Selling Tips - Curb Appeal

When selling the first thing you should do is go outside and have a look at your property not through your own familiar view but try and look at everything as if you were the buyer and you had never seen the place before. It does make a difference. Some ideas of how to improve things;
  • Open the blinds and curtains! Having a 'closed look' does not create an inviting impression.
  • Clean the windows.
  • Paint or restain the front door.
  • Change the mail box if old and dated.
  • Ensure outside lights are working and clean & make sure the light is bright enough.
  • Repaint the trim if needed.
  • Sweep and clean the whole front entrance area.
  • Add some plantings or potted plants.
  • Maintain the landscaping and make it attractive as possible.
  • Ask your neighbours to clean their yards if creating a bad impression.
