How to Sell your Condo and Buy a House: CURB APPEAL AND LANDSCAPING
Unlike a condo, the curb appeal of a house can dramatically affect its value.
A house with a good curb appeal will attract a lot of interest from buyers. Afterall, a buyerâ€™s first impression of a house is usually made before they ever enter the property. Everyone likes a pretty house, but when buying a house itâ€™s important to always look past the appearance to the details.
For a great buy, look for a renovated house with bad curb appeal. This type of house is often overlooked by buyers and can sometimes be a good way to find a bargain in a competitive market. A significant increase in curb appeal can often be achieved with minimal cost. A fresh coat of paint, some new plants, new lighting, and some basic landscaping call all be done for a few hundred dollars but the added value can be worth thousands.
I wanted to show you this house which is right across the street from Monarch Park here on the Danforth. This house has great curb appeal. Notice the attention to detail on the porch, the fresh colours and tones, the cedar shake siding, sleek black roof, and the beautiful landscaping and stone work. This is a house that anyone would love to come home to and one that if it were on the market, would generate top dollars.
