Curb Appeal Rules for Successful Summer Sales

“What happens at the front door sets the stage for the success of the showing.”

This extends to the curb during the summer. Take care of your facade, your lawn and your landscaping, even if you have to have it professionally maintained. Your return on investment will be tenfold.

What about the rest of the year?

Tastefully decorating for holidays – Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas especially – does enhance curb appeal. Just don’t overdo it. You want buyers to remember the great value your home is, and all of its features, not distracted by the Christmas lighting synchronized to Mannheim Steamroller.

Choosing the right Realtor® is important, too. Make sure that she or he knows how important quality marketing photos are to the success of your sale. You want new exterior photos taken frequently if your home is on the market during early Spring and late Fall. No snowy pictures after March 1st or before November 1st. Catch the beautiful Autumn colors before the leaves fall off in November. Snowy pictures in December, January and February can be pretty, too. Especially after fresh snow and an inversion cleaning storm, and the driveway and walkways are newly shoveled.
