In a seller’s market, like the one Colorado is experiencing right now, investing in your curb appeal may mean more money in your pocket. Having an attractive, well maintained exterior has been proven to increase a homes value. A 2019 HomeLight survey found that the return on investment for performing exterior improvements was approximately 51%.
Does your outside tell a story of what’s inside?
Curb appeal is the first impression a buyer will experience before an in-person visit. The cosmetic look of a homes exterior sets an initial expectation for what will be found inside. If nothing else, your homes exterior may determine whether a buyer even wants to make a visit.
