View Your Home from a Buyer’s Perspective

If you want to sell your home, it helps to put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. Walk across the street, take a good look at your home, and ask yourself the following questions:

1. What’s your first impression of your home?
2. What are your home’s best features? Are there ways to enhance them?
3. Which features should be minimized or improved?

Your home’s street-view appearance is a buyer’s first in-person impression, particularly if they spotted your home on the Internet first. Although photographs can give a buyer an idea of the features the home offers, driving by the property provides an opportunity to see how the pieces work together with the surrounding neighborhood.

Many homebuyers drive by a home or schedule a walk-through after viewing it on the Web. Since many will do so in the evening after work, consider installing lights along your driveway and walkway or adding a decorative light fixture to the front of the home.
