How to increase curb appeal

curb appeal

A buyer’s first impression sticks. Think about what attracts you to a property when looking at homes online and what is the first thing you notice when attending an open house. Prospective buyers are attracted by the home’s curb appeal. The National Association of Realtors® says that 63 percent of people will drive by a property they liked online to see how it looks in person.

Here are three basic tips to help you increase your home’s curb appeal:

1. Declutter your front yard and driveway.
Whether it’s keeping up with lawn maintenance, trimming bushes or picking up toys, a well-kept yard makes a positive impression on prospective buyers. If the front of your home is in disarray, buyers assume the interior will be as well.

2. Make decorative outdoor furniture a focal point.
Nothing says “welcome home” more than comfortable seating on a porch or patio. People who are considering moving to your neighborhood will sense that it’s a friendly, safe place to spend time relaxing outside.

3. Power wash your home’s exterior.
Remove any dirt, leaves, grime, or cobwebs to really make your home shine. Follow up by washing all of the windows, inside and out.

For more information on increasing your curb appeal, please call, email, or text Rachel.
