The realtor called and they have someone who is really interested in your home. They want to see it this afternoon. So you get the house ready, and you clean up the bathroom and kitchen, and you see a few people pull up into your driveway.
These must be the people who are interested in the home. But wait, where are they going? Are these just strangers making a U-turn in my driveway, or did my front yard just scare them off? No, they were your potential buyers.
When you're selling a home, it's true that staging the inside of your home for interested buyers is important. However, first impressions are even more important. That's why you should pay close attention to sprucing up your front yard. You won't have a chance to make another first impression.
Any real estate agent will tell you when you sell a home, curb appeal and landscaping is key; it can attract the eye of a buyer, or send them back to the internet to continue their search. With so many homes available, there are plenty of homes with impressive yards.
Keep your front yard, and your porch neat, clean and tidy. Here are some easy ways to get your front yard up to speed:
1) Edge your flower beds, and your grass. By fixing many little things, you can improve the overall look of your home. 2) Mow your lawn and remove all the leaves. 3) Prune your overgrown shrubs and trees. 4) Use a weed killer like Roundup to kill the weeds growing through the cracks in your driveway. 6) Mulch is inexpensive. If you need to add mulch to your gardens or around trees, do it. It always looks messy when there are an enormous amount of weeds popping up around mulch that looks 10 years old. The color of the new mulch will also revitalize your yard. 8) Put a $50 bag of fertilizer on your yard. Scott's with weed and crabgrass control comes highly recommended. It won't take long to turn a healthy green color.
Don't leave your yard looking disorderly. Never assume that even if you're selling your house at a bargain price, that the new owners will want to tackle the task.
When the time comes to sell your home, you should always start with your front yard, and work your way in. As one realtor told me, "When your front yard catches their eye, they're always intrigued by what's inside." Get them in the door to see what else you have to offer in amentities.
