As with most things in life, the way people hunt for houses has changed in recent years. Driving around was once the only way to get a feel for what was available. Now, most buyers look online before anything. In many ways, this makes selling your house easier. If your neighborhood is more crowded than you’d like, you can at least wow with your interior images before buyers see that. Once you have their hearts, after all, there’s more chance of them putting an offer in regardless.
But, that’s not to say old methods have fallen away entirely. Many people will still drive by once your house is on the market. After all, most of us like to check an area before committing to a viewing. So, no matter how fantastic your interior photos, your exterior could still let you down.
Of course, you can’t do anything about your street itself. But, you can make sure that first exterior impression leaves buyers calling up for a viewing. And, here’s how.
Selling Your Home? It's Time You Prepared For Those Drive-By Viewings!
A clean exterior
While we all try to look past other people’s belongings, a messy room is an instant turn off. This is especially the case if the paint and walls themselves are in need of attention. So, there’s a chance you’ve scrubbed, scoured, and even repainted the worst culprits indoors. Yet, that won’t help any unless you also take care of your exterior. In fact, you may not even get any viewings if your outside looks scruffy. So, get that bowl of soapy water and wash down your window fittings. Scrub your siding to get it up to scratch. If that doesn’t work, you might even want to contact someone like this siding company, Tulsa Renew, who can replace any unappealing siding for you. It’s also worth cleaning your gutters and giving your roof a little spruce. Every little helps, that’s for sure.
These are just a few ideas for giving your home curb appeal. Would you suggest any others? Let me know in the comments below!
