When preparing your property to show, many people only think of improving the interior, but you want to make sure you do not dismiss the other very important feature to your home: the exterior.

You only have one chance to make a first impression.  Within seconds of pulling up, potential buyers will make their opinion about your home. So, try to view it from their perspective and start thinking like a buyer. Go stand on the opposite curb and observe your property.   Compare it to surrounding properties.

Most people initially start their search by online listing sites.  If your home initially appeals to them, then homebuyers will take the next step by doing either doing a drive-by or setting up a showing with their realtor to view the home themselves.

Below are 6 easy & cost effective updates to boost your home’s “curb appeal” to generate more buyers!

 

     1.  A Fresh Coat of Paint

This can do wonders to increase a home’s perceived value and will immediately make your home more inviting.  Stay away from unusual or loud colours. The new color should fit in with surrounding houses, and complement the style and structure of your house. Dependent on the siding of your home, you may not be able to paint it directly. However, you are still able to give a fresh coat to your garage doors, front door, porch, shutters and trim.  The front door and surrounding area should look particularly fresh and welcoming, as this will be the buyer’s first close-up impression as they enter the home. If you paint nothing else at least give your door a new coat.

 

      2. Numbers

Replace your old & dingy house numbers, doorknob and mailbox. Ensure the lock works smoothly and the key fits properly. Keep the porch swept and buy a new doormat. As the Realtor is fumbling for the keys, these little updates are getting noticed by the homebuyers.

 

      3. LIGHTS!

A popular showing tip is to turn on all the lights in the home to give it a warm and “livability” feel.  This also applies to your home’s exterior, helping to highlight the entrance to your home, making it a safe & welcoming place to enter!

 

      4. Landscaping

How does your landscaping measure up to the rest of the neighbourhood? A well-tended garden alludes to a well-maintained home. Something potential buyers would considered a plus. You may want to think about buying a couple bushes and planting them around the property. Do not buy trees. Large, mature ones are too expensive and immature trees don’t tend to significantly improve the immediate appearance of your home.

If your problem is too much greenery, get out your pruning shears or borrow the neighbours. The purpose of landscaping is to complement the home, not hide it. Overgrown shrubs should be sheared to a height at the bottom of the windows, remove any ivy clinging to the house, and tree limbs should be high enough to walk under. Your lawn should be freshly cut or watered and minimal brown or bald spots. Think about re-soding those areas if needed and rake up any leaves or grass cuttings.

Planting a few seasonal flowers is an easy way to add color and vibrancy to your yard, enhancing that first impression of your home. If you don’t have an area in which to plant flowers, considering purchasing a few flower pots for your porch with flowers or blooming plants.

 

       5. Check the roof!

Old or leaking roofs should be replaced. If there are leaks, you’ll have to disclose this detail to the homebuyer anyway, and they will want it replaced. It may not be a cheap fix but is well worth the price, as curled or missing shingles usually sends homebuyers in the opposite direction.

 

        6.  Powerwash

If your driveway or carport has old oil stains or algae buildup, getting it power washed until it shines also send s a good message as a well maintained home.

 

 

It can be tough to criticize your home if you’ve lived in it a long time. This is where getting the opinion of your REALTOR can be a good idea, especially if you looking to list your home in the near future.
