What should I do to get my house ready to sell? Part One –The Exterior

Very few homes are in “ready to sell” or “move in” condition.  The fact is, if you live in it, there are going to be little things that you are okay with but maybe a prospective would be less than accepting.

A major consideration is the exterior of your home.  You only get about ten seconds to impress.

You either grab the prospects attention right away or it becomes an uphill battle once inside your house.  Take a look at the paint.  The lawn and flower beds need to be green and weed free.  The front door needs to be clean and inviting.  It should be noted the condition of your neighbor’s home will influence prospects as well.

Another thing – clutter.  I am not referring to the clutter in your home.  I am talking about driveway clutter.

Look for alternative parking so you do not have the driveway filled with cars and cars on the street as well. And driveway stains…pressure wash it and the sidewalk out front.

If your sprinkler system leaves rust deposits (you know the brownish, orange looking stains), get rid of them from the walk ways and the side of the house.

Selling your home is all about being remembered...standing out.

Of course, being memorable can be good or bad. You want to be remembered because your curb appeal was so nice. You want to be remembered because your home showed so well.

You want to be remembered because of something positive otherwise getting your price may be quite a climb!

When you are ready to sell your Viera, Rockledge or Suntree home, I would appreciate the chance to market your home.
