Staging Your Home To Sell: Curb Appeal

Staging Your Home To Sell is so important. Your home must look its best both inside and outside. Buyers form their first impression when they pull up in front of your home. How your home looks from the exterior – can increase your home’s sales value up to 17%, a Texas Tech University study found. Landscaped homes have a sales price advantage ranging from 5.5% to 12.7%, according to research by Alex Niemiera, a horticulturist at Virginia Tech.

That would mean an extra $16,500 to $38,100 in value on a $300,000 home. Professional landscaping, however, can cost a lot.

Here are some DIY improvements you can make on a budget:

  • Plant blooming flowers and fresh greenery.
  • Mow the grass.
  • Reseed bare patches of lawn and add fresh sod, as needed.
  • Wash the windows.
  • Power wash siding and walkways.
  • Repaint or stain porches and stairs, as needed.
  • Make sure house numbers are easy to see, visible and are pretty.
  • Paint the front door I needed.

So make sure important outdoor features such as the front door, porch, sidewalks and paths are well lit. (If not, install new fixtures or lighting.)

Even basic upgrades – like laying fresh mulch, changing porch lights or installing a new mailbox – can help in Staging Your Home To Sell so a buyer falls in love at first sight!
