Your home’s curb appeal is the first chance to impress potential buyers. Whether buyers are wowed by a beautiful and well-maintained yard or are repelled by dirty exterior walls and an overgrown lawn can significantly impact your home’s sales price. 

 

Here are a few tips to make sure your curb appeal is making the best impression on potential buyers…

Clean your house. 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.

Apply a fresh coat of paint. A new coat of neutral colored paint can make a huge impact giving your home a new, clean and inviting look.

A well-manicured yard.  Your front yard creates your home’s first impression to prospective buyers, so make sure that your lawn is green and trimmed and your shrubs and flower beds are well taken care of.

 

Repair the roof. If your roof is damaged, dirty or missing shingles, it can have a negative impact on the value of your home. If your neighbors’ roofs are well maintained or have been recently replaced, it will make yours look especially ragged. Sometimes a good cleaning is all you need to have your roof look like new. However, that isn’t a project you will want to take on yourself without the proper equipment; hire a professional with the right tools and training, who will be able to clean your roof without damaging it. 

By making a few simple changes to your home’s exterior, you can increase your home’s value and should help it sell more quickly.
