How to Get Your House Ready for Sale

How to Get Your House Ready for Sale

Learn how to make a great first impression with your home’s exterior.

Lately, I've received a number of inquiries from homeowners asking, "How can I get my house ready for sale?" Today, I'd like to share some insights, particularly focusing on boosting your home's curb appeal. Curb appeal essentially gets the first impression buyers have as they drive up to your property. It's important because it sets the tone for their entire visit. With that in mind, here are three things you can do to upgrade your curb appeal: 


1. Landscaping. An immaculately maintained lawn signals to prospective buyers that you take pride in your home and maintain it well. This includes ensuring the grass is lush, bushes are neatly trimmed, and adding fresh, rich-looking mulch to enhance the overall appearance.


2. Front door. As potential buyers walk up to your house, often they spend a moment waiting at the door as agents access the lockbox. This pause allows them to scrutinize the entrance. A freshly painted front door, clean and clear pathways, and uncluttered banisters make a world of difference. It's all about creating an inviting path that leads them into a home that feels welcoming from the outset.


3. Power wash. Just as you might detail your car before selling it, power washing your house can significantly freshen up its appearance. Make sure to also inspect and possibly repair and repaint fascia boards and other external features. These efforts demonstrate meticulous care and upkeep, which can be incredibly reassuring to buyers.
