Has your home been on the market a little longer than you had planned? How is your curb appeal? Known as “outdoor staging,” great curb appeal is just as important as a lavish indoors. No one will ever know the quality of the interior is you never get them past the mailbox.
An attractive exterior with fresh paint, clean windows, freshly mowed lawn, and colorful plants will set the stage for the indoors. There are certain issues that come up when dealing with city properties such as litter, leaves, among other things. Neighborhood homes have other issues like homes next door not taking care of their property. Some home sellers have asked next door neighbors to clean their yard up and even paid to have their home painted. Do what you can to make your home look the most presentable, no matter the obstacle.
Increasing your home’s curb appeal does not have to be costly, unless your home calls for professional service. It is something that might not give you a direct return, but it will help you get a buyer in your front door. Sellers have also found it helpful to take pictures of their home during different seasons so buyers can see the beauty of the home during nice summer seasons even in the midst of winter.
Give me a call to learn more about the importance of good curb appeal and to see how you can help your home attract more buyers looking to relocate to Denver.
