Has your house got enough 'Kerb Appeal'?

"Have you got 'Kerb Appeal'?"

Psychologists say that we make up our minds about a person within the first fifteen seconds of meeting them. And the same is true when viewing a property to buy.

It’s likely a prospective buyer will have made up their mind before they’ve even walked through your front door. So making sure a great first impression is made is often VERY overlooked.

The theory behind selling your house
A lot has been written about how to style the interior of your house – the smell of coffee floating through the air, the use of mirrors so the buyer can literally see themselves there.

But not much is said about the front exterior...

Which in reality is where the buying process begins. The second a buyer steps onto your drive, they are judging your property based on its looks.

As they walk towards your house they will be asking themselves ‘could I live here?’ So you need to do everything you can to make that answer a resounding ‘Yes’. Go outside and approach your house as a buyer would. What do they see?

A dirty, unkept driveway with weeds growing out of the joints??

This is sure to give them the impression that if the driveway is unkept then the rest of the house is right..?

This isn't going to be helping answer a big fat YES to the 'could I live here?' question ALL prospective buyers ask.

The major element to focus on is the walkway up to your house as this has the biggest influence on the first impression created.

... go on to talk about how a bad first impression can create a 'mist' over the rest of the viewing... get them to relate to a time this has happened to them. (E.g. When you think of something you don't like and that's all you think about when doing the rest of something)
