When it comes to selling your home, you need to remember that first impressions count. If a buyer doesn’t like what they see on the outside they will probably keep driving. In fact, it is often the staging of the exterior that gets them excited enough about the home, to take a peek inside.

Front Entrance

The front entrance needs to be warm, welcoming and well lit. Make sure it isn’t cluttered with items you don’t need out there. You may consider adding pot plants or hanging baskets of flowers for colour.

Lawn Care

A lovely green lawn is something many homeowners are interested in. Don’t ignore this when you are trying to get your home on the market. Consider adding new turf if the current condition of the lawn isn’t the best. Trees and shrubs should be well trimmed and thriving. Plants can be a nice addition along the front of the home. Some colourful flowers can also be visually appealing.

Driveway and Footpaths

For most homes, the driveway covers a large percentage of the front yard. Use a high-pressure hose to remove dirt, debris, and other materials from the driveway and the footpaths. The edging of your lawn should make sure these areas aren’t covered with growth or weeds. Add a sealer to your driveway to help protect it and give it a new look.
