As you prepare to list your home, it is only natural to focus on the interior. With this, you may find yourself spending time updating rooms, painting, or installing new floors and light fixtures. While a great interior is the ultimate selling point of your home, the exterior is equally as important, as it is the basis of your potential buyer’s first impression when they arrive. If you are preparing to sell your home in the near future, consider these ways in which your outdoor space plays a key role in the process of listing your home.
Curb Appeal Makes the First Impression
On average, first impressions are formulated within seven seconds of an experience. As your potential buyer sees your home for the first time, you want your home to make the best possible impression upon their arrival. A little TLC can go a long way in polishing the image of your home, whether it’s painting the shutters, repairing your driveway, or adding flowers to your landscape to freshen up the look of your outdoor space.
Landscaping and Lighting Highlights Features
Playing up the lighting around your landscape is a great way to add life to your property and freshen up the look of your outdoor space. Be sure to trim trees and bushes to show off the best of your home and prevent them from blocking the natural light that can come in through your doors and windows. Just as you would stage the interior of your home, staging your landscape plays an important role in selling the charm and best features of your house.
Outdoor Living Spaces Set the Stage for the Future
By setting up an outdoor living space, you are setting the stage for a potential buyer to envision their new life in your home. Small additions, such as staging your patio or deck with outdoor seating or basic accessories can make your yard an inviting place for any potential buyer. This could be especially appealing to younger families, especially those with children or pets who would be regularly enjoying the space.
