Tips to selling your home
You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but we all do it, anyway. When it comes to selling your home, you better believe people are going to take the exterior of your home into consideration before buying. Sometimes, how your home looks on the outside will affect whether potential buyers are even interested in seeing the inside. Here are our suggestions for boosting the curb appeal of your Colorado or New Mexico home.
Repair your roof
Buying a home is the biggest investment most of us will make in our lifetime. The exterior of a home, from the foundation, siding, and especially the roof is a huge factor in deciding to buy or not. Replacing a damaged roof is expensive, and many buyers won’t even consider your home if they can see roof damage from the street. Fixing any roofing damage, even if it means spending some money replacing an old roof, will give you a great return on investment. Not fixing your roof, could mean having to lower your asking price significantly.
Repaint and repair your siding
Cracked paint or water spots on our siding is another no-no to potential buyers. If it’s just a matter of adding a fresh coat of paint, you may get lucky, but water damage is a big risk to any buyer. If you see water damage on the outside, chances are there’s more damage on the inside. Water damage spreads quickly, and could mean replacing not only the siding but your interior as well, depending on how long the damage has been allowed to flourish.
Water damage aside, the energy efficiency of your home is another concern to potential buyers. Old, worn, or damaged siding could mean air leaks and poor energy efficiency. Fixing damaged siding before you put your home on the market is a sound investment and will pay off in the end.
Clean your front yard and driveway
If you’ve already fixed major issues with your home, it doesn’t hurt to mow the lawn, trim the hedges, sweep the driveway, and paint your fence to improve your home’s curb appeal and be more inviting to buyers. And remember, the “I just took fresh baked cookies out of the oven” trick is an oldie, but a goodie once those buyers come knocking on your door.
