A properly staged home shows the home's possibilities and potential, creates an inviting
space to inspire potential buyers, and generates a mood befitting the home (inside and outside).
Remember... First Impressions are Lasting Impressions
Potential buyers will size up your home before they even enter. If your home lacks curb appeal, many prospective buyers will reject it without looking further or will try to low ball you on price. Here are a few tips to turn browsers into buyers:
* Paint the house if paint is peeling or looking dull.
* Display easy-to-read house numbers.
* Mow the lawn and trim the shrubs.
* Wash the windows.
* Power wash siding and walkways.
* Make any repairs that make the outside of the house look unappealing.
* Be sure the doorbell works.
* Select a doormat that compliments the architecture and color of your house. (One that
says "Welcome" works, but monograms and team doormats don't).
* Remove garbage bins and anything else that may be unsightly. (As obvious as that
sounds. (I've seen that many times.)
