If you’re planning on selling your Lower Rio Grande Valley property, it’s crucial to amp up the curb appeal as much as possible. The first thing a buyer sees is the exterior of your home, and just like first impressions, their initial reaction to it is very important. Here are a few things to keep in mind when thinking about working on your home’s curb appeal:

 "Creating a great first impression is very important when selling your home."

  • Curb appeal begins online. It’s critical that you have high-quality photos of your home online. You want to display all the best features of your home online so that buyers are attracted to your home.
  • Act like a buyer. Walk around the entire exterior of your home with a critical eye, a notepad, and a pen. Write down anything that needs cleaning, repairing, or replacing, and make sure you take care of those items before showings.
  • Pressure washing. This is the best way to make your sidewalks, driveways, siding, and roof look like new.
  • Plant some color. Spruce up your porch containers, window boxes, and flowerbeds with some colorful flowers for an instant lift. Be sure not to plant any artificial flowers, as it just looks tacky.
  • Add some polish. Painting the door, the trim, and the shutters is a great way to polish the look of your home!
