Curb appeal is the most important part of staging a home before it goes on the market. It is the first impression potential buyers will get when they drive up to the property, so you want it to start things off on a positive note. The quality of the exterior reflects the owner and what buyers can expect inside the house. Some buyers will even skip going inside if they don’t like the way it looks on the outside. That’s why it is very important you pay special attention to this area and add curb appeal wherever it is lacking.
In this episode of Megan’s Home Staging Webinar: Exterior Upgrades, she shows you:
- How to look at your home’s curb appeal through a buyer’s eye to spot what exterior upgrades or improvements it needs
- Quick tips on maximizing your curb appeal
- How to use landscape lighting to increase the ambiance and appeal of your home
- How to create a more inviting entryway with easy, budget-friendly décor
- And how to evaluate your front door to make sure it’s in tip-top shape
Buyers have time to notice everything when they pull up to the curb or driveway. Their eyes will be anxiously taking everything in. While as homeowners we usually head right inside without giving our front yard curb appeal much thought, buyers will be seeing everything for the first time and therefore closely examining things that we typically walk right by. This means even the “smallest” details can have a big impact on buyers, from cracks in the driveway to rusted fixtures on the front porch.
In this webinar, Megan outlines the specific spots to evaluate and what exterior upgrades will make the biggest difference in your curb appeal. You’ll learn what to look for that buyers will notice consciously or subconsciously, what you should freshen up, and what you should potentially replace. Some projects only require a little bit of elbow grease to make a big difference.
