Updated: Feb 3, 2021
Improve to landscape
Curb appeal is the first impression for home buyers. A home with poor landscaping gives a bad impression and leaves buyers with a less favorable view.
Plant flowers & trees/ bushes
Invest in sod
Mow the grass
Again a bad first impression is dooming, a bad outside will give buyers the impression that the inside is in disrepair.
Pressure wash the outside
Clean the gutters
De-weed the cracks in any concrete
Take the time to make any glaring repairs to your home. No buyer wants to buy a house that they perceive as full of problems. e.g. Leaks, windows, or any other problems. Contact a remodeler & repair expert such as Custom Integrity Homes.
Make the Front Porch Inviting
Consider repainting your door with a bright color, adding a new welcome mat, and replacing the house numbers to give a fresh and inviting impression. Also,
be sure to sweep any dirt & clutter from the area.
Clutter is proven to make people feel anxious or stressed. This is the last thing you want buyers to feel during the walkthrough.
Remove the following:
Trash - magazines, mail, and other objects lying around
Make sure all tables & counters are cleaned off
Opening blinds & curtains makes a room feel inviting and larger.
Put out calming air fresheners, make sure any stubborn smells are gone from the space. Remove any litter boxes or other bad-smelling items.
Clean All Surfaces
From sweeping, garages & carports to furniture and fans make sure every surface in your house is clean.
Organize Drawers & Closets
Messy storage spaces will give the appearance that your home doesn't have enough storage.
Tone Down any bright wall colors in your home. E.G Lime Green, Pink these colors can turn off buyers. Paint walls a neutral color such as white. Click here to read how to pick your colors.
