Winter Home Sales and Curb Appeal

By Michelle Keaton-Barrow:

If you are placing your home on the market this winter, make sure your curb appeal is up to par. Although there may not be a lot of greenery showing or flowers blooming, it’s still beneficial. If you live in a moderate climate, removing weeds and fallen leaves will help, as well as trimming bushes and grass. Adding mulch or gravel to your landscape will also make the yard look neater. If you live in a colder climate, shoveling snow and keeping the walkway clear will make it safer and easier to access for anyone viewing your home.

Make sure your garage is neat, clean and organized. Things that you have grown used to stepping around may turn off a home buyer. Tools and equipment organized with hooks, shelves, along with neatly stacked storage boxes will actually make the garage look larger.

Your front door may benefit from a new coat of paint, the doormat may need to be replaced and a close inspection of your overall porch may show small repairs that could use some attention. Gutters, downspouts, windows and doors should also get a once over. Look closely at the shingles on your roof (are any in need of replacing?), vinyl or wood siding or bricks (could these use washing also?)

The outside of your home is a first impression. It should be the welcome sign that invites any possible buyer to come on in and have a look at the rest of your home.
