Selling Tip: Buy a New Welcome Mat

 

First impressions are everything – at least when selling a home. The home’s exterior serves as a snapshot of what’s to come when potential buyers enter your home. Homes with high curb appeal command higher prices and take less time to sell.

How do you get your curb appeal up? Three ways: Replace, Clean, and Repair.

First things first, get a new welcome mat. Your well-loved mat, while perfect for you, tells prospective homebuyers that the inside might be worn out and dated, too. First impressions count, so make it a good one!

Next, freshen up the exterior. A good paint job may be in order. Before painting though, try a good power wash to get all the dust, dirt, and cobwebs off. Not to mention, a good power wash can reveal the truth color of your flagstone walkways. Don’t forget the windows, inside and out.

Painting can be an expensive and time-consuming facelift. If you can’t paint the entire home, paint the trim in an accent color. This is a relatively simple upgrade that provides plenty of pop.

Are repairs needed? Take the time to fasten sagging gutters, repair damaged screen doors, repoint bricks that have lost their mortar, replace burned out lights, straighten shutters, replace cracked windows, and check the roof for missing, broken or faded shingles.

Lastly, manicure the yard! Removing fallen leaves, trimming shrubs, pulling weeds, and covering bare spots will reap benefits in your home’s selling price.
