Whether you’re getting ready to sell – or simply want to be the talk of the neighborhood – now is the perfect time to up your curb appeal game. What’s curb appeal? It’s everything that goes into your home’s first impression to visitors and potential buyers alike. We’re talking about your lawn, landscaping, entrance area and even the exterior of your home.
It’s also one of the features of a home Realtors universally suggest sellers improve before listing. Consider these two findings from a few years ago.
- 99% percent of Realtors believe curb appeal is important in attracting a buyer.
- 94% of agents have suggested that sellers improve their curb appeal before listing their home.
The bottom line? A home without curb appeal has less value, could take longer to sell and won’t stand out from the crowd – which could be especially harmful in a market like this. So, spring to the top of the minds of buyers by focusing on your (home’s) outer beauty.
