The importance of kerb appeal when selling property

20.9.13With the auction clearance rates reaching new highs across Sydney and the official cash rate lowering interest rates, now could be the perfect time to consider selling your home. However, when it comes to selling your property, it isn’t easy enough to simply put an open home sign out the front and wait for potential buyers to pour in from the street. With the number of houses on the market at the moment, you have to really work to differentiate yourself from the other homes in your neighbourhood.

Taking care of your home and increasing the property’s kerb appeal is an important part of attracting buyers to your home. Not only does it make your property look desirable, but it can often help to increase the prospective value of the home as well – helping you stimulate your sale returns.

There are a number of things that can be done to help boost the appeal of your property. Outside of the obvious garden tending and lawn mowing, take the time to really scrutinise each and every aspect of your property’s exterior.

For example, look into giving your home a new coat of paint. Not only will this give the property a new lease on life, but getting up close and personal can help you see any smaller, more obscure problems that need to be taken care of.

Things like cracked drain pipes and skirting, loose roof tiles and broken exterior doors to your home’s crawl space are among the things to keep an eye out for while investigating repairs.

Stimulating buyer interest in your house means taking a closer, objective look at the property and ensuring that everything is in tip top shape.
