Imagine driving up to a house with unkempt trees and bushes, a messy yard and unsightly stuff scattered all over from the previous season. Why would you want to set foot inside that house if you already have an impression of how this homeowner manages the outside? By just removing a few things you can easily fix the problem. Just clean up the yard, add some color and get rid of any cluttered items littering the lawn.
Put Some Things Away and Leave Others On Display
It’s important to know which items on a home’s exterior will entice buyers and which items will be a put off. Putting yourself in the buyers’ shoes, remove items that may detract from their enjoyment of the space and even hinder their ability to see the house for its positive attributes. Be sure to hide garbage cans and other lawn equipment. By the same token, set up some nice things that will pull buyers in and keep them interested. Examples are colorful flowerpots and flowers on the front porch, seasonal garden accessories (try not to overdo it) or a fresh coat of paint on the front door.
Maintain the Outside of Your Home So Buyers Want to Go Inside
There are some buyers that won’t even set foot inside a home if they get a negative impression from the outside. That is just one of the reasons you will want to make your home’s exterior as attractive as possible and then keep it maintained. If you have outdoor plants, keep them watered. Keep your lawn manicured and as inviting as possible. Extend the indoor space into an outdoor living space that buyers will want to make their own.
