Spring Cleaning - Outdoors
If there’s one thing you can count on it’s, first impressions matter. Many times, sellers are so focused on the interior of their home they forget that the exterior is what potential buyers see first.
Take a good look on the inside as well as the outside of your home to see what needs to be addressed. A good place to start is with the things on your “honey-to-do- list” that you’ve been putting off for weeks, months or even years! Here’s our list in case yours somehow ended up in the trash…
Replace (if necessary) or power washing your siding.
Clean your gutters.
Paint exterior features including things like the shutters.
Driveway and walkway maintenance.
Incorporating landscaping and planting flowers where necessary.
Pull weeds, add mulch or rocks, pull weeds and get the grass as green as possible.
When it comes to recouping your money, curb appeal will make a world of difference. A standard evaluation is to invest 10 percent of the home’s value on landscaping/the exterior. Some experts say that you can count on curb appeal to increase the overall value of the property anywhere between 5 and 20 percent.
