Give Your House an Exterior Makeover

by Anna Teyssonniere de Gramont 04/14/2019

If you want to help your house stand out to prospective buyers, it may be beneficial to give your residence an exterior makeover. Because if your home boasts outstanding curb appeal, your residence could stir up lots of interest from potential buyers as soon as it becomes available.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you give your residence an exterior makeover.

1. Eliminate Clutter

Lawn gnomes, plastic flamingoes and other home exterior decorations are unlikely to help you sell your residence. In fact, these lawn decorations may prove to be major turn-offs to buyers. However, if you remove home exterior decorations and assorted clutter from outside your home, you could make your residence more attractive than ever before.

Remember, your home only gets one chance to make a positive first impression on a buyer. If you eliminate clutter from outside your house, you can help your house make a great first impression on buyers. And as a result, many buyers could be drawn to your residence when they see it for the first time.

2. Take Care of Your Lawn

Tall grass, weeds and other lawn problems may make it tough for a buyer to fall in love with your house. Fortunately, if you take care of your lawn, you may be able to differentiate your residence from comparable houses in your city or town.

Spend some time mowing the lawn, trimming hedges and removing debris from walkways outside your home. Of course, if you want expert lawn care help, you can always hire a professional landscaping company too.

3. Consider the Buyer's Perspective

How buyers perceive your residence likely will have far-flung effects on your home selling experience. For example, if your home has a pristine lawn and beautiful siding, a buyer may be drawn to your residence. On the other hand, if your home has a messy lawn and damaged siding, a buyer may shy away from your house.

Think about how a buyer may perceive your residence when he or she sees it for the first time. Then, you can prioritize home exterior upgrades and improve your residence's exterior accordingly.

As you prepare to list your residence, you may want to employ a real estate agent as well. This housing market professional will work with you to develop an effective home selling strategy.

Usually, a real estate agent will learn about you and your home selling goals. He or she next will provide recommendations and suggestions so you can upgrade your residence before you list it. Finally, after you list your home, a real estate agent will promote your residence to prospective buyers. And if you receive an offer to purchase your home, a real estate agent will help you make an informed decision about this property buying proposal.

For home sellers, it often is beneficial to upgrade a residence's exterior. If you start home exterior improvement projects today, you can take the first steps to enhance your house and maximize your property sale earnings.
