First Impressions

First Impressions

When selling your home, you only have one chance to make a first impression.

Buyers should have a WOW! moment when they pull up to your home. To help make that happen, add these tips to your list of things to do to impress buyers.

Landscaping. Keep that lawn green; try to have the best front lawn on your block. Overgrown or dead lawns can turn off buyers and make your home seem high maintenance.

Garage. Clean your garage and put away any loose tools or recreational items. People want to see the garage is big enough to park their car, not just to be used as storage.

Exterior. A fresh coat of paint, even on the trim, can make a home stand out and look clean and fresh. Don't forget to clean the windows and polish or replace any exposed hardware.

Decks and Patios. Power washing goes a long way into making patio furniture and a dirty deck look new again. There are companies that specifically restore existing decks and fences. Be sure to designate areas such as a BBQ area, a dining area, or a relaxing lounge space around a fire pit. This will help buyers see the patio or deck as an extension of the living area.

I hope you find these tips helpful while you prepare for your open house. As a professional agent, I can give you the tools you need to help your home shine and be the number one pick for buyers.
