SOLDIf you are looking to sell your home, you may find that it’s harder than you thought. Southern Real Estate Sales has some wonderful real estate agents in Perdido Key and surrounding areas that can help you.  Without knowing your specific situation, it’s hard to say what is making your home hard to sell, but one thing we can say for sure – curb appeal matters.  A majority of home buyers will drive by a home before contacting anyone. Here are a few tips from our real estate agents in Perdido Key to help improve your home’s curb appeal.

Make sure your home is easy to find! If you’re trying to sell your home, make sure people can find it easily. You might want to replace the house numbers if they are old, dingy, or hard to read.

Keep it clean! Take a walk around the outside of your home, or better yet, have a friend walk around the outside of your home and get their opinion.  Is your yard well kept? Does the house need to be pressure washed? Are the gutters clean? These small details can be easy to overlook and can make a huge difference when people see your home for the first time.

Add some color. If you notice that your house isn’t as vibrant as it once was, then add some color to brighten it up. Paint the door, add some colorful plants or trees, or replace the mailbox. A little color goes a long way.

Lighten up! Make sure your outside lights work and are on in case someone drives by, especially during the winter months when it gets dark earlier. Also, consider installing some lights along the walkways for an added touch.

These are just a few of the ways you can make sure your house makes a good first impression. If you are trying to sell your home, contact one of our real estate agents in Perdido Key to help you along the way!
