To Prep or Not to Prep- Curb Appeal

Part 1 –When selling a home one of the biggest questions is what do I do to help sell my home. Most people have started the process of looking for their next home and do not want to put a lot of time, effort or money into the home they are trying to leave. But what if I told you there are some easy steps you can take to help in the process of selling your home and better yet most of these are free!

Curb Appeal

Let’s take a second as a Seller to stand in the Buyers shoes. Go outside and look at your house, if the person driving by knows nothing about the inside of your home, what about the outside will make them want to come in for a look.

It can be as easy as pulling some weeds, cutting the grass and trimming those over grown bushes. Not the outdoor type? No problem there are countless landscaping companies ready to come help and if you are watching the bank ask around, I’d guess you have friends with teenagers who would like to earn an extra buck or two.

I know these are only a few ideas and ultimately we should all take time to talk to our Realtor when prepping the house as they will have the most insight to you and your home, but if taking 5 minutes can help you sell faster why not!
