Creating a good first impression is essential when it comes to selling your home.
One of the best ways to attract potential buyers is by improving your home’s kerb appeal. Here are some tips to help you get started:
Clean the exterior
A clean exterior can boost the asking price, while a dirty one can detract from it. Pressure wash the walls, bricks, garage door, window shutters, front door, and all the windows. Don’t forget to wash the gutters and drain pipes. Paint whatever needs painting and be careful to choose high-quality paints that won’t peel or fade in the sun.
Landscape the yard
A well-manicured lawn is essential in creating an attractive exterior. Mow the lawn and make sure it’s neatly edged. Remove any landscaping that’s not appealing and replace it with colourful flowers and plants. Consider adding flowerboxes and upscale rocking chairs with colourful cushions.
Pay attention to the details
Check the shape of your mailbox, outdoor lighting, and house numbers. Replace anything that’s old or rusted with an updated version. Check the fence and driveway and make necessary repairs to increase their appeal.
Get a second opinion
It’s a good idea to get a second opinion from someone with an unbiased point of view. Also ask your Real Estate Agent for their tips and suggestions, and see if they recommend any third party assistance as well. They can give you feedback on how to make your kerb appeal even better.
By following these tips, you can increase your home’s kerb appeal and attract potential buyers. Remember, a well-kept exterior can help capture a buyer’s interest and drive up the asking price.
