Importance of Curb Appeal

Importance of Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is an important part of selling your home. Curb appeal is your first impression with the buyer and you will want to make it appealing as possible.

It’s difficult to look at our own house in the same way that potential home buyers do, because when we become accustomed to the way something looks and functions, we can’t see its faults. You need to remember it’s a house; a commodity you want to sell for the highest price possible.

To gain a better understanding of the curb appeal that your home possesses, you may want to approach your home as if you were a potential buyer. You should approach your house from the street and ask yourself the following questions (Tip: It may be helpful to take pictures of the home to help in the critique):

Is the first impression of your home and yard positive?

Is the yard and house clean?

What are the best exterior features of the house? How can you enhance them?

What are the worst exterior features of the house? How can you minimize or improve them?

What can I do to make this more attractive?

Do I know how to make my curb appeal better?

Once these questions are addressed, the next step is to improve on the problems found.  If you don’t have the time or skills necessary to the improvements yourself then call System to Sell.
