Selling your home can be stressful. You want to make the most money from the sale of your home and you want it to sell quickly. Here is a tip that will help you sell your home for more money: Make a great first impression. It’s sounds too easy but it will make a big difference to your potential home buyers.

We’ve all heard about good curb appeal. Of course you want your home to look good or even have a ‘wow’ factor right when people pull up to your home. But, have you ever been with a realtor to takes the client us to the house and then they fiddle with the lockbox but can’t get it open. They double check their phone then try the lockbox again. Meanwhile the potential buyers are spending minutes standing on the front porch with the anticipation of seeing the inside of this house.

This is a huge opportunity that is often overlooked by home sellers. If your front door it dirty, there’s bird poop on the front step and spider webs cover the corners, it gives the impression that your home is unkept. The home buyers may question how clean the inside of the house is going to be. 

You can make a really strong first impression if you really clean up the front entry way, wash your door with a rag and powerwash the front patio. You could also consider changing out the door handle. 

Improving the entry way and front door is the easiest way to make a strong first impression to your potential buyers. This is a great way to increase the amount of money you get for your house or to shorten the time it takes to sell your home.
