Maximizing the "Curb Appeal"

When it comes to real estate, you should use any edge you can get to assist in selling your home. From simple outdoor cleanup items to quick indoor adjustments, the following tips can improve your chances for swift home sale.

  • Repaint the front door and trim. Repaint the rest of the house, if needed.
  • Move all garbage cans, extra building materials & gardening supplies, etc. that are in the yard into the garage or storage shed.
  • Check gutters and/or roof for dry rot and leaks.
  • Prune bushes and leaves. Remove any dead shrubs and trees.
  • Weed and maintain all planted areas.
  • Clean the patio, porch or decks of all small items, such as small planters, flower pots, charcoal, barbecues, toys, etc. Sweep all areas and walkways.
  • Check all screens and windows. Repair or replace if appropriate.
  • Test all fences, gates and latches. Repair or replace any weakened areas.
  • Clean the swimming pool, Jacuzzi or hot tub.
  • Check external structures, patio cover, gazebo, and sheds. Repair, paint or clean.
  • Use driveway cleaner to remove oil stains from the driveway or garage floor.
  • Replace worn, badly stained or personalized doormats.
