Selling Your Home?

Step outside and Take a Look!

Home sellers spend so much time preparing their interior for the sale that they can easily overlook the exterior. Yet great curb appeal can increase the value of a property by as much as 15–20%.

Buyers associate the condition of your home’s exterior and landscape with the condition of the interior. Ideally, your home’s appearance invites potential buyers to ‘cross the threshold’ and take a closer look.

Best of all, you needn’t spend a ton of money to make a big difference. Ask your·Prudential Real Estate Agent·for ways to boost your home’s curb appeal.

Basic steps to increase your home's appeal . . .

Does your home stand out from the rest?·Apply fresh paint

Ensure the street in front is clean

Wash all windows and coverings

Replace damaged screens

Inspect roof and gutters – remove debris

Keep garbage bins out of sight; odor free

Add a new ‘Welcome’ mat and light fixture to the porch··

Are your yards clean and neat?·Trim shrubs and trees

Sweep the front walkways

Mow the lawn more frequently

Plant flowers that are in season

Rake and remove leaves and debris

Keep pet areas spotless; odor free

Remove newspapers, bikes, and toys··

Crowded driveway?·Keep extra vehicles out of sight

Park vehicles away from the property··

Other Thoughts

Arrange to be away when home viewing's are scheduled to make buyers comfortable when touring your home.

If buyers want to view your property unaccompanied, refer them to your agent for an appointment.
