DC Realtor Tips: Make a Great First Impression for Your Home

Want to get the most for your Washington DC home? Follow these tips from Realtor Michelle Buckman to improve your home’s curb appeal, and make a great first impression with buyers.

The Yard

  • Stay on top of your lawn mowing and maintenance, and tidy up the landscaping.
  • Plant colorful flowers
  • Move all the toys, bicycles, and scooters away from the front of the house.

The Front Door

  • Embellish your door area with a nice, big potted plant to the side of the front door.
  • Create a little seating area in the yard or on the front porch.
  • Add a new, colorful welcome mat in front of the door.
  • Invest in a new doorknob and lock—this will jazz up your door and provide greater security.
  • Place a seasonal wreath or arrangement on your door.
  • Make sure the doorbell is in working order.

The House

  • Make sure your street numerals are polished and in place. Or, invest in a nice new set that stands out among your neighbors' standard numerals.
  • Repair any loose shingles—the last thing a potential buyer wants to worry about is the roof.
  • Paint and repair your gutters.
  • Clean all your windows until they're sparkling.
