Down Economy and Real Estate

admin on August 13, 2010 in Articles

So we are in a down economy and real estate prices have tanked into double digits in the last few years. If you are trying to sell your house what are you going to do? There are a lot of houses on the market right now and that includes a boat load of foreclosures. If the competition is so stiff for selling a home and your having trouble finding a buyer, you might want to try and do something that makes you stand out. There are a lot of different ways to make your home stand out above the rest and the most overlooked and easiest to remedy is curb appeal. You can learn more at If the buyer can’t get passed the first impression than you will lose them immediately. Tidy up the outside, mow your lawn, trim your bushes, run the edger to make clean lines, add some fresh flowering plants to make the outside look warm and friendly. If you don’t have landscaping, then I would suggest you get some. You should be able to cover the cost of the landscaping in the sale of your house. If you have leaves on the ground, rake them up or sweep them away. I have even seen a service that will paint your lawn green to give it that clean fresh look of a healthy lawn. If you need to do some touch up paint then make that happen.

These are little things that can make a world of difference in selling your home and making it stand out above the rest. You have to make sure they remember your house when there are so many to choose from. So think to yourself what you can do to make your house memorable. You will be glad you did when that contract that you have been waiting for finally arrives.
