Sell that home quicker! Tips for agents & sellers to bump up that curb appeal!

In a slow market, sellers need to do everything possible to help get their home looked at. Here are some basic tips.

1. Beware of grand gestures: Exterior improvements should be in keeping with the scale and proportion of your house and fit in with the neighborhood. So as lovely as a formal colonnade might look on the front of your boxy Colonial Revival, it may seem over the top when viewed in context with the simple salt box next door.

2. Don't stand out like a sore thumb: When picking paint colors, it's best to match the intensity of your neighbors' shades. If pale blues are the norm, try a creamy yellow. Contrast that with a more saturated accent color for shutters and doors, and a lighter one for windows and trim.

3. Be a tree hugger: If an old maple is obscuring the front of your home, don't cut it down. Hire professional to trim it instead. Eighty-three percent of Realtors say that mature trees enhance the value of a home.

4. Plant for all seasons: Your landscape should be eye-catching year-round, even in the dead of winter. So choose a mix of plants to provide four seasons of interest-spring and summer flowers, bright fall foliage, and colorful berries or showy bark in winter.

5. You can have too much of a good thing: Over-improving your facade can mean recouping less of the cost when it comes time to sell. Gauge how much to spend on renovations by checking home values to see what gussied-up homes are going for in your community, and stay under their bar.

6. Do sweat the small stuff: New house numbers, a special light fixture, and potted plants are inexpensive and go a long way toward dressing up an entry.

7. Preservation pays: Before you apply stucco over those weathered clapboards for a clean, low-maintenance look, consider that restoring architectural details may offer more bang from your renovation dollar. In some areas, the value of homes in historic districts where preservation is required has risen up more than in non- historic areas.

So if you are planning on selling your home, please keep in mind the information noted above as this will help you to get that home sold. If you would like a Professional Real Estate Analysis, please feel free to contact me, It would be my pleasure to help you accomplish your goal. I welcome your response.
