The time has come for you to list your house for sale, and all that’s left are the final touches. Every step of the process is important, including these last minute items, and one of these has to do with your home’s curb appeal. Curb appeal refers to your home’s outdoor appearance, and can apply to people who have seen your listing online and have decided to set up a showing, as well as people who attend your open house or are simply passing by. Maximizing your home’s curb appeal is an incredibly important part of the home selling process that many homeowners have a tendency to neglect. First impressions are everything, and with this in mind, we’ll talk more in-depth about curb appeal and a few things that you can do to help make the best impression on potential buyers.


Whether you’ve lived in your home for a year or a decade, there comes a time where you eventually become comfortable. While there’s nothing better than the comfort of home, in becoming comfortable, you may also become blind to some of the things that could make your house unappealing to potential buyers. With this in mind, once you’ve decided to list it for sale, step outside and take a few photos of your home. Spend some time paying attention to details. You’ll likely notice things that you’ve always wanted to fix but never got around to, as well as new parts that you perhaps were unaware needed to be repaired. This will serve as an initial checklist for you in relation to things that you’ll want to take care of before you put your house up for sale. This will help provide you with a great starting point of jobs that you’ll want to take care of, and from there, you’ll be able to get to start doing the work that you need to increase your home’s curb appeal.


Looking at your photographs, what sort of work needs to be done to your landscaping? Are there trees that need to have branches trimmed? Are there leaves and other debris scattered along the yard? Perhaps your flower beds could use some new soil. These are all important aspects to consider when thinking about curb appeal. From the outside, your home should invite and entice people to come and see what’s inside, and a yard that’s messy, scattered with leaves and unkempt greenery will likely discourage guests from wanting to go any further. Additionally, you should pay close attention to anything that may be scattered on your lawn, be it toys, landscaping equipment, or discarded trash. A little bit of effort goes a long way, and by doing this, you can greatly increase your home’s curb appeal, making it more attractive to anyone who chooses to come and check out your newly listed home for sale.


Looking at your photographs, you may notice small areas of your home that could use a little bit of a paint touch-up. Paint can make all the difference, and by covering up any imperfections, you will be able to show your visitors that you took the time to fix even the smallest blemishes, giving them the peace of mind that yours is a home of quality.


Those are just a few quick and simple ways to increase your home’s curb appeal. Tru North Realty is here to help homeowners sell their home in Roseau, and help others find a home in Roseau. Contact us today to learn more about our Roseau real estate agency!
