Take a Close Look at Your Entry
Summertime is a busy time in real estate in Colorado. The flowers are blooming and the lawns are green and lush. With all that growing, comes lots of insects.
Many of us are spoiled by our garage door openers and never enter our home through the front door. If your house is on the market, all the potential buyers are entering through your front door. Make sure to go out your front door and turn around and look closely. Have the spiders created cobwebs around your windows and doors?
I was showing a home the other day with an entry way covered in cobwebs and dirt. The home was lovely inside, but the first impression was not great.
We only get one chance to make a GREAT first impression. Make sure your entry way is clean as a whistle and inviting. Take down the “No Soliciting” signs and roll out the welcome mat. In fact, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to replace the welcome mat. You can find a bright, inviting welcome mat for under $20.00.
If you have cobwebs and dirt in your entry way, get the garden hose and wash everything down. The buyer’s will have a much better impression of your home if the entry is spic and span and friendly.
