Preparing Your Midlothian TX Home For Sale - Curb Appeal

 

Preparing Your Home For Sale: The Exterior  

Never underestimate the importance of curb appeal. An attractive, well-maintained home will generally sell faster and for a higher price than a similar home that’s outdated.

Let’s look at your home’s exterior objectively and see what repairs and updates it needs to sell for top dollar.

  • Keep the lawn mowed and shrubs trimmed.
  • Remove dead tree limbs and other yard debris.
  • Plant fresh shrubs and flowers.
  • Arrange outdoor items neatly and put away lawn equipment.
  • Check siding, trim and doors – especially the front door – for dirt and peeling paint.
  • Check your fence.
  • Check loose or damaged roof shingles or flashing.
  • Clean and repair broken windows or screens.
  • Clean gutters and downspouts.
  • Wash the driveway and sidewalk.
  • Clean and neatly arrange the garage or shed.
  • Make sure the gas grill is clean.
  • Make sure the entry light and doorbell work.

If you find that a repair is needed on anything listed, fix the entire defect so it will not cause a distraction.

Hi Lisa Von Domek The way I work is that I give an MLS feed to my potential buyers. I ask them to drive by the houses they are interested in. If the curb appeal isn't there, they will NEVER see the inside.

It's beyond me that this isn't more obvious to sellers!

Absolutely Bill Roberts the client is the only one that really knows if the curb appeal works and if the neighborhood appeals to them too!
