Curb Appeal

Ahhh Spring, with the blossoming cherry trees and daffodils popping up, it makes now a great time of year to work on one's curb appeal.  After all, we don't want potential buyers cruising by your listing without taking a peek because of a poor first impression!  Set the tone for what's to come...it's like a marvelous path of warm cookies leading to the perfect home.

As real estate pros, you need to let your circles know about new tips, tricks and do-it-yourself ideas to help your sellers and past clients in sprucing up their own curb appeal.  Study up and dip into your past listings that really aced this crucial part of selling a home.

A few blog title ideas to get you started:   

How to Improve Your Curb Appeal
10 Ways to Improve Your Home's Curb Appeal
The Importance of Curb Appeal When Selling Your Home
The First Impression - Curb Appeal
Simple and Quick Curb Appeal Fixes
10 Ways to Boost Your Curb Appeal
Increase Your Home's Curb Appeal

As always, make it your own and get hyperlocal by adding your city or neighborhood to the title.  Share your post in your newsletter, social outlets and on all your upcoming listing appointments.

Interesting post. Who exactly is Inspiration Station?

Funny thing is an author from Nolo found me on hear last year and published a book about selling your home. That was then. Last night she emailed me letting me know that a large company was interested in what Realtors had to say about landscaping and curb appeal and how it can be quantified to increase a homes value. Love my AR.

I always look forward to this time of year to decorate the outside.  Sometimes my ideas are bigger than my time.  Hopefully I will start sooner this year.

I think for my friends in the northeast, they're looking forward to the blossoming trees.  Even here in SoCal we're starting to see some new colors, great ideas for some blogging inspiration here.

This is the first time I have checked out inspiration station, and it is wonderful that Active Rain provides this "help corner"!  So many times I am ready to write my next blog, article, post, and get hit by writers' block.  Right here is where I will go first from now on to get my virtual pen moving again!

Well, strangely, I have posted to this group, but NEVER knew about the words that could spark new blogposts (oops!)

I loved Jean Glass, PLLC comment and she's so right! 

Thank you....

Curb appeal is so important.  YOu can't get a buyer thru the front door if they do not like the way it looks from the outside..

LENDERS start questing why these lots have no landscape and whether there is a lot of renters out in the same neighborhood.  You no longer can tell. Hillsborugh, CA is one of the most affluent neighborhood in CA. This year they saved 49% H2O consumption making the curb appeal look very different than before....

Spring is the best time to show homes. Curb appeal is at its best. Flowers, greenery everywhere.  There is nothing great if there are washer, drier, frig on front driveway....trash every where when you are next door trying to sell.
