The old saying “You never get a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression” is especially true in real estate. Whether you're selling a house or a condo, in a hot or a slow market, as the seller you want to make a great first impression. Home Staging can help with this, and improving curb appeal is a vital part. Quite often, buyers will do a ‘drive-by' of your property, to gauge whether they want to call their own agent and invest their time in viewing your house or condo further. If during this drive-by they see things they don't like, the buyers may just decide to keep drivin'.

Home Staging your Curb Appeal

At the very least, home sellers should make sure that the exterior of the home is well repaired. Shingles are in good shape, no damaged siding and no flaking paint. And home staging should not stop with the house itself. Shrubs should be manicured, lawns cut, fertilized and weeded and sidewalks cleaned.

Winter Staging

In the winter, sidewalks should be shoveled to the front and around the side of the house. If you have a deck or patio, it should also be cleared of snow, so that buyers can see what they're getting. Take down any decorations (Christmas, Halloween, New Years etc) as soon as that particular festivity is over.
