Appeal goes further than the curb

Real Estate Agent with Remax Realty Associates

We've all heard how important curb appeal is to a buyer, however, that's not the whole story.  Some times the curb appeal can be fabulous yet as soon as you enter the front door it's all over but the race to get back to the car and on to the next home.

Having a pleasing entry is so important for a good first impression.  With a large, open space leading to several rooms, the eye doesn't know where to rest which creates a feeling of unease. 

If the home doesn't have a foyer, one can create the illusion of a foyer with pieces of furniture, plants, etc.  This creates a sense of order with a place to "land"  before entering further into the home to see what it has to offer.

Hi Bobbie,

I couldn't agree more! Curb appeal is clearly very important. As the old saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression. However, once you get past the front door, a sense of order and comfort are equally important.  Don't you just hate that race back to the car!!!

Love the hat by the way!

First impressions are lasting ones in any room. Sellers need to take the time to get the whole house ready.  This goes to the realtor showing them also.

Thanks, Jody.  It certainly is a team effort with the Realtor being the ringmaster minus the whip and chair - megaphone optional.
