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.

Looking to Sell? Learn All About Your Home’s Value

Looking for ways to increase your home’s value?

Putting your home on the market and analyzing your home’s value can be stressful, especially when you want to get bang for your buck. A lot of the time many home owners hold a certain expectation for their listing price. But, it is important to keep a couple things in mind. What have you done in order to retain your home’s value over the years? One important factor is maintenance.

1. Get A Home Inspection

Getting a home inspection prior to receiving an offer is a great way to get a better understanding of your home’s value. Many times, Buyer do not waive the home inspection and things are found that can potentially the transaction falling through. According to the DIY Network, “Not every home improvement is cosmetic. Deteriorating roofs, termite infestation or outdated electrical systems — you can’t fix it if you don’t know it’s broken. Hire an inspector to check out the areas of your home that you don’t normally see. They may discover hidden problems that could negatively impact your home’s value.

2. Don’t Procrastinate-Make those repairs!

 

We know, repairs mean money, Keeping up with maintenance can be time consuming. But, it is important to keep in mind that the longer you procrastinate at making certain repairs, you are risking matters getting worse and in the long run you could potentially end up paying more for something minor. According to This Old House “Before thinking about a fancy upgrade to the kitchen, address the basics. Insulate the attic, repair plumbing leaks, replace rusty rain gutters, inspect the furnace and the septic system, replace or repair leaky windows, install storm doors, weed the flower beds.” Small changes make a BIG difference when it comes to increasing your home’s value. You don’t have to spend a fortune. Keeping up with your landscaping and curb-appeal also makes an impact on the first impression of your home.

3. Consider staging your home.

 

Staging your home is important when it comes to Showings, Open House, and of course your home’s photos that will be posted online (which a lot of the time is the Buyers first impression). Try spending time with a professional stager to get some advice as they know what it takes to make your home more appealing. A couple things that will need to be done is de-cluttering, keeping it clean, and organized.

Many Buyers want to feel as if the home is already move- in ready and well taken care of. It is important to think about the qualities you look for in a home and apply those to your current home. Professional stagers also have great advice about moving furniture to make a room appear larger & more spacious (which is a big deal to buyers) ..Also, adding simple little details that make a difference. Refreshing a paint job with neutrals also has been proven to help sell your home faster, for the most money.
