1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
Whether you are looking at selling your property or simply giving it a bit of a facelift, first impressions count. You need to ensure that your home has great street appeal. Firstly, you need to assess what your current street appeal is. Stand across the road and have a good look at your home. Better still ask a neighbour or friend to give you unfiltered feedback too. What works? What needs improving? What looks scruffy and what catches your eye? Do your research by taking a drive around your neighbourhood and making notes on homes that are well presented and appealing. What is different about them. If you need extra inspiration, visit real estate sites to see how homes in your area are presented. If you are looking at selling, remember that the first image people look at is the exterior. This will motivate them to either click on your property or scroll past it.
