Why Is Curb Appeal Important?

by Robin Tanner 09/30/2018

Believe it or not, curb appeal can make or break the home selling journey. If a house has a pristine front lawn, flawless siding and clutter-free walkways, it may make a positive first impression on potential buyers. And once buyers walk through this home, they may be ready to submit an offer to purchase the residence right away.

As a home seller, it generally is a good idea to do everything possible to boost your house's curb appeal. Lucky for you, we're here to help you enhance your residence's curb appeal so you can increase the likelihood of a fast, profitable property selling experience.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you transform your home's exterior from drab to fab.

1. Mow the Lawn

If tall grass and weeds cover your front lawn, you may want to give your lawn a makeover. Because if you mow the lawn, trim the hedges and perform other lawn care tasks, you may be able to bolster your lawn's appearance in just hours.

Of course, if you need expert lawn care assistance, professional landscapers are available. Landscapers can help you improve your lawn's appearance without delay.

2. Repair Cracked or Chipped Siding

If home siding is cracked or chipped, you may want to perform siding repairs. In some instances, you may be able to fill in minor cracks, chips or gaps in your home's siding on your own.

On the other hand, if your home's siding is old and beyond repair, you may want to hire a contractor to replace it. Get price quotes from several home siding professionals in your area. Then, you can determine which home siding professional can offer the best services at a price that matches your budget.

3. Remove Lawn Clutter

If you've decorated your front lawn with plastic flamingoes, lawn gnomes or other knick-knacks, you may want to remove them. By doing so, you can help buyers see the full potential of your house and allow them to envision what life may be like if they purchase your residence.

For those who have lots of lawn decorations, it may be beneficial to sell them at a yard sale or online. Meanwhile, if there are lawn decorations that you intend to keep, you may want to rent a storage unit for these items and other personal belongings.

As you search for ways to achieve the best-possible results during the home selling journey, you may want to hire a real estate agent too. If you have a real estate agent at your side, you can receive comprehensive guidance throughout the property selling journey. Plus, a real estate agent will respond to your home selling concerns and questions, ensuring you can make informed decisions as you navigate the property selling cycle.

Allocate time and resources to upgrade your house's curb appeal today, and you may be better equipped than ever before to enjoy a seamless home selling experience.
