Do you want to sell your home?
The first step is, of course, the list your home with a reputable real estate agent and have it exposed to as many potential buyers as possible.
When buyers first hear about your home – through their agent or through some marketing your agent has done – they often will drive by the area. When they drive by, they’re looking at the neighborhood and making sure it feels like some place they’d like to live. If they like it, they’ll make an appointment to come see it. If there’s anything they don’t like, they won’t make an appointment and you’ve lost an opportunity to get that buyer in to see the home.
It’s very important that your home’s first impression is a great one. Paying attention to the details that make up your home’s curb appeal will make a big difference in how many buyers will see the home. Here’s what you need to know.
