1. Curb Appeal. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—curb appeal is the most important feature to get buyers to take a closer look at your home. The view from the street is the first impression potential buyers will have of your home. That’s why we’re listing it as Number 1. Not only are people drawn to attractive houses and landscapes, but also many buyers are looking for move-in ready homes and no one wants to imagine coming home everyday to an unattractive sight. Failing to update the exterior might be a turn off to potential buyers before they even get a good look at your gem of a home.
Curb appeal can be accomplished in a number of ways. Some updates like exterior paint, landscaping, and a new front door are easy, cost-effective ways to give the home a new look.
