Curb Appeal - 10 Tips!

Curb Appeal (1).png

The first impression of a home from the street is what motivates you to look further.

Tips to spruce up your curb appeal:

1. Grab a friend. Make a list of work for the exterior. Ex. torn screen, cobwebs, chipped paint. A 2nd set of eyes helps.
2. Mount house numbers in an area of visibility that match the style of your home.
3. Look Up. Repair or replace the roof to remove any major expense for buyers.
4. Walk Around the house. Check out rain gutters, shutters, foundation footings, deck boards, plant beds. Remove, repair or refresh.
5. Stuff. Bikes, yard equipment? Put in garage or stack in corner. Try to put things out of site.
6. Clean. Rent a pressure washer. Wash everything, deck, siding, driveway, walkways. 
7. Lighting. Replace old/outdated lighting fixtures on front door/porch.
8. Paint. If you are not going to paint the entire exterior, refresh doors-trim-shutters. Touch up where needed.
9. Landscape. Trim along drive/walkways, install edging, trim plants, mulch beds, use potted plants, repair driveway, patio or sidewalk cracks, replace missing bricks.
10. Plant. Add color to flowerbeds. Add potted greenery or flower pots to front door area.

Make buyers want to view the interior of your home!

Make a Grand Entrance!

make_a_grand_entrance_progers.png

The entrance to your home matters.

In takes only a few moments for a buyer to determine if they are interested in your home. Making your entry way inviting from exterior to interior will set the stage for the buyer experience. 

Feng Shui suggests the use of color and elements to support the direction of your front door. Think Wood, metal, clay plant pots, plants, perhaps a fountain and brightly colored or dark front door, and chic lighting.

When previewing homes I look at homes as my buyers would. How does it look now, what improvements could be made? Where does that figure into the value and who is the right buyer for each type of home?

Investing in the very first impression that your property makes from the front yard to your entrance is key to your homes value, desirability and successful sale. Make it a wow moment!

Smart Homes & Smart Homeowners

smarthomes_pattyrogers.png

By 2020, the global home automation market will be worth over $121.73 billion.* From (The Clapper) of yesterday to today’s remote monitoring features, smartphone hub systems can manage your home through your smartphone or tablet. 

Most people are interested but don’t ask about home technology when viewing a home. Smart home tools can be used for safety (locks, security, monitoring), privacy (lights) and energy usage (thermostats) to drive down costs. Cameras are an added benefit, but not necessary and some use  technology for doorbells, smart appliances, voice control and let’s not forget about music.

Adding smart technology features may increase the interest-in and the value of your home. A move-in ready home should have smart technology, don’t be afraid to ask about it!
