Curb Appeal - Maximize Your Home Value

 

 

Is your home ready for its closeup?  The "Fifteen Seconds of Fame" rule certainly applies to selling your home since nearly 50% of prospective buyers drive by their favorite properties BEFORE they schedule an appointment to tour the home with their real estate agent.

Yes, that's right.  After locating your home on the Internet and deciding it is in the right price range and the right neighborhood many buyers will check it out from the curb.  Sellers, you can either win them here or lose them.  Over the years, we've had many buyers eliminate a home from our show list based solely on curb appeal.

Don't let the curb appeal of your home cost you showings and even a sale.  Every home's curb appeal can be improved no matter the style or age of the property.  We can help you maximize the curb appeal of your home before you put it on the market.

I believe there is no such thing as to much preaching about curb appeal to Sellers Norma Toering Broker for Palos Verdes and Beach Cities yet it seems so few Sellers "get it".

Norma, it's both you home's curb appeal and the appeal of what's nearby.  People want to see what the neighbors look like, whether or not there is something ugly across the street, and what the traffic is like.  I'm starting to think it's not a bad idea to offer to mow a neighbor's shaggy lawn!

Bob - People do judge a home by its "cover" and a home's curb appeal is the beginning of that ever-so-important first impression.

Pat - True, your neighbor does have an impact on the appeal (and value) of your home.  I've had sellers offer tenants a bonus if they will put toys in the garage and not leave trash cans on the curb for days.  :)
