So you’re selling your home. Of course, you want to do everything possible to sell it quick, and for as much as you can get. So why not do what you can to achieve that end result?
So mow your lawn… a lot!
This Home Seller Tip can affect the first impression a buyer has of your home! When a buyer first drives up to your house for their scheduled viewing, the very first thing they see, and the first impression they have of the condition of your home, is the front landscaping.
Take advantage of this initial impression and make sure your lawn is always mowed, manicured and looking its best! This home seller tip is simple in concept: mow your lawn a lot!
But the key is consistency. When you are selling your home, you never really know when a buyer or their agent will surprise you and ask for a quick showing. Many times you just won’t have a chance to get to the yard work before they get there. And you don’t want to delay the showing for any length of time either. Good, qualified buyers are lost that way.
If you currently let your grass get nice and shaggy before you mow, mow earlier than that so the grass is always curt and clean. If you already mow your lawn once a week, consider doing it twice a week. The point is to always have it done so when a buyer does view the home the yard looks great, all the time, every time. And if you only have short notice for a showing appointment, your lawn, and your home, will already look fantastic when the buyer gets there.
And let’s face it. A just-mowed and edged lawn can really impress. Isn’t that the emotion you want buyers to have just as they’re coming through the front door?
