So if your Flower Mound house is for sale – you better hope it looks good! But how do you look at your home with the eyes of a buyer? Here are 5 tips for The Jeff Brand Team on how to improve your home’s curb appeal and get it sold fast:
Look at the Front Door with Fresh Eyes
Chances are you walk in and out of your front door often without actually looking at your front door. Start by giving it a good clean with soap and water, and even give it a fresh coat of paint if needed. While you don’t want to spend a lot, front door replacement does also give you a decent return on investment if you choose to go that route.
Roof Condition Matters
Buyers will care about the condition of your roof and that condition will affect your sale price. If your roof is nearing the end of its usable life, then it may be wise to go ahead and get it replaced, knowing you can sell your home for more with a new roof.
Give Your Landscaping a Little TLC
A buyer will see your home’s landscaping before they see your home’s interior, so make a good first impression! Grass should be free of bare patches and neatly cut at all times. A fresh layer of mulch is a must in all flowerbeds. Lastly, pull overgrown vegetation, and even if you need to spend a little on fresh flowers to spruce up the beds, it’s money well spent.
Wash Away the Grime
You’ll be amazed at the difference a window cleaning can do to make your home sparkle! Don’t neglect to get your windows cleaned and the exterior of your home – particularly areas where bugs and cobwebs can live – power washed to improve curb appeal.
Repair the Driveway
Again, you probably don’t look at your driveway much, but a buyer will. If it has weeds growing in cracks, pull them. If there are cracks in the concrete, then do your best to have those repaired and cleaned up. Even a good power washing will make your property look well maintained and improve Flower Mound curb appeal.
