Tips for Staging the Exterior of Your Home

Did you ever stop to really think about how the exterior of you home can be a real turnoff to potential buyers even if it just needs some minor sprucing up?

Take a look at these before and after pictures of the same house.  You will notice how small changes can make a huge difference in curb appeal. Something as simple as paint can make this look like an entirely different house.  You will also notice that the roof color has been changed.

I’m not suggesting everyone needs to put a new roof on their home.  However if you know that your roof is old and will certainly become an issue in a home inspection for your new buyers, go ahead and replace it.  You will recoup that investment in a couple of ways.


You do want to sell your Louisville house fast right?

First and foremost, this is now a house with a brand new roof. This is money the new buyers don’t have to come out of pocket for soon after they buy your Louisville house.  Secondly, when it comes to instant curb appeal it’s a real winner.  This is a case where staging the exterior of home home will pay big dividends without a doubt.

Be sure to keep the new color scheme in mind when choosing the color of the roof.  What was popular and trendy 20 years ago is probably different from today. The same is true of your new exterior paint colors.  You want everything to have a coordinated look.
