When it comes to selling your home, we’ve all heard the unique tips and tricks that many people swear by. Baking bread before a walk-through to make the property smell like home is a popular one, followed by various staging techniques that create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
As helpful as that might be, there still is simply no substitute for investing in curb appeal. After all, long before they can smell your delicious bread baking, your property offers them a visual welcome.
This is an opportunity you want to make the most of!
Painting and Maintenance Strategies to Increase Your Home’s Marketability
1. The Big One: Exterior Painting
Whether it involves localized touch-ups or a completely updated look, fresh exterior paint offers visual vitality to your home and a lot of tremendous, practical value.
2. Exterior Maintenance and Repairs
Dry rot, damaged siding, or a deck that has seen better days all are points that the prospective buyer will notice. Investing in repairs, staining, and painting (as needed) is important.
Even a simple cleanup of your yard and landscaping around your home can make a tremendous difference. How much you want to invest in the process is up to you, but something is certainly better than nothing.
4. How About an Accent Door?
Adding a fresh, bright pop of color to your home’s entrance is not only stylish, but also just plain fun. You can find some great examples like the one below here on Houzz.com.
5. Pressure Washing
Professional pressure washing can rinse away mold, mildew, and dirt that are all working together to create a dingy appearance. Fresh surfaces look fantastic, and they help existing coatings of paint and stain last longer.
