Tips From Top Real Estate Agents
You may be thinking that revamping your entire home’s exterior sounds like a process that’s both overwhelming and much too difficult to undertake. The good news is that with a bit of thoughtful consideration, you can transform your home without breaking the bank. As you can imagine, in all of our years in the real estate business, we’ve seen a number of homes. That means we know what works and what doesn’t. We also have a unique insight into what exactly it is that current buyers want to see.
Here are a few of our favorite tips:
Consider What You’d Like to See
When you moved into the home, you may have had a few ideas about the exterior. Trust your eye, because generally speaking, you know what your home needs to look its absolute best. As long as you choose tasteful decor and timeless colors, you’ll be set. Perhaps you saw that the shutters on the front of the home needed some touch up paint, but you never got around to it. Now is the time! Speaking of which…
Pick a Great Color Palette
As much as you might appreciate a rich color like surf green, you have to consider what your buyers may want. That doesn’t mean that you should go for something bland and boring, however. Your goal is to make a statement, but it needs to be one that isn’t overwhelming because of the choice of color or underwhelming because it seems uninspired. If you’re feeling concerned about this step, don’t worry, because the team at Brandi Tate Real Estate can help you to figure out what you need to do. We make selling real estate a breeze!
Choose the Right Accessories
If you have a porch, you’ll want to take advantage of that space to create a welcoming environment. The exterior of your home is the first chance you get to make your potential buyers feel welcomed and ensure that they think, “Yep, I could live here.” Whether that means hanging a few plants in decorative planters, lining the walkway with solar powered lights, or setting out a rocking chair and a welcome mat, considering which accessories you need in front of your home might be the key to setting it apart from the rest of the competition.
