The Importance of Curb Appeal
When it comes to selling your home there is no exterior element that is more important than curb appeal. It can be said that no other exterior element is more important, because all exterior elements are part and parcel of the curb appeal of any home. Think of your home as a painting hanging in a gallery, the composition must be as close to perfect as possible to draw the most attention. The more positive attention a home gathers, the more likely it is that prospective buyers will want to take a closer look.
If you are selling your home, then its pretty obvious that you have gone to look for a new home. Think about when you were searching for your next home. Consider the properties that you looked at and remember what stood out about each of them. These are important things to remember as if they stood out to you, they likely stood out to others too. Now, set about your home and try to bring those qualities out.
Curb appeal goes far beyond the simple attributes of your home, it is a theme that is woven throughout your property and combined into one cohesive visual presentation. If done correctly, the curb appeal of a home can dazzle prospective buyers and make the neighbors a little jealous. The idea is to have the home look so good from the outside that people will stop to look at the home even if they are just driving by. Maybe they weren't even thinking about buying a house until they saw yours....you never know. Curb appeal is a powerful thing!
