When presenting your home for sale, the value of curb appeal can't be emphasized enough. Here are some ways to shine a light on your selling opportunity.

Illuminated address sign. Make your address easy to find with an illuminated address sign or at least a spotlight shining on your house number.

LIGHT

This is a great idea even if you're not selling your home, as it allows everyone, from the pizza delivery person to emergency first responders, to find you quickly and easily.A well-lit path. Once the potential buyer finds your house, make sure their trip to the front door is clear and well lit. This is an attractive feature that also doubles as a safety measure for both you and your visitors, who need a clear view and safe access to your home's entrance.

Highlighted Landscaping. A lot of time and money goes into creating a beautiful lawn and garden. Consider how to best highlight your outdoor efforts using uplights to illuminate trees from below, and quality solar lights to cast a magical glow to the garden.

ln many cases, the evening hours are the only time available for potential buyers to view your property. Make sure you present your home in the best possible light with attractive path, patio and landscape lighting systems, no matter what time of day it is.

NOT TAKING EARLY OFFERS SERIOUSLY

Sellers often assume early offers are the first of many, or think they've priced too low when offers come quickly. So they wait. But offers decrease, in frequency and price, the longer a property's on market. That's why early offers are typically the best. Buyers who jump on Your listing early are motivated - exactly the kind you want.
