Generating curb appeal
First impressions matter to a potential buyer. Ensure your home emits a a positive one.
Amping up your home's curb appeal starts with a short walk across the street. Turn and look back at your house. What draws your eye?
Finding what it takes to entice a buyer inside may be as simple as a small purchase or as complex as a major renovation. Ask a local real estate agent or an interior designer for more ideas like these that may help cast your seller's spell:
Accenting a focal point of your home's front can range from a touch of color to a complete remodel. Keep in mind that any changes should augment rather than dominate the scene.
Be wary of planting flowers around base or running plants up the post or pole since it might attract bees.
Keep in mind that some believe the journey matters more than the destintion.
An ill-kept yard can turn away suitors quickly. Don't force them to use their imagination. Let a landscape designer help create a welcoming view.
If a potential buyer sees more potential than you do in your house, they may ask for a discount for the fixes they forsee.
Don't overlook how your home looks at night. Do the lights you burn in the evenings cast a favorable glow or a harsh view of your residence? You never know when a potential buyer may drive past. Give them a reason to stop.
