Does Curb Appeal Really Matter?

The short answer is yes. Most sellers have a limited budget for sprucing their curb appeal prior to listing their home are usually ill-equipped to make those important design decisions. Making the right choices will result in the home appealing to the largest number of prospective buyers.

One of my all-time favorite real estate stories involves an agent friend and one of her clients. She was so excited that her sellers agreed to have their house repainted. She returned two weeks later to find a 2-toned bright blue house that looked like a 7-11 Slurpee. The sellers always wanted a blue house.

Your home isn’t about what you like it comes time to sell.

Your Realtor should be able to give you a detailed list of what should be done (inside and out) to prepare your home for sale. Ask them to prioritize the list and get as much done as your time and money will allow. Follow the list and do exactly what is specified. It’s like recipe. Substituting salt for sugar doesn’t work. If a substitution must be made during the process, call your Realtor.
