Before You Sell Your House Spruce Up The Outside

If you want home buyers to see the inside of your house you need curb appeal. This means the exterior of your home needs to be in good condition.

Roof, Windows and Siding: Paint and repair gutters. Repair loose shingles and flashing in roof, especially when visible from the ground.  Paint window sashes, trim and shutters.  Replace cracked window panes, and wash entire window.  Clean and paint siding as needed.  Painting it a neutral color is the best color for aluminum, wood or synthetic siding.

Lawn & YardA well kept lawn implies a well maintained home.  Therefore, cut your lawn weekly while showing your home. Rake leaves and sweep sidewalk on weekends when house is to be shown. Remove dead limbs and debris from shrubs and trees.

You can spruce up landscaping with potted flowers and a new mail box. Repair fences and touch-up with paint or stain. Finally, store your lawn equipment, toys and other outdoor items in your shed. 

Front Entrance:  Paint, clean or stain the front door.  Remove old screens if they don’t fit or operate properly and buy a new welcome mat. Make sure entry light and doorbell are in working order.

Replace missing house numbers and make sure the house number is visible from the street.
