First impressions are everything. If the curb appeal, or the visual attractiveness from the street, isn’t positive, then potential buyers won’t take the next step. After all, the aesthetic look of a home’s exterior can be very telling of what someone can expect to find on the other side of the front door. At the very least, the exterior will determine whether or not buyers even want to take a look inside.
For years, buyers formed their first impressions of homes while standing in the street or sitting inside the car, just beyond the curb. To get that buyer in the door, the seller spent hours, even days, seeding new grass and planting flowers, painting their front door, mulching, weeding and cleaning up the yard. If the home didn’t appeal from the curb, buyers moved on to the next house. Curb appeal was always the single most important piece of the home sale puzzle. Today, it’s a different story.
Now most buyers form first impressions while perusing online photos, which means curb appeal isn’t just about the home’s exterior. Instead of driving to the home, buyers scroll through pictures of both the outside and the inside sitting at their computer or their phone, before ever stepping foot inside. What’s more, they may never visit the house if they don’t like what they see online.
And believe us, we here at Curbio understand this all too well. After all, our name Curbio stands for “Curb Appeal, Inside and Out.”
