“Look” as if you are buying…
How does your front porch look? Your front porch can be a statement about you, your family and your home. While you may not care what your statement is, you should if you are selling your home do to any type of Relocation.
If you are capable of it, stand back and take a look at your front porch through the eyes of a stranger. If you are not capable of looking at your home with a fresh point of view perhaps you could enlist a friend or neighbor to take a look and offer an unbiased opinion.
Some that are relocating have no choice
Relocation is a HUGE step, as is any real estate endeavor. However, with relocation, sometimes the audience is captive. Those needing to relocation may not have any other choice. Hiring the BEST Relocation Realtor is key for your success.
How about a Pretty Box?
The first step to an inviting front porch is the all-too-familiar approach of de-cluttering. Kids toys, bikes, tools, and other items should be removed and placed out of site.
You can improve the appearance of your porch by placing an attractive box or basket(s) in a good spot for items like these that are used on a continual basis.
A “Honey Do” list
The next step is to examine the condition of the steps, flooring, and railings of your front porch. Some steps may need to be replaced, nails punched back in on the decking, and railings re-tethered. The idea is for a safe, clean, functional space.
Another great idea is to add a flower box, hanging flower baskets, or a potted plant or two, depending on the size and layout of your front porch. A bright burst of flowers is inviting. Getting some furniture can also be a great idea. A comfortable place to sit can add to the charm of your front porch.
For those “other” that are relocating to your neck of the woods – showing off the types of flowers and plants that can grown in your environment can be very helpful for the relocating buyer.
The important thing to remember about your front porch is that it is a segue into your home. The more attractive and inviting this entrance is the more likely potential buyers will want to enter your front door. The front porch adds a lot of value to your home’s curb appeal.
