Well, curb appeal might be the missing ingredient in your quest to sell your house in Charlotte. Curb appeal is just what it sounds like, it’s the perspective that prospective buyers get when driving by your house or viewing it from the curb.
And just like first impressions, curb appeal is critical for garnering buyer attention and selling quickly for top dollar.
So, is YOUR curb appealing?
At Bright Haven Properties, we’ve been helping people sell their homes for quite some time in Charlotte, and here are some of the most common mistakes that Charlotte homeowners make when it comes to curb appeal.
Car In The Driveway
Having a car in the driveway signals that someone is home, this makes it harder to attract potential buyers who may be driving by. Most buyers prefer some privacy while perusing a property. It also makes it difficult for the prospective buyer to imagine it as being THEIR home since someone else’s car is in the driveway.
Bad Paint Job
Obviously, a fresh coat of paint is a high priority to help make a good first impression. To buyers, peeling paint feels like a sign that the home hasn’t been taken care of properly. Give the outside and inside of your house a fresh coat of paints. Clean walls will have a good impact on people’s first impression of the home. It’s pretty inexpensive to repaint your home and should be one of the first things you should tackle.
Poorly Kept Lawn
What potential buyers see from outside the home is just as important as what they see inside. The lawn is one of the keys to creating great curb appeal. A well-kept yard indicates that a property has been well-cared for and it also increases the overall desirability of the home. You do not need to rework your entire yard, but a little bit of landscaping will freshen up your yard.
