Let’s face it, first impressions matter. We care about how we dress for a job interview, and we spend extra time in front of the mirror before a first date. When it comes to selling a home, first impressions matter too.
“Curb Appeal”- buyers form their first impression of a home while scanning through MLS listing photographs online or even sitting inside the car just beyond the curb during that important initial drive-by. Many times curb appeal will determine whether or not potential buyers will go forward with an actual walk through showing.
To get that buyer in the front door so they can see the updated kitchen and bathrooms, and see that beautiful open concept floor plan with tons of natural light through the windows, the home’s curb appeal may need to be addressed as well. Refreshing the building exterior paint and sprucing up flower beds with new mulch and plantings is important, but for low cost and high return, power cleaning exterior features can’t be beat.
Think about cleaning the exterior concrete or paver driveway, sidewalks, pool deck and patios. Walking to the front entry on a clean path is sure to make the buyer feel welcome. Today a lot of property listings use drone photography for dramatic aerial views of the home and surrounding property, a sparkling clean roof will stand out from other homes in these photographs.
Cleaning fences and wood decks adds a feeling that this home is well maintained and cared for. If the home has a pool enclosure this too should be freshened. You will be amazed how a clean screen enclosure brightens up the pool area.
