How your home looks on the outside could significantly impact a potential buyers perception of how much your home is worth. Here are some noteworthy tips from the National Association of REALTORS® on how to enhance your home’s curb appeal and help you get the best possible price when it’s time to sell.
CLEAN EXTERIOR WALLS & WINDOWS It’s not only the inside of your home that needs to be kept clean of dirt and grime, the outside of your home should be just as spotless. Clean your outer walls with soapy water and wash your windows inside and out.
FRESH COAT OF PAINT A new coat of paint is like a face-lift for your home. Try to pick a color in a neutral so that it will appeal to the most people possible.
KEEP GRASS CLEAN & TIDY Your front yard creates your home’s first impression to prospective buyers. Make sure that your lawn is green and trimmed and your shrubs and flower beds are well tended.
CLEAN & REPAIR THE ROOF If your roof is damaged, dirty or missing shingles, it can have a negative impact on the value of your home. Make sure your gutters are cleaned at least once a year; this will show you have maintained your home well.
