Sellers: Ramp Up Your Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is one of the most important factors in selling a home, and one of the most difficult to quantify, but one thing is certain — homes sell for more money when they have it.


With Spring Selling season just around the corner, now would be a good time to work on the curb appeal of your home. You only have one chance to make a first impression on home buyers. Even people not actively looking to buy can be turned into interested buyers when they drive by an active listing with exceptional curb appeal.


Especially in this market where we see buyers standing in line to get into a home on weekends, the curb appeal is even more important. Buyers spend more time in front of the home waiting their turn and their mood is set by the look of the home.


It’s important not only to make the home look at it’s best, but also the yard. Planting some fresh flowers and adding some potted plants on the porch are small investments with a big return.


The front door is considered the ‘smile’ of the house. Clean, paint or replace if needed to make sure your home looks inviting.
