What's all this hype about curb appeal?

 If you have ever sold a home or are thinking about selling a home now, you have likely heard of the term 'curb appeal'. Many people emphasize the importance of this term and suggest that a home without it is very unlikely to sell and if it does, it will sell for much lower than the original asking price. If this is true, curb appeal is something that everyone wanting to sell their home should understand. However, in order to understand it, we need to know what it is exactly.

Well, in short, curb appeal is how aesthetically pleasing and inviting your home looks from the curbside of the road. Just about every little detail imaginable is accounted for when evaluating a home's curb appeal (landscaping, yard furniture, potted plants, clean windows, etc.) and when all of these factors complement each other, people are much more likely to imagine themselves living there and are also more likely to want to get inside the home as well. If your home can leave a great first impression (after all, first impressions are often the lasting impressions) on potential buyers, it won’t take long to sell.


   In a housing market where the majority of homebuyers begin their browsing online, it has also become essential to take pictures that give your home curb appeal and that capture the beauty of its exterior. If you can photograph your home's exterior in a way that viewers experience what we call the 'awe factor' (the overwhelming feeling that one experiences from seeing a home that they would love to live in), you will have the edge on the competition and more potential buyers will click on your home's link for more info!


   If you wonder whether or not your home meets the 'awe factor' standards, try putting yourself in the buyer's shoes to determine what they would like and what they would not like about the home. It is important that you are honest with yourself while doing this and it might even be helpful to have a friend give you feedback about your home's appearance as well (After all it is possible that during your time living there that you forgot all about the crooked shutter or the flaking paint on the trim of your house). By honestly evaluating the overall appearance of your home, you can make needed repairs and also put in a little extra effort to set your home apart form the others on the Cache Valley housing market.
