Spending quite of few of my weekends this spring looking at homes with some first-time home buyers and we think we found what I call “a diamond in the rough.”
It is a great buy, had more room than we thought, and in a wonderful location for my buyers! Why did it take us so long to find it? Curb Appeal!!
Don’t be lulled into the thought that buyers will look at only the facts. Buyers, especially first time buyers,are looking online and have so many listings to sort through. The unappealing first glance can cause them to jump to the next choice.
When looking at the picture of the front of the house, nothing really appealed to them to take a closer look. Not until they eliminated the more appealing homes, did we take a second look (then I started showing them price, DOM, sq/ ft ect….)
And I can’t tell you how many homes that looked great online, but when we drove up we just kept on driving. So it works both ways.
Don’t Deceive the Public With Doctored Pictures: if they can’t keep the property inviting and clean then don’t candy coat the listing.
