Transcription: Looking to sell your home? Selling a house is an exciting experience that can be financially rewarding. As a homeowner you want to maximize your selling price. A great place to start is the exterior look of your home. Creating curb appeal will ensure prospective buyers want to come inside.
First impressions are very important. Try seeing your home through the eyes of a potential buyer. Small lapses in maintenance over the years may have become invisible to you, but will be extremely obvious to potential buyers. Remember a little investment today will help you maximize your selling price tomorrow. There are plenty of helpful low-cost tips to create more curb appeal without spending a bundle. Here are a few:
- Remove all yard debris
- Cut, rake and patch any lawn discolourations
- Wash the driveway and patch cracks and holes
- Repair and paint your fence
- Clean the gutters and windows, and replace any broken windows or torn screens
- Repair and replace and damaged siding or shingles
- Touch up any peeling paint on doors, windows, siding, and trim
- Consider updating your front door handles, number sign, and lights
Remember, prospective buyers will judge your house within the first 30 seconds, so make sure you maximize this opportunity by adding natural beauty and colour with flower boxes and planters.
