Stouffville Mobile Redimix weighs in on the importance of curb appeal.

The article begins by expressing if you are in the process of flipping a property or selling your home and want to receive the best offer, renovations or minor touch-ups are encouraged. However, not every room needs attention. Barbara Corcoran suggests focusing on areas that grab immediate attention. One main area is the exterior part of the home. Pat from Stouffville Mobile Redimix agrees, “as the article mentions, the first part of the home a visitor sees is the exterior. Many of our clients who are renovating or are looking to sell their homes ask for concrete pouring solutions to address their front yard. Depending on the size, we suggest solutions such as retaining walls or adding a courtyard. Even redoing the driveway or walkway makes a huge difference and gives the home a much-needed facelift.”
To encourage a sale, the home needs to make a great first impression. Sean Conlon expresses street presence is important. The front entrance of a home should be captivating and beautiful, “Your shrubs should be nice and colorful and well taken care of. … Your shutters and windows should look nice. When people pull up, they should go, ‘I could picture myself pulling up in the evening and this being my home.” Having a home that stands out from the rest must have extra charm and aesthetic appeal to draw the buyer in. Pat agrees, “when selling a home, the buyer must feel comfortable and picture themselves and their family living there. If main features like a driveway or walkway need to be redone, that may deter the buyer and influence their decision. Most buyers, especially first-time buyers, want a turnkey property. They want their home to be move-in ready. A buyer should not have to worry about renovations when their focus should be moving in and enjoying their new home. Redimix concrete delivery is the quickest way to get the job done. Here at SMR, our concrete pouring professionals have extensive experience and will ensure your home is ready for its new owners”.
When selling a home, many details must be considered. As Barbara suggested earlier in the article, a few main features should be listed as a priority. Some rooms or details can be left out completely or can be addressed at a later date. If you are in the process of making these important decisions, take note of a few key areas that could use an adjustment. However, make sure you include the exterior as being number one on that list. Sidney Torres says, “Curb appeal is everything when you’re trying to sell a home,” and continues to say, “because that’s the first thing [buyers] see to get interested.” Pat agrees, “it would be a shame to go through major cosmetic interior renovations if you cannot get a potential buyer through the door. At Stouffville Mobile Redimix, we can share our expertise on which areas could use redimix concrete and how to make your home stand out from the crowd to draw in a potential buyer.”
