So the decision has been made, and selling your home is the answer. Now what?
Are you trying to figure out what you can do for a minimal amount of time and money to increase the value of your home? Have you checked out your curb appeal lately? Exterior verses interior, what’s the best investment of your money?
I have found that when you are thinking about selling your home in Lee County or Collier County, nothing sells a home better than…
…clean. So many times people will list their homes and clean up the inside by having the carpets cleaned. They have a professional house cleaner come in and clean the mirrors, but what they don’t realize is that the exterior is the first impression. When stepping unto that property, especially when looking at $500,000 to $1,000,000 homes, if it doesn’t have that million dollar look buyers tend to think it hasn’t been taken care of. You could really lose the sale.
For a little bit of money you can spruce up the front entrance, and get rid of the mold and mildew on the gutters, the driveway, the pool cage, and the deck. You can restore your curb appeal. When your home looks like a million dollar home and it “shines like a new dime”, that is what increases the value. So instead of doing the expensive repairs like changing a room or ripping out and refurbishing a kitchen, just clean the roof and really make it pop from the exterior. This will give it that smell of clean. Nothing is better that a clean smelling house when you are walking around the property with a realtor.
If selling your home is your next step and you want to sell it a little bit quicker, make it show better from the outside by doing these simply things. It will definitely help you get more “bang for your buck”.
