Trying to Sell? Get Some Curb Appeal

Home sellers take note, a recent survey of almost 500 real estate agents indicates the importance of curb appeal in selling a home.

According to the Real Estate Agent Community Trends survey, 82 percent of real estate pros polled said buyers unimpressed with a home’s exterior will not want to look inside. The results also found that 90 percent of respondents said a sale depends on first impressions of the front entry, while 91 percent said the home’s exterior is just as important as what is inside.

Additionally, 75 percent of those surveyed said natural light is important; while the appearance of windows and doors and the presence of energy-efficient products were mentioned by 71 percent and 63 percent, respectively.

Universal design features like open floor plans and modern kitchens are gaining in popularity as well, according to 65 percent of the agents surveyed.
