slides: 8 Ways to Make Your Home More Attractive to Buyers
Thursday, January 31, 2013
Tip 2: Exterior
The space between your curb and your home can send a bad message, so do everything you can to make that space look good. Prune back weeds or grass growing in the cracks and crevices of your curbs and sidewalks. Concrete curbs (sidewalks, driveways, etc.) that are badly cracked or broken should be replaced. You'll be amazed at how other things in your yard start taking on a much more attractive look.
Tip 7: Interior
Get Rid of That Clutter
Make sure to keep clutter to a minimum - if rooms are too crowded with your stuff, they may look smaller, and prospective buyers won't be able to picture them with their things in there. Consider investing in short-term storage for all that extra stuff.
Tip 8: Interior
On That Note, Cleanliness Counts
Since you never know when a prospective buyer might come by, it's important to keep your house clean the interior and the exterior. That includes the gutters, the siding, the floors, the windows, the walls, etc. And since no one likes a bad smell, keep your house smelling fresh. It will pay off in the long run!
