First impressions are everything and when preparing to sell your home, making sure the house looks presentable and de-cluttering we often overlook the importance of kerb appeal.
Increasingly potential buyers are doing a ‘drive by’ before they even come for a viewing. With the use of virtual and property video tours buyers may have increased their interest to the next level and wandered by to have a look.
They say that first impressions count, and this is totally true! A glance at the exterior of the house gives the prospective buyer an indication into whether a seller has looked after their property or not. If the exterior of your home doesn’t look the best it may potentially prevent buyers from stepping inside.
In this blog we discuss some top tips on how to improve your home’s kerb appeal!
Give Your Property A Lick of Paint
