Ask the Expert: Curb Appeal

Ask the Expert: Curb Appeal
Rich Ferretti
Broker/Realtor, NC/SC

I work with home buyers all the time who make snap decisions about properties just based on what they initially see as we drive up. Things like recently mowed grass, fresh mulch and blooming flowers make a huge difference to buyers, who will sometimes refuse to even go inside a home if the curb appeal isn't there.If you are considering selling your home in the next few months, think about how your home looks to someone looking at it for the first time. Are the sidewalks, walkways, driveways and patios free of cracks? Are there colorful flowers and well-edged flower beds? Do the gutters need cleaning, or the siding pressure-washed?

Curb appeal is an important factor in home selling. It increases values and decreases time spent on the market. Nothing can make a bigger difference in the sale process than great exterior home staging, and no one does it better than Metro GreenScape!
