First Impressions – How to Sell Your Home Fast

First Impressions – How to Sell Your Home Fast


By Ann Norton from Hackenberg Realty Group

“What can I do to make my home seller faster?” It’s a question all home sellers ask, while all home buyers ask “Why is this home priced so high?”

It can be difficult to know where to start if you’re looking for a small project to do before you list your home.  What do buyers want? What will hardwood floors give me in value? Do buyers even want that?

If you want to make potential buyers knock on your door first, it’s important to invest in the right projects.  I would love to help point you in the right direction.  Here are is some great information from Dave Ramsey’s website.

You Get One Shot at a Good First Impression

Do you believe in love at first sight?  Most home buyers do! If they don’t like what they see when they pull in into your driveway, it’s likely they won’t make it inside.

If you’re thinking of selling take a look of some of these ideas to spruce up your curb appeal, consider these updates:

Manufactured Stone Veneer
If you have existing vinyl on your home’s exterior, replacing it with manufactured stone veneer makes the elegance factor go way up.
$7,519 93%
New Garage Doors
Nothing says your home has been well kept like pristine garage doors. Go with something neutral and sleek that matches your home’s exterior.
$1,652 91.5%
Steel Front Door
A fresh front door can make a great first impression on potential home buyers. Feeling a little fun? Paint it a bold, eye-catching color!
$1,335 91%
Attic Insulation
It may not be an update home buyers see as soon as they walk in the front door, but it’s one of the few projects that actually pays even more than the cost.
$1,268 117%
Minor Kitchen Remodel
Want to get a good return on kitchen renovations? Here’s the key: don’t overdo it. Instead of trying to turn your space into a high-end gourmet kitchen, stick to modernizing outdated features like cabinets, counters, appliances and paint colors.

Basement Remodel
Basement remodels have a high price tag, but they can pay off when it’s time to sell. Finish out your space with a living area and extra bedroom and bath, and you’ve got a dream mother-in-law or teen suite.
