Buyers First Impressions!

Before listing your home for sale, consider one home renovation project at a time.  Start with the exterior then work your way into each room of the home.

To significantly increase your home curb appeal--repaint the exterior trim, especially if it's flaking and looks shabby.  Pressure wash the driveway, sidewalk and home brightens up the exterior.  A clean exterior makes the home stand out visually.

Landscaping is extremely important for curb appeal.  Add fresh mulch and flowers enhances the curb appeal and adds a finishing touch to your yard. 

Bare area in the grass can be spray painted with natural green grass paint for a quick fix.  Cut back over grown bushes and tree limbs.  Pick up debris, leaves and sticks.

Repaint the front door. Add new lights and/or fixtures.  Add a new welcome mat to the entrance and color pot with flowers.  Buyers buy on emotions.  Create a welcome atmoshere means the difference between a sale or longer days on market which will lead to a lower price.

Although this is a time-consuming task, it's also one that can make prospective buyers fall in love with your property at first sight.
