When selling a home, first impressions are essential, and while your house may look gorgeous on the inside, the outside plays an important role as well. Make sure that the landscaping and the outward appearance are as attractive as the rest of the house.
The first step to getting buyers’ attention is through fabulous photography. Before you start taking digital shots get rid of extra items that don’t make your home look its best. Capture the best features of each room and examine the photos as if you were the buyer. What do you think? Would you want to live there?
You can apply the same rule when you are analyzing each corner of the house. Acting like a buyer and walking around with a critical attitude can allow you to notice things you’ve never seen before.
When it comes to exterior appearance, a clean and perfect roof will earn you extra points with the buyers. Also, bringing a second pair of eyes will offer you more information and a new perspective on what needs to be fixed or replaced. Ask a friend to help you out!
If you have a garden, plant some flowers – it will instantly change the landscape. If planting isn’t an option, you can always add some colorful flowers on the porch or window boxes.
Open your curtains and let the light in. Brighter homes sell much faster!
Adding a welcome mat, painting the front door and changing the porch light fixture will offer your house a new look and a cozier appearance.
All these tips will boost your home’s curb appeal and get potential buyers through your front door sooner than you think.
