Unicorn Property! 🦄 How important is curb appeal to the sale of your home?! 

One of our latest sold properties, 14 Amherst Street #WilmingtonMA is a good indication. Covelle & Company successfully marketed and sold this beauty for 20% over the highest sold home to date in Wilmington!!!

Curb appeal is more than just how a house looks; it’s also a clever marketing tactic. What is curb appeal if not a type of marketing that aims to sell a home from the outside in? Expectations are set by curb appeal. If a prospective buyer likes what they see on the outside, they are more likely to look inside. When it comes to selling a home, first impressions matter. While improving a property’s outside may not be as thrilling as deciding what to do with the kitchen, it is more crucial in many respects. You want your property to have a “wow” factor at first glimpse. It shouldn’t, at the very least, turn off the vast majority of purchasers. The home’s curb appeal, on the other hand, should inspire consumers to investigate further.

When most agents shy away because there is no real comparable property to justify that dollar amount. Covelle & Co is there to recognize the unicorn 🦄 and accept the challenge!!! 💪🏻✨

The Unicorn Property: A golden opportunity to set a new record high for a town, paving the way for higher price points to fold into the market and boosting property value all around! 

Almost 90% of home buyers start their search for a new house on the internet. Having said that, if you want to spark potential buyers’ interest, you’ll need eye-catching photos that highlight your home’s curb appeal. Take many photos of your home at different times of the day for the greatest lighting and without any extra clutter like cars, bikes, toys, and so on. You want to present your home in the best possible light.

Improving a home’s exterior appeal will increase its value and speed up its sale. Homes are often valued based on the quality and amenities of the interior, making it difficult for financial institutions to determine how much curb appeal adds to the worth of a home. Properties with well-kept lawns and excellent landscaping, on the other hand, sell for 7% more than similar homes with exterior flaws or ugly front yards.

Have you been thinking of selling your home, want an agent who’s going to provide good direction so that you can obtain the highest possible return on your long-term investment? Covelle & Co. is here for you locally, nationally, and globally.. with connections and relationships with agents all over the world! 

The Best Ways To Boost Your House’s Curb Appeal

The lovely thing about curb appeal is that it’s simple to achieve with a few small changes. Here are six strategies to boost your home’s curb appeal:

 

Trees, Grass, and Landscaping

It’s pointless to devote your entire budget to the interior of your property if the exterior is a disaster. The quality of the lawn, landscaping and any other greenery near the front of the property should be your first priority.

 

The House’s Roof

In addition to beautifying the landscaping, you should assess the physical condition of your property, particularly the roof. Few aspects will either turn away or entice prospective buyers more than a home’s roof, despite the fact that it is not often viewed as the most beautiful component of a property. If the roof is old and just has a few years remaining on it, replacing it and trying to sell the house for a better price will provide you a positive return on your investment. Unless they are receiving a terrific deal, buyers will not want to pay out of pocket for a new roof after purchasing a home.

 

The Property’s Exterior

In addition to the roof, you should inspect the siding and exterior of the building. The presence of a filthy exterior should not be overlooked. Power washing a deck or your home’s siding won’t take long but will make a great difference.

 

Parking lot

The driveway is another outside feature that is sometimes disregarded. Your driveway doesn’t need to be replaced or resealed, but it shouldn’t be in bad shape either.

 

Front Door

What is the one thing you can’t seem to avoid seeing every time you go into your house? Your front door is the answer. Rather than replacing the door totally, investigate if a fresh coat of paint will suffice to bring it up to date. A front door in black or charcoal raises the value of a home by $6271.

Designs By Erica | Broadway Kitchen

With vision, determination, collaboration, and a little bit of magic, Erica transformed a Somerville condo into this luxurious dream home! 419 Broadway Terrace, Unit 2 is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo complete with gorgeous designer finishes and a bright open floor plan. It is incredible to see what careful attention to detail and an extraordinary eye for design can truly achieve. Let us show you the materials and finishes used to make Erica’s vision a reality!

 

The first aspect of this home that is an immediate eye-catcher is the natural light oak flooring. Not only does it brighten the entire interior, but it also makes it look extremely spacious. This floor allows for great contrast with any medium to dark piece of furniture. It is a solid base for the perfect entertaining space as is both fresh and inviting.

 

Next, the eye is immediately drawn to the gorgeous white dolomite countertops. They add to the overall bright and open feel of the entire home. The counters glimmer with impeccable detail and shine, offering a fresh, clean space for any culinary adventure. They are elegant and trendy at the same time, and make the entire kitchen and dining space feel cohesive.

The island is the perfect space to cook or entertain and serves as a great transition into the dining space. It is also very convenient as it allows for additional seating. The deep sink and impressive industrial-style brushed brass faucet adds both functionality and style. The island area is finished with two white cone-shaped pendant lights with gold interiors. These stunning pendants are definitely a show-stopper when you enter this exquisite space.

 

The classic white custom cabinetry makes the kitchen feel timeless. The continuation of bright white details enhances the entirety of the space. The cabinets are accented with brushed brass hardware which gives a modern and chic feel. By adding a white hood vent, it seamlessly blends into the cabinetry. The stunning dolomite behind the stove provides the perfect amount of detail, as it is bold and extremely eye-catching. The fresh white stacked ceramic tile backsplash compliments the dolomite well without being overpowering.
