Kerb appeal

The importance of kerb appeal… 

 

Selling your property is competitive especially if there are similar properties for sale on your road or in neighboring roads. What can you do to put your property above the rest? Having a good ‘kerb appeal’ is very important. Buyers will drive around an area before deciding if they want to view a property there. If there are two properties on the road but they only have time to view one you want to make sure your property is chosen.

Maximise your chances of getting buyers through your door by making the outside of your property presentable and welcoming. Take a look at the outside of your property and imagine what potential buyers would pick up on. You may overlook small maintenance jobs but these small factors could be the difference between your property and the one down the road that your viewer offers on.

Keep your front garden tidy and maintained. Potted plants can add a touch of welcoming colour. Could your front door benefit from a clean or a fresh coat of paint? Is the paintwork on the windows flaking?  Is the garden fence leaning to one side? Are the fascias and soffits looking dirty? Try to hide bins away out of view…
