How to improve the profit on your home with small investments: This is first in a series of 50+ Techniques and Strategies to improve the value of your home.
Make a Better First Impression:
Everyone knows that you don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression. That is particularly true when it comes to your home.
When you want to sell your home, first impressions are critical. Among real estate people this is called curb appeal. This means the home looks good when a potential buyer first drives up and parks on the curb. That good impression should continue as they walk through the home.
Real Estate Agents know that a buy or don’t buy decision is made with that first impression, even though buyers may not realize it until later. If the initial impression of your home is favorable, potential buyers walk through your home thinking positive thoughts. They will be looking for reasons to reinforce their positive thoughts…the reasons to buy your home. It will take something very negative to knock them off this first track.
If however the first impression is negative, the buyer goes through your house with the mindset that says, “show me why I should change that first impression and buy this place.” Now the buyer has to be turned around- a much harder job.
If you are planning on selling your home, it is imperative that you immediately begin improving the curb appeal of your house. If, however, selling your home is just a thought you have for the future, you should remember creating curb appeal doesn’t happen overnight. If you start now and work on creating curb appeal over a period of years, the cost will be greatly reduced to say nothing of the stress.
