A few small changes can drastically transform your home’s first impression!

In today’s busy market, the key to getting top dollar for your home is to create huge demand. To get as many people through the door as possible, your home has to stand out from the competition.

There’s no need to completely overhaul your home’s exterior as it’s often the little details that increase the visual appeal of a property. Here are a few ideas that will enhance your home’s curb appeal:

Face Wash
Making a great first impression on potential buyers is crucial, so scrub down your home’s exterior and clean all of the windows.

Your Number’s Up
Replacing your boring old faded numbers with a fresh new number plate is something you should address (pardon the pun) as it’s the first thing buyers see when looking for your home.

Perfect Porch
A well-lit porch with some comfortable chairs and a few hanging baskets will set a tranquil tone for potential buyers as they enter your home.

Light It Up
Solar lights will add a welcoming glow that will make your home stand out at night while dramatically highlighting your home’s best exterior features.

Peeling Paint
It’s important that buyers are able to tell that your home is well cared for so touch up any weathered or flaky bits of paint to give your home a fresh new look.

Fixture Fix
Replacing outdated fixtures such as your mailbox, door handle and porch light is an easy way to update your home’s appearance.

Green Grass
Cut the grass and trim the hedges. Well-kept flower beds show pride of ownership and a few large pots full of bright flowers will accentuate the entranceway.

Cut the Clutter
An uncluttered exterior is as important as an uncluttered interior so put away tools, toys, bikes, dog bones, garbage cans and gardening equipment.

Apply Pressure
There’s no pressure when it comes to sprucing up your deck, fence or driveway as a pressure washer will instantly wash the grime away!

Watch Your Back
When buyers drive by your home, they’ll usually try to catch a glimpse of the backyard so make sure it also gets top-notch treatment!

Just as people judge a book by its cover, buyers make assumptions about the interior of your home based on how the outside looks.

It’s therefore important to make a great first impression starting from the curb. Your efforts will significantly increase the chances of your home selling quickly and for top dollar!
