Hi, I am David Lupberger with servicemagic.com. In this video, we are going to talk about some simple steps that you can follow to really increase the curve appeal of your home. Now, these are simple things, but they are the things that most of us don’t just think about. Let’s start when people are walking up to home. What’s the landscaping look like? Have the bushes been trimmed, are there weeds in the garden, are there any dead flowers? In a matter of an hour or two you can clean this up, so that really it’s a very fresh clean appearance as people walk up your walk way.
As a visitor comes to your front door, ask yourself, what are they seeing? In this case, I see some unfinished paints, some peeling paints, not just here but even here on the porch railing. Again, this simple fix, some sanding and painting and this will be nice fresh and clean. If I look at the patio itself, you will see there are still some dead leaves and even some plants that are growing into the patio, so I want to take those off. You are going to see again see some pealing paint over there on the railings. I am looking now at some of this porch furniture, and here is some pealing fabric, and again I don’t think about it but it is leaving an impression on a potential visitor.
As I am standing at the door, is there dust that I could clean so that door is clean. So not only that there is a dust on the door but I am looking at reef and you can see there is a bird’s nest on the front door. It is a nice feature but not a very good feature when you are trying to sell your home.
I am bringing this up also because imagine if you are trying to sell your home, and a potential buyers comes to your home for the first time. And as the realtor comes to your front doors and spends 30 to 45 seconds to get the lock back open, and that potential buyer is standing at your porch and looking at each one of these things and asking themselves, has this home been taking care off. So one of the things you should also look at is are the screens good, there is no torrent screens, are the windows clean, are there any surfaces where dust is remaining.
Those are the simple things that you can take care of, so that not only when a potential buyer, but when visitors come and stand in your porch its welcoming, it’s fresh and it’s clean. These are just some simple things you can do to vitally increase the look at you home.
