Boost Your Curb Appeal to Sell Your St. Louis Home

When selling a home, making sure that it looks great should be a priority.  Nobody wants to buy a dump, right?  No, buyers are looking for a great home that fits what they want.  If you have homeowners are looking for, you can make the sale more likely by following these steps to boost your curb appeal to sell your St. Louis home.

Paint the Ugly Parts

When your home has been around for a few years, the paint will start to chip and fade.  Paint is the shield for the wood on your home, and should be refreshed when it starts to fade.  It can also fall out of style.  If your home was built in the 80’s or 90’s, the color combinations could be horribly outdated and turn off buyers.  A repaint of the home, or at least the trim, can help show off how nice your home is.

Declutter

Don’t just leave garbage cans, recycling tubs, toys, bikes, etc. lying around.  I know it’s hard to get kids to clean up or drag the trash can another 20 feet, but it will be worth it to have a clean, uncluttered home to show off to potential buyers.  Let them see it at its best.

Trim It Up

Don’t let your yard and landscaping go to seed.  People want to know that you are taking care of the house.  Get out the hedge trimmers and clean up the yard and shrubbery to make your home shine like it should.  Don’t make the mistake that many homeowners make when they try to sell their home.  Keep up on the yardwork and you’ll see an increase in interest.
