If you’re like many people selling a home in Grand Junction, you’re not exactly sure what you should do to the exterior of your house before you put it on the market.
Now that the weather is warming up a bit, you can dedicate a little time to improving your curb appeal–and that can pay off in a big way through more showings, a better impression with more buyers, and a faster sale.
So what should you do?
Clean Up Your Landscape
You don’t have to invest a lot of money in landscaping if you’re putting your home on the market, but time spent in your front yard can really pay off in increased traffic for showings.
Make sure you:
- Keep the lawn well-groomed
- Fill in bare patches of grass
- Clean up the edging
- Prune your trees and shrubs
- Pull weeds
- Put in fresh mulch
- Wrap up and put away your garden hose
Now’s also a great time to put in some spring blooms.
Patch Concrete and Repair Fences
If you have pits or cracks in your driveway, or broken, worn or bare spots on your fence, fix them up to ensure buyers can see that you’ve taken care of routine maintenance.
Make Sure Your Porch and Front Door Welcome Buyers
Painting your front door–or in some cases, replacing it–can really boost your curb appeal. (Don’t replace it without talking to your Realtor(R) first, though; it may not be necessary.)
If there’s enough room on your porch for a potted plant or some beautiful flowers, they’ll make a fantastic touch.
