Curb Appeal Mistakes Chetek WI Home Sellers Should Avoid

There’s no doubt about it, spring is a great time to consider selling your Chetek WI home. The market is heating up again and with buyer demand growing, chances are improving for you to receive an offer you can’t refuse. But that doesn’t mean it will be easy for every homeowner in Northwestern Wisconsin! Remember, first impressions are everything and if your curb appeal leaves much to be desired, you could risk turning off buyers altogether.

Below are three curb appeal mistakes for Chetek home sellers to avoid this spring:

Visible trash
When you’re selling your home, curb appeal makes a big impact! However, when your trash cans are visible or you have old furniture waiting outside for pick-up, a buyer’s perception of the property tends to decrease drastically. Try to keep your trash cans out of sight during the duration of your listing and keep the curb as clean and clear as possible.

The outside doesn’t match the inside
Even if the inside of your Chetek area home is perfect, buyers won’t be able to fully envision themselves living there if the outside is in disarray. Don’t be too quick to jump into listing your home before the necessary work has been done, including giving the outside a facelift— even if it’s just mowing the lawn or painting the shutters!

Crowding the porch
You may not have a porch per se, but the entryway of your home will be a major focal point for buyers. If yours is full of decor, lawn gnomes, planters and statues, buyers could easily turn away from the clutter alone. Clean up your home’s entry and consider paring down decor to just two planters flanking the door or a single wreath.
