Dorothy’s Best Tips to Prepare Your Property for a Quicker Sale

A large percentage of home buyers decide whether or not to look inside a house or take it seriously based on its curb appeal, the view they see when they drive by or arrive for a showing. You can help make sure they want to come inside your house by investing some time or money on its exterior appearance. 

Most buyers cannot visualize changes, and often won’t take a second look at a house if the first look doesn’t appeal to them. Home buyers who can visualize changes, and are prepared to make them, expect you to reduce the price of the house to compensate for the work they plan to do.  Tackle clean up and repair chores first, then put some time into projects that make the grounds more attractive.

  • Kill mold and mildew on the house, sidewalks, roof, or driveway.
  • Clean windows and gutters.
  • Pressure wash dirty siding and dingy decks.
  • Edge sidewalks and remove vegetation growing between concrete or bricks.
  • Mow the lawn. Get rid of the weeds.
  • Rake and dispose of leaves, even if your lot is wooded.
  • Trim low hanging tree limbs and those near or touching the home’s roof.

If you brainstorm, you’ll find that there’s a solution to most problems—one that lets you stay within your budget. The trick is to find the areas where improvements are needed, then work on them as best you can.
