Staging your Curb Appeal to Sell your Home

Sellers can often underestimate the impact of curb appeal when they are preparing their Shelburne home for the MLS real estate market. The updating and beautifying of the outside of a home is often one of the fastest and most cost effective ways to move a property. These attentions to detail can also play a large part in getting a quick sale and retaining your original asking price.

One of the first things that sellers need to realize is that curb appeal is what gets buyers through the door to experience the interior charm of your home. If a property looks unwelcoming from the road, then it is unlikely that a buyer will consider it any further. This can create an obstacle for sale, and can also lead to prolonged negotiations with buyers who do show an interest.

Outside repairs are often more cosmetic in nature, and this allows them to be taken care of swiftly and without great investment. Factors which are as simple as having a tended garden or a clean and maintained walkway may be enough to entice buyers to take a closer look. Even a fresh coat of paint around the windows and doors can change an initial perception enough to get someone in the door.

Sellers may also want to enlist the help of a real estate agent with knowledge of Shelburne Ontario to look at other properties which are comparable to their own. This accomplishes two main things. The first is that the seller can get a sense of what other owners are doing to enhance curb appeal and get a house to move. The other aspect is that it allows the seller to see what homes are on the real estate market in an objective manner. This can then translate over to how they see their own property, and the scrutiny will often uncover points that may have been unobserved by the seller but are quite prominent to buyers. In this way, viewing a home with new eyes can also allow it to be updated for more universal appeal.
