If you are thinking of selling your Incline Village, NV real estate this summer, one of the best ways to get started is by sprucing up your property. Both indoors, and out. With Lake Tahoe so focused on taking advantage of the outdoors, creating curb appeal and an outdoor living space is just as important as making sure the inside is clean and spacious. Looking for some affordable tips to spruce up the exterior of your home? Check out these tips.
This doesn’t require thousands of dollars and professionals if you don’t want it to. While some properties may require this, most will not. Start with the basics: Clean up pine needles, pine cones and left over foliage from the winter. Want to add a pop of color but need to be on a budget? Shop Amazon or discount retailers for potted plants and then create your own arrangements where they will have the most impact for first time visitors. Remove old decorations, rusted or faded yard décor and add some lush plants where necessary. When prospective buyers visit homes for sale in Incline Village, NV, they want to be drawn inside. If the outside looks good, they will feel enticed to see what else the property has to offer.
Do some touch ups
Is the paint chipped? The mail box crooked? The house needs new numbers? Do the exterior lights work? One of these things isn’t a huge issue, but all of these things together can give off the impression the Incline Village, NV real estate in question hasn’t been well maintained. Fix the mail box, give it a fresh coat of paint, touch up the house paint in the areas needed, or even consider a whole new paint job if it is in the budget. This will make a big impact on buyers looking for homes for sale in Incline Village, NV.
Create an outdoor living space
When it is nice in Lake Tahoe, people want to be outdoors. Whether it is relaxing with a good book, catching up with an old friend or entertaining a large group, creating a living space outside is important. If your Incline Village, NV real estate happens to be a condo, your exterior spaces may be limited or you may have some HOA rules to abide by. If you don’t know what they are, find out. If the spaces are small, get creative. Find smaller outdoor furniture to create a cute sitting area outside. Not enough space for chairs or tables? Give the area some functionality to show off what can be done with it. If you have quite a bit of space, consider a new patio set, outdoor lounge area, hanging swing, white string lights or lawn games. People will look forward to spending time and creating memories there.
