Selling your home in today’s market requires thoughtful planning and expertise. Buyers usually make snap judgements on whether or not your home fits into their criteria based on what they see in drive-by’s or what they see in photos online.
The way your property looks from the street compared to your neighbour’s is a key factor in comparative value. Satisfying curb appeal is very important in getting the buyer to take the next steps to purchase.
By giving your property a well cared for appearance, buyers will be eager to stop and excited to see the interior as well.
Compare your curb appeal to other homes that are for sale in the neighbourhood. What can you do to spruce up the front yard? Is your lawn lush and green? How do your flower beds look? Are there any repairs needed? Are there any visual distractions? What about the kid’s toys- are they stored neatly away? Don’t forget about your side and back yard. Buyers will walk around the entire house.
Here are a few easy and quick tips to help your home stand out from the crowd:
- Power wash siding and walk ways
- Hang easy to read house numbers
- Plant blooming flowers and fresh greenery
- Keep the lawn mowed
- Wash the windows and clean up any cobwebs
- Repaint or re-stain the front porch.
The first impression for the buyer is a lasting impression. Show them that your house is worth moving into and not moving on.
