Curb Appeal

Judgements are made long before
potential buyers even step foot
in the house for sale.

Neighborhood nuances, street signs, cable wires, satellite dishes, noise level and the appearance of concrete and exterior listing and landscaping. Flowers and shrubs say a lot but there’s way more to it than that! What’s the parking situation? What conclusions can be made about overall safety and privacy? These are all factors that are considered within the first five seconds of driving up or walking up to a property for sale.

Simply put, the exterior of your home could matter as much as the interior of your home. When clients ask for these additional services, I assemble a hardworking team of craftsmen, artisans and experienced landscape designers to get work done at a reasonable rate and on time. These items could include tasks such as:

  • Exterior painting
  • Drainage systems replacement
  • Site Clearing
  • Landscape design, management, installation and maintenance
  • Hardscape design
  • Outdoor living space design
  • Seeding/Mulching/Stone work
  • Hedge trimming
  • Brick/Paver installation
  • Driveway renovation/installation
  • Minor tree work
  • Aesthetic improvements and or accessorizing pool or sun-bathing areas
  • Lighting (on home and walkway areas)
  • Water features
  • Outdoor deck staining and/or small repairs
  • Potted plants and flowers serving as visual ambiance/enhancements
  • Garden work/enhancements

Cost:
$75./hr. (Costs TBD – Based on tailored needs – roughly $ .40/SF.)

Deliverable:
Most clients who have me stage their home also hire me to provide an audit and make recommendations for the exterior of the property as well. The deliverable here would be an overhaul of not only the home’s interior areas but also improvements to the outside of the property as well. I serve as a Project Manager and track all activity and vendors so that you don’t have to! All third-party vendors issue contracts to the client are paid directly by the client.
This inside and out transformation total approach will get your home sold fast.

Why clients like it:
A lot of people have allocated a budget for exterior repairs and upgrades but just aren’t sure about real estate ROI. I know where dollars are more weighty and can help you earmark your allocation in a smart and strategic way so that your investment pays off and your home gets sold!
