Ready to Sell: Episode #3 The Front Porch
Author Sonya Parker said this:
"Almost everyone will make a good first impression,
but only a few will make a good lasting impression."
As a home seller, it is extremely important to send the right message to your potential home-buyers from the first minute they lay eyes on your home. And not only do you want to send the right message, you want that message to last! Because of this, we suggest that you begin creating this lasting impression on the front porch.
Let's start with the welcome mat. Spend the few extra dollars to get a nice, shiny, new one that really says "Welcome to your new home." It will go a long way and will show your buyers that you care about even the smallest of details.
Next, consider the matching the decorations on your front porch to the style of home that awaits for home buyers on the inside. Some quick examples would be using ranch style decorations if you live on a farm or to use nautical decorations if you live near a lake or beach.
As the quote below suggests, this type of consistency from the outside of your home to the inside will actually help your potential homebuyer to build trust in you as the seller. This can be a tremendous quality when it comes to them picking which home to ultimately purchase.
"Consistency is an under-appreciated inspirational quality.
It's that ability to conduct yourself in a consistent, reliable
manner that others will respect and appreciate."
