3 Ways Your Home Can Make A Good First Impression

We all know that first impressions are important. When you’re selling your home, a good first impression can make all the difference in attracting the right buyer at the right price.


If you’re thinking of selling your home, make sure your home is making a good first impression in these three ways:


1. Online

In this day and age, most people start their search for a home online — but it’s not enough just to have your home listed on the internet. Make sure you have good, high-quality, professional photos taken of your home, so they can be shared online. If you have low-quality photos that make your home look dark and dreary, it’s more likely that potential homebuyers will scroll past your listing.


2. Outside

Once you’ve attracted potential homebuyers with your high-quality photos online, it’s important that your home makes a good first impression when they come for a viewing. You want to ensure that your home looks inviting and welcoming. Make sure the sidewalk and walkways are shoveled in the winter, the grass is cut in the summer, and the outside is generally tidy and well-kept. The goal is that, when potential homebuyers step out of their car, they can picture making your house their next home.


3. Inside

It’s not enough to ensure the outside of your home looks tidy; you’ll want to make sure your home makes a good first impression as potential homebuyers open the door. Remove piles of shoes and coats from the entryway, make sure your home smells clean upon entering, and try to make your space attractive to anyone who enters your home from the second they walk through the door.
