Tips to Do
Paint the Outside a Color to Make Your House Stand Out
Paint the House
It is true; you do want your home to stand out on the block. Nevertheless, it should attract buyers by how well it fits into the neighborhood, not by how it sticks out like a sore thumb. The exterior might need freshen up and perhaps a good power wash might do the trick. Then consider re-painting the front door, since that is the first thing a buyer will see. If you must paint the house, choose a color that is in harmony with the neighbors.
Put in a Swimming Pool
A Swimming Pool
You may have a wonderful back yard that would be the perfect place for a swimming pool and you have dreamed of having one since you bought the house. However, the expense can be prohibitive, installation can take forever, and many buyers just do not want to be bothered with pool maintenance. Instead, spend several hundred dollars with some colorful landscaping. Clean up the weeds and trim the trees. Plant some sod in the bare spots. You will get your money back with a happy buyer.
Cut Down All the Trees So People Can See the House
If your home is set in the middle of a jungle of weeds, bushes, and trees so that no one can see it, by all means, trim everything back. Nevertheless, mature trees on a property are worth their weight in dollars. Professional tree trimming is costly, but it is better to get it done so that potential buyers can see what they are buying.
