The curb appeal of your home is important when it comes to trying to sell. Your home’s curb appeal is the first impression someone gets when looking at your house. If they don’t like the outside of it, it is possible that they won’t even want to look at the rest of the house. You want your property to have a “wow” factor and an inviting feel. Waltham Realtors claim that a curb appeal often entices buyers to inquire further. Here are some essential areas of your property to address before you put your home on the market.
Wash the Siding
If it’s been a while since you’ve washed the siding of your home, now would be a great time! If the siding on your home is dirty it may give people the impression that you don’t take great care of your property. You can wash your siding on your own with soap and water but if that’s not enough you may need to hire a professional. You can also take this time to wash your garage too!
Revitalize the Paint Job
After cleaning the siding of your home you may notice that there are some chips or cracks in the paint. Waltham Realtors suggest painting over these chips and cracks to make sure your home is looking good as new. When someone is looking at a house they don’t want to see things that they may have to fix themselves. Because of this, it is best that you get them done before putting your home on the market.
Fix Up the Lawn
Having a grown out lawn, collection of weeds, untidy hedges & bushes, etc. can really turn someone off from a home. Waltham Real Estate Agents suggest taking the time to trim any hedges, bushes, or trees that are overgrown, mow your lawn, and pull out any weeds you may have in your yard. Having a clean and put together landscape will attract buyers a lot more than if your yard was a mess.
Update the Front Door
Having a door that’s beaten down can set a bad tone to visitors entering your house for a tour says Waltham Realtors. If your front door is in bad shape we suggest fixing it up. Whether that means repainting it, washing it, or even replacing it, it is important to not let visitors see a beaten-down door for the home they are about to walkthrough.
Add Landscape Lighting
If you’re having any tours at night, having landscape lighting would really bring your home’s exterior to the next level. You can accent trees, bushes, and flower beds by adding lighting to them which would instantly attract the buyer’s eye. Landscape lighting is also great because if you’ve put in a lot of work into the exterior of your property to get it ready for showings, people will be able to still notice the high points of your landscape at night time.
