The Importance of Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is the attractiveness of your home's exterior when viewed from the street. Studies show that a majority of buyers will not get out their car if they do not find your home's curb appeal visually attractive–that is, if they visit your property at all. With more and more people shopping for homes online, potential buyers could be turned off from viewing your property, just based on the listing photo alone. Addressing your home's curb appeal is a critical component in marketing and selling your home.

Why is curb appeal so important in selling your home? It forms potential buyers’ first impressions of your home. Curb appeal sets the tone for your entire home. Buyers associate the condition of the exterior and landscape with the condition of the interior. Your home's curb appeal must invite buyers to view the rest of the property. In a buyer's market, curb appeal can mean the difference between a home that sells quickly for the asking price and a home that sells after months of sitting on the market for below the asking price.

Curb Appeal, The First Impression Counts!

Selling a home can be very rewarding (and profitable) if the right steps are taken to make sure that the home for sale shows its best to potential buyers, or as Sandra and I like to say, Parade Ready. When a home owner is thinking about selling their house, extra care and focus should be directed towards the property's curb appeal. Making sure that a house looks great as soon as the prospective buyer pulls up to it can make a difference of thousands of dollars in your pocket.

Check out the useful infographic below for improving your home's curb appeal.
