Here are some tips from The Don Miller Group, Century 21 Executives in Vernon, BC for attracting buyer attention to your house for sale!
1. Paint your front door a dramatic colour.
Giving your front door a new look is a quick project that will enhance the look of your home and attract buyers. When choosing a colour, keep in mind the brick colour, what’s on the front steps, and the style of your home. Don’t be afraid to go bold! If you are choosing a whole new colour palette for the exterior,be sure to look around your neighbourhood and browse home decorating magazines for a combination that suits your home and neighbourhood.
2. Put down a new front door mat.
Whether you prefer functional or whimsical, refresh your entry with a colourful, humourous or just a plain new doormat that makes you smile when you get to your door. You want buyers to feel welcome and inspired when they are viewing your home for sale.
3. Brighten up your entryway with a new light.
There is a good selection of affordable outdoor light fixtures in various styles. Choose a fixture that matches the architectural style of your home. Some lights are motion sensitive, while others can be put on dimmers, allowing you to control the mood lighting so you can enjoy your front porch at night without feeling like you are in a spot light. Remember potential buyers will be driving by at all times of the day or night for different views of your home for sale. Turn your lights on in the evening, they will be glad you did!
4. Seasonal plants in a stylish planter.
If you are not a green thumb kind of person, you can purchase beautiful premade planters and hanging baskets at your local garden centre or grocery store. Here in Vernon, BC we have lots of great garden stores or even the big box stores have great greenery for the front door at very affordable prices. For those who love playing in the dirt, get creative with your planters and recycle unused items such as old watering cans or teapots. Keep your theme seasonal so that buyers know you love living there and celebrate that fact! Your home for sale should be a show piece as there are lots of other homes for sale to choose from! You want to make your house for sale stand out!
