Curb Appeal

B5ERTC_front.hdr.jpg

You do not get a second chance to make a first impression. This is especially true when selling a home in Prince William County. Buyers typically make up their minds within 10 seconds of entering the front door, then spend the rest of their visit reaffirming their decision. An attractive yard is the first step to drawing buyers to a property.


§  Keep the lawn cut and trees/shrubbery trimmed.

§  Weed flower beds and remove any dead plants/shrubs.

§  Add colorful potted flowers or plants to the front porch and/or deck.

§  Be sure plants do not block windows.

§  Keep driveways, walkways and porches free of leaves and debris.

§  Add a fresh coat of paint, stain or varnish to the front door and door frame.

§  Clean gutters so they are free of debris.

§  Caulk around windows, if needed.

§  Minimize the amount of furniture on your patio, deck and other outdoor areas.

§  Put away lawn mowers, rakes, shovels, and other landscaping tools.

Pack it Away

When selling your house, less is definitely more! De-personalizing and de-cluttering your home will enable potential buyers to visually move in; it will also make your house appear more spacious.

§  Sell or give away or donate unwanted items.

§  Clear surfaces of all but the bare essentials, even bookshelves.

§  Keep buyers focused on the house by removing personal photographs.

§  Clean out closets/pantries, keeping floors clear so storage spaces appear roomier.

§  Pack out-of-season clothes and holiday items.

§  Put away collectibles, prescription medications and other valuables to avoid breakage or theft.

§  Personal information should be kept in a safe place out of sight (ex: mail, bills, etc.).

§  Remove area rugs and over-sized furniture so rooms appear larger.


Make it Stand Out

To make your home stand out from others on the market, be sure it sparkles! Clean the house from top to bottom, including corners where cobwebs hide. Be sure windows and mirrors shine. Pay special attention to the little details like vent covers, switch plates, light fixtures, and baseboards.


§  Make sure your kitchen is spotless. Take magnets and other items off the refrigerator.

§  Clean inside and around the fireplace; dispose of ashes and partially-burned pieces of wood.

§  Clean windows inside and out so light is able to enter and illuminate your home.

§  Keep floors swept. Vacuum and steam clean carpets to give them a new look.

§  Remove stains from garage floors. Stack boxes along walls to highlight its storage capacity.

§  Make sure your bathrooms are spotless.

Parents Of Small Children

§  Reduce the number of toys in main areas of the home and in the yard.

§  Be sure all toilets are flushed and potty training seats are out of sight.


Pet Owners
