Hints When Selling Your South Bay Home

If you are planning to sell your South Bay home, there are some inexpensive ways to help with the curb appeal and overall presence and help that all important “first impression”. When potential buyers come to see your home, the first thing they will look at is the front yard, garage, lawn and plants, trees, front porch, paint condition, driveway and walkway, windows and screens, doors condition, etc.

Important and often overlooked is the condition of the garage door. Next is the driveway condition and porch condition. The lawn should be trimmed and planters neat and free of weeds or dead plants. Trees should be trimmed and leaves or needles raked up underneath each tree. The front door and screen should look perfect, porch light updated and working, steps and floor of porch need to be perfect, as well as the walkway leading to the house. Clear trash from yard and along fences and curb way. Make sure fences look good and are not needing repair or paint. Don’t have screens with holes or one screen missing from a window.

Have hoses rolled up or removed as well as garden tools.
Following this guideline will help convince potential buyers that the inside looks as good as the outside, and makes them feel more welcome. Questions?  Talk to your Realtor for more advice on making your home more appealing during the selling process.
