Curb appeal. We hear the phrase a lot in today’s HGTV world. While everyone wants their home to have loads of curb appeal, home sellers need it more than most. Here’s why you need curb appeal when selling a home, plus the top 10 tasks to undertake to boost curb appeal when selling your home.
Curb Appeal When Selling Your Home: Why You Need It
In a nutshell, your home’s curb appeal reflects on the entire house. Buyers equate your home’s appearance to how you’ve maintained it overall. If your home’s exterior appears well cared for and loved, potential buyers will know that quite likely, the entire house has been well maintained under your ownership. Even before entering a home, buyers can easily be turned off by a sad looking mailbox or a front door with peeling paint. These things can be major red flags for househunters and cause them to look at the house with an extra critical eye.
Attractive curb appeal helps your home stand out from the others.
In today’s digital world, sellers need all the help they can get to make their homes stick out in the minds of potential buyers. This is especially important with online househunters or those looking touring 10 houses in a single outing. Househunters are more likely to recall the “townhouse with the red front door” or “the house with the fabulous hydrangeas” over homes don’t have that visual punch.
