Curb Appeal for Sellers

Curb appeal sets expectations. Prospective buyers are more inclined to look inside if they like what they see on the outside. First impressions make a difference when it comes to selling a home. … Conversely, the home’s curb appeal should entice buyers to inquire further.

Here are some handy tips to start:

  1. Roof: Your roof is a big one. If it has been a while since your roof was replaced or appears unattractive you should look into doing some repairs. It will raise the value of the home and put the buyer at ease knowing they won’t have to replace the roof in a few years.
  2. Siding & Decks: Is your siding and deck looking a bit run down or dirty? Grab a power washer and give it a good wash. A new coat of stain can perk things up for BBQ season!
  3. Sidewalks & Drives: Take a look at your sidewalk, is it chipped and a trip hazard? Even your pavers by adding sand, rock or concrete to enhance the look and safety.
  4. House Numbers & Outdoor Furniture: Your house number should be visible, easy to read and clean. Remove old outdoor furniture that has seen better days. Replace cushions or keep your deck furniture free. Let potential buyer’s imagine their patio set on the deck.
  5. Landscaping & Lighting: Keeping a clean trimmed yard is important. A yard that has been allowed to grow wild, dead grass or trees says to a buyer that the inside must look the same. Take the time to mow, pull weeds and trim the hedge! Sidewalks, drives, front and back doors should have adequate lighting for safety and esthetics. Create a well lit environment that will appeal to buyers and deter trespassers.
  6. Garbage & Clutter: Clean it up! Put away hoses, tools, old plant pots, construction material, sticks & leaves, garbage. Keep it neat and tidy as possible.
