The blog post that I did about gardening just recently, got me wondering about curb appeal. Does curb appeal help sellers? Does it attract buyers? According to Homelight
In a recent poll of top HomeLight agents from all over the country, 76% said that Improving curb appeal was the best thing homeowners could do to boost a home’s marketability, and another 95% of agents confirmed that putting effort into cleaning and polishing the exterior can bring more attention and a higher value to that home.
Buying a home is an emotional experience. It is, therefore, critically important that a seller sets the proper stage in generating a positive emotional response from a buyer.
Fortune Builders goes into a bit more details HERE that with just six minor adjustments, a seller can make a huge difference in a buyers first impression of the home. From your grass and trees to repainting your front door, the things they talk about can be immensely helpful.
Curb appeal sets expectations. Prospective buyers are more inclined to look inside if they like what they see on the outside. First impressions make a difference when it comes to selling a home.
At first glance, you want your property to have a “wow” factor. At a minimum, it shouldn’t turn off a large majority of buyers. Conversely, the home’s curb appeal should entice buyers to inquire further.
These are great tips for not only sellers but general appeal to a homeowner. Whether you plan on selling or buying, beautiful curb appeal can be extremely rewarding when you first pull into your driveway!
