Video thumbnail for youtube video Lockwood Estates Homes For Sale - Lockwood Estates Desert RidgeThe idea that a person only gets one chance to make a first impression also holds true in the real estate business. A potential home buyer will often form an opinion about a home as soon as they drive into the driveway. In fact, sometimes they will decide whether or not to look inside based on its curb appeal. Curb appeal includes such details as paint color, landscaping lighting design and architectural style. Adding curb appeal to your home might be the single most important thing you can do to boost property value and to attract possible buyers to your home.

What can you do to improve the first impression of your home in Desert Ridge Real Estate? Curb appeal is that elusive quality that makes a house warm, inviting, interesting, and inviting. An easy way to start is to wash any dirt, mildew, or grunge off the outside of your home. Wash your windows inside and out, swipe cobwebs from eaves and hose down your garage door.

Freshen the paint. A good realtor in the Desert Ridge Real Estate area will tell you to give your home a good paint job. Painting your home can get expensive, but it is well worth it as you will increase the value of your home.

Check the condition of your roof. Missing or faded shingles or tiles will do nothing to add value to your home. Make sure you call a professional to do any roof repair to make sure it’s done correctly without damaging it any further.

Invest in landscaping. Keep your yard neat and trimmed and replace any overgrown bushes with leafy plants or colorful annuals. Pull weeds and plant a few geraniums in pots. Make sure grass is green with no bare spots. Keep up with edging. A well- manicured lawn makes a great first impression.

Outdoor lightning is essential to curb appeal. Well-executed outdoor lighting enhances the look of your front yard and plays up landscape features. Stick to warm lighting to get the “moonlight effect”. Focus up lighting on trees and light up any walkways that are present in the yard. Lighting is also important for security.

You only get one chance to make a first impression in Desert Ridge Homes for Sale. Keep your home maintained and keep it looking clean and well taken care of.
