If you’re thinking about putting your home on the market anytime soon, you’ll have plenty of tasks to take care of, including making your home look as presentable as possible for potential buyers. One of the best things you can do for yourself in the days, week and months ahead to better facilitate a quick house sale is focus on boosting your property’s curb appeal. Here are several useful tips to help you get started:
No matter how good of a job you do when it comes to keeping your home’s exterior clean, time, the weather and nature have a way of setting you back a few paces. Dirt and mildew start to collect on the outside of your home over time, and the best way to take care of the problem is to have a professional pressure wash your home. Even though it’s true that you can rent a pressure washer and handle the job yourself, you can easily do more harm than good if you aren’t properly trained on the task, stripping your home of its paint job. And speaking of paint…
Once the pressure washing is all done, think about renewing the look and feel of the outside of your home with a few coats of fresh paint. For the best results, you’ll want to opt for colors that buyers will flock to, which might not necessarily be a color that you choose. Remember, you’re doing this for your home’s next owner, not yourself, which might mean selecting a color that you don’t 100 percent love. You should also think about painting your fences, trim and railings as well if they’re looking a bit worse for wear.
Simply cutting your grass and tending to the landscaping can do wonders for how your home looks and feels on the outside. While it’s true that you might have to spend money to make your yard look its best, you have to recognize the fact that your investment can not only attract buyers, but boost your home’s overall asking price as well. Make your home look freshly unwrapped and interested parties are sure to come flocking.
Your roof is one area of your home that’s so easy to overlook, mainly because you can’t see it in its entirety from the ground. That being said, you can bet that homebuyers will examine your roof with a microscope before they think about making an offer. This is because a poor roof can lead to a number of problems and unnecessary spending the longer those problems go unattended. Imagine the frustration of making an offer on a home, celebrating when that offer is accepted and moving in only to learn that you’ve got a leaking roof, mildew and mold to contend with. That’s the exact scenario your potential buyers want to sidestep, which is why you need to have your roof examined and repaired before putting it on the market.
Buyers not only like to drive and drop by your home during daylight hours, they might swing by to see what your neighborhood and property look like at night. A well-lit home provides peace of mind, and it can accentuate the best parts of your property as well. Don’t cheat yourself out of an offer; do what you can to brighten up your home’s exterior for security purposes as well as for visual aesthetics.
You won’t do yourself any favors by putting all your time, effort and money into just the inside of your home. Let your property’s exterior send a welcoming invitation with the above suggestions.
