There is much discussion about what, we, in real estate, refer to, as curb appeal, but, very little, detail, or reasons, as to why, this is such an essential consideration, in terms of, precisely, how important, and why, this is so! We need to carefully examine, and review, what potential, qualified buyers, see, from the CURB, in order to use, this concept, to the homeowner’s best avail! Although, this is important and essential, I have come, to realize, in my, well over a decade, as a Real Estate Licensed Salesperson, in the State of New York, far too often, this key consideration, is, either, overlooked, and/ or, neglected. With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why, it matters.
1. Clear; create; character; closer: When marketing and selling a house, one of the key components, is to attract qualified, potential buyers, to take a closer look, and seriously, consider, the house, as a candidate, to become their future home! Enhancing curb appeal, helps to create, a more motivating, inspiring, image, to take a further look! How can you, show – off, the best features, and character, of a house, if you can’t get them, to come in? When the house, is clear of distractions, etc, more people will take a look!
2. Uses; useful; urgent; usual/ unusual; unique: Eliminating distractions lets you, demonstrate the positive, useful, uses, and strong – points, of a particular property! When it is clutter, and distraction – free, it’s easier to make an urgent appeal, to prospective buyers! When the curb appeal, is a positive one, it makes it possible to demonstrate, both, the usual, as well as unusual, best features!
3. Relevant; realistic; responsive; reasonable: Instead of making a bad, first impression, make it possible, to provide a more realistic perspective, in a relevant way! Making something relevant to buyers, and doing so, simply, by taking some reasonable steps, makes, sense! Doesn’t it?
4. Benefits; bring; better; best: One can use better marketing, when curb appeal, becomes a positive, rather than negative, and/ or, neutral one! If you want to bring, the best results, you will need, to clearly, demonstrate, the benefits, of your home!
Don’t neglect, or overlook, CURB appeal, if you hope, to make the selling process, for your home, the best and most beneficial! Will you proceed, wisely, and carefully?
