Three well-known US residential real estate experts agree on the #1 way to interest buyers in your home and get it off the market quickly. Think you can guess their chief recommendation? If you think it’s a gorgeous chef’s kitchen or a remodeled ensuite master bath you’re wrong. They say, and we agree, that sellers must focus on curb appeal to attract buyers and decrease the time a home stays on market.
Why is this so important? It all boils down to first impressions. If a buyer can’t see themselves living in your home when they first “meet it” it’s going to be a hard sell. Maybe you’re thinking that you can dazzle them once they see your spiffy interior. Think again, friends. According to Barbara Corcoran, a real estate master and Shark Tank investor, sellers have to come to terms with the habits of real estate buyers. She says, “Realize that the buyer walks in and judges that house within 30 seconds.”
That’s not a lot of time! With a market as robust as ours in the Northern Virginia, you don’t want to lose out to another seller who has spent time and money on maximizing curb appeal.
