Prior to selling your home, much of the focus is placed on staging and decluttering the interior. While these things are certainly important, sellers should also keep in mind that the exterior of their property is a potential buyer’s first impression for both in-person and online showings. That means the landscaping, front porch, windows, and even the garage can’t be overlooked. Here are a few tips when it comes to getting your home’s exterior in tip-top shape:
A well-manicured lawn and trimmed shrubs are imperative before any showing or open house, as anything that is overgrown can indicate that other areas of the house have been neglected. Bushes and greens are meant to enhance your home, not cover it up. Prune any ivy or other greenery that might be creeping over windows or doors. Additionally, flowers are a quick and inexpensive way to brighten up your landscape and convey an inviting feel.
