5 Outdoor Tips Before Selling Your Home

Check out these tips to prepare your outdoor space when selling your home. A little sweat equity that goes a long way.




Clean and clear the walkway.

Create a nice flow to the front door. Clear the path. Give it a good power wash. Place a potted flower or some greenery for some pop of color and cheerfulness. Keep it alive and don't let it wilt. You want it to be inviting.  


Clean your outdoor furniture. 

Buyers do not like seeing anything dirty. Period. It's part of staging your home to sell. Arrange your furniture in a way that invites buyers to sit down and imagine themselves living there and enjoying the backyard. 


Clean the entire exterior of the house.

Clear away cobwebs. Move any inoperable and junk vehicles out of the driveway. Trim your shrubbery. Pull out the weeds. Pick up the trash. Kids and pet play things should be stored away. Put away your lawn equipment back in the shed. I would even suggest you remove some of your outdoor furniture to make the backyard appear bigger. 


Keep your lawn in good shape.

Make sure to mow your lawn. Keep it green and keep it trimmed. Pick up any trash that has been blown into your yard. 


Fix what you can fix.

Replace broken bulbs. Repair leaning fences if you can and fix broken windows and broken screens. The point is to get your house in the best possible condition. The less items that needs to be fix a buyer sees, the more appealing a house becomes, the better your chances of receiving an offer which is the goal.

4 Factors That Sells a Home

 Here are 4 factors that sells a home. 




Price

This is arguably the most important factor when selling your home. A well-priced home often generates competing offers and drives up the final sale. Your agent should be able to review comparative market analysis (CMA) with you and advise accordingly as what you should price your home at to get you as close as possible to market value. 


Condition

What a property looks like. Appearance is everything when selling a home. Mow the lawn. Clear away the clutter. Pick up the kids' toys. Rearrange furniture to create space if needed. Make your bed. Wash the dishes. Put away the items on the kitchen counter if possible. You'd be surprised what fresh paint can do to your home.  If you can fix serious issues affecting the property, do it. You want to "WOW" the buyers as soon as they walk in. 


Access

Agent's ability to get in to show the property. The easier the access, the more likely we get a showing and secure an offer. Showing sells home and the easier the access, the more likely you get a showing and secure an offer that can result in a successful sale.


Exposure

The way to attract potential buyers to the home for sale. In one word - MARKETING. This is why you hire a real estate agent. Professional photography, video tours, and beautiful descriptions are some of the tools agents use to create amazing digital presentation which we then use to advertise the property. Agents use the power of the social media and other online sites to provide the maximum exposure to public. A good agent should be able to advertise the beauty of the home as well as its value.
