Follow the three p’s on curb appeal to prepare your home for sale.

You've likely heard we're in a hot seller's market right now. Even though conditions favor sellers, you're making a huge mistake if you're not improving your curb appeal before you list your home.

Most buyers are searching for homes online first and then driving by them before they even decide if they want to go inside. If they don't like the outside of the home, they're likely not going to want to see the inside. To prepare your home for these buyers, remember the three p’s for outdoor home preparation:

1. Pressure wash. Wash the area where the buyer is likely to park and all the way to the front door to make sure it's sparkling clean.

"If buyers don't like the outside of the home, they're likely not going to want to see the inside."

2. Paint. Put a new coat on if it fits in your budget and the exterior is older or you feel the house needs an update. If not, at least touch up scratches and scuffs. Paint in neutral colors, and give your front door a pop of color.

3. Plant some flowers. Plant shrubs or flowers along the walkway to the front door to give your buyers a pleasant sensory experience. I always recommend adding honeysuckle because it looks and smells good. You can also add planters to either side of the front door.

Everyone’s situation is unique, so if you have questions about this process or there’s anything else I can help you with, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love to assist you.
