D.W. Fish Real Estate | Vernon CT Real Estate


When prospective homebuyers see your residence, are they impressed or disappointed? A homebuyer's first impression might depend on your house's curb appeal – something that can make or break a home sale. For home sellers, ensuring your home is attractive to homebuyers is paramount. Thus, it is essential for home sellers to spend some time avoiding these common curb appeal mistakes: 1. Keeping Clutter on Your Front Lawn Lawn ornaments like a bright pink flamingo sculpture or large pinwheels may help your home's front lawn make a bold statement. At the same time, however, they can clutter up your front lawn and may be an eyesore for prospective homebuyers. When it comes to clutter, you'll want to do whatever it takes to eliminate it from your front lawn entirely. By doing so, homebuyers will be able to focus on your home's outstanding exterior and its other stunning features. Remember, your goal as a home seller is to keep your residence as neat and clean as possible and allow your home to make a positive first impression on homebuyers. And if you devote time and resources to remove clutter from your front lawn, you'll be able to showcase the size and beauty of your front lawn day after day. 2. Ignoring Peeling Paint on Your Home's Exterior Adding a fresh coat of paint to your home's exterior is never a bad idea, particularly for home sellers who notice peeling paint. Typically, you can touch up areas where peeling paint is present and eliminate such problems instantly. If your home needs an extensive paint job, you may be better off hiring a professional home painter as well. This home renovation expert will help you take the guesswork out of repainting your home's exterior and work toward transforming a drab exterior into a fabulous one. 3. Failing to Replace Outdated Light Fixtures You know the light in your driveway that constantly flickers at night? Well, now may be a great time to replace it, especially if you're a home seller who wants to boost his or her house's curb appeal. Outdated light fixtures will do more harm than good for your home's curb appeal. But if you install new light fixtures, you'll be better equipped to enhance your home's curb appeal at night. As a home seller, you'll want to ensure homebuyers can view the beauty of your residence during the day and evening. Meanwhile, installing new light fixtures enables you to brighten up your home's exterior and improve your house's chances of making a great first impression on homebuyers. Curb appeal represents an important factor for home sellers, and if you ever feel unsure about how to improve your house's curb appeal, hiring a real estate agent usually is a wonderful idea. A real estate agent possesses industry experience and know-how and can help you explore innovative ways to improve your home's curb appeal. And ultimately, this professional can empower you with the insights and resources you need to accelerate the home selling process. Enhance your residence's curb appeal, and you may be able to reap the benefits of a fast home sale.
