Adding Curb Appeal Can Sell Your Home Faster
In a slow real estate market, a person can generally sell their home quicker by dropping their asking price. In a market where supply is greater than demand, a desperate seller may see a lower price as their only option to shorten their home’s time on the market.
There are however, other things that a seller can do that will help boost their home’s appeal to potential buyers. Some things can be done without costing any money while others may cost a few bucks. In the long run, a few well-spent dollars can end up saving you thousands when you are not forced to drop your asking price in order to make a sale.
Some things you can do that can potentially make your home more sellable aren’t done in or around your home. Your realtor can help add some ways to make your home more attractive to buyers. Sellers can often be enticed by things like money towards their closing costs or even entirely covering the closing costs as a way to sweeten the deal in a down market. Other things that can help motivate a buyer include a home warranty or an option to close the sale within 30-60 days. These types of incentives can make you home even more attractive.
A seller may sometimes overlook or under prioritize the value of curb appeal
The very first thing a potential buyer will see is what the home looks like from the outside. A home that doesn’t look appealing from the curb may be overlooked based on nothing other than it’s exterior appearance.
Things like planting flowers, adding a fresh coat of paint to the front door or adding a new mailbox are inexpensive ways improve your home’s appearance at first glance. Some would argue that curb appeal is everything and your first impression often sets your expectations on the rest of the home.
Another way to increase your home’s curb appeal is by cleaning your home’s exterior. Dirty sidewalks, siding, patios or decks can be an instant turn off for potential buyers. The standard of cleanliness you maintain on your home’s exterior is often measured against your home’s interior cleanliness, when being viewed by potential buyers.
A dirty roof may also set off a false alarm telling buyers a roof needs to be replaced and will cost thousands of dollars. Having your roof professionally cleaned will only cost a fraction of the cost of roof replacement. Removing roof algae will dramatically improve curb appeal and eliminate the threat of losing a buyer because of an unsightly roof.
