Curb Appeal & Why You Need It!

Curb Appeal” is a term professionals in the Staging industry use to describe the level of attractiveness your property exhibits by observing it from the street.   If you are lacking in Curb Appeal then your property may need some work before you list it!

Why is Curb Appeal important? Curb Appeal is important because it gets buyers through the door and makes a great first impression.  If buyers show up at a property where the exterior has clearly not been maintained and is unattractive, they get a preconception that the house has not been maintained on the inside either.  Their expectations of the home significantly drop. You want to send the right message to potential home buyers so they get the best first impression of your property

Most potential buyers drive by a home after viewing it on the internet first. If they see a poorly maintained exterior and an over-grown lawn or garden, they might not come back to visit the inside. Another circumstance is when you can’t see the house behind the massive trees and bushes blocking the wonderful view of your beautiful home.  When greenery is concealing your house you probably need to do some trimming to make sure the property and house number are viewable. There is nothing more frustrating for potential buyers than not being able to find the right house because they can’t see the house number.

  • Power wash the exterior if it just needs a good cleaning
