Curb appeal will ensure that your home gets seen by the most prospective purchasers in a competitive housing market. Within seconds of seeing your home, buyers will have formed their opinion. They either like what they see and want to see more, or they won’t give your listing a second thought. This is why the exterior of your home shouldn't be an afterthought. If a buyer likes the photos from your online listing, they will do a drive-by or schedule a showing to see the home for themselves.
Here are five easy and inexpensive updates to boost your home’s curb appeal:
A Fresh Coat
Paint your front door, shutters and trim to freshen up the exterior. Consider a vibrant color that complements your home style.
Replace your old house numbers, doorknob and mailbox. Everyone will come up close and personal with these fixtures- and they will judge your home based on these not-so-minor details.
A popular Open House tip is to turn on all the lights to give your home a sense of warmth; as well as the exterior lights to welcome buyers in.
For an inexpensive and low-effort way to add color to your home's exterior, keep a well-tended garden to allude to a well-maintained home.
Raise The Roof!
Fixing your roof isn't exactly a "cheap" fix, but it's worth the price as a home with missing or curled shingles isn't appealing to potential homebuyers.
It can help to ask your real estate agent to offer some constructive criticism to help bring your home up to par. Their mission is the same as yours–to sell your home for the right price and in quick time frame.
