Give Your Curb Appeal a Boost Before You Sell

Good Landscaping, Good First Impression

78% of real estate agents say poor landscaping affects property values. As a seller, that means your yard could impact your bottom line. As realtor.com says:

“First impressions matter when you’re getting ready to sell a house. Your home’s curb appeal can help you earn top dollar – or it can send buyers running for the hills.”

Small Updates Can Go a Long Way

To improve your home’s first impression for potential buyers, focus on these things:

  1. Trim and shape any hedges and/or trees

  2. Keep the lawn mowed and edged

  3. Put down new mulch

  4. Remove any dead branches

  5. Power wash, stain, or paint the deck

Updates Beyond Landscaping

A few more improvements you can do that are beyond landscaping that can also go a long way are:

  1. Update/refresh the paint on your front door

  2. Add a fresh coat of paint to trim

  3. Update your house numbers

  4. Check window screens and replace as necessary

  5. Power wash front porch, walkways, and driveway

You only have one shot at making a first impression. The same can be said about your home! If you need help with getting your home ready for sale, I have landscapers and painters ready to help.
