DEADLY MISTAKE #3 – Taking for granted the “curb appeal” of your home.
When you’re preparing to sell your home for sale, remember the importance of first impressions. A buyer’s first impression can make or break the deal. I can not tell you how many times I have had a buyer refuse to get out of the car because of the way a prospective home looked from the street. If the curb appeal is not there they don’t want to look inside. Experts estimate that over half of the homes that sell do so before the buyer gets out of the car. If it looks good from the street their mind is made up on the spot. Naturally the interior has to be acceptable, but curb appeal is critical.
Given this information, stand on the street in front of your home and take a realistic look. Has the lawn been mowed regularly? Are the shrubs healthy and well trimmed? Is the trim paint fresh and clean looking? If applicable, is the paint fresh? Is the property covered with “treasures” that have not been moved for months or years? Have the windows been washed lately? It may be time for a dump run or dumpster delivery so that you can weed out those treasures.
