Five Important Exterior Upgrades to Make Before Selling Your Home

When you are selling your home, don’t forget to add some sparkle and shine to the outside of your house to make a great first impression! Here are five important exterior upgrades to make to increase your home’s curb appeal that won’t break the bank AND will give you a great return for your investment:

Five Important Exterior upgrades

  1. Power wash the outside of your house. You’ll be amazed at what a difference this makes!
  2. Professionally clean your windows and screens.
  3. Repair siding or decking on the house, and re-paint or re-stain if it looks dingy and weather-worn.
  4. Spruce up the yard with colorful flowers and shrubs, edge the lawn, and trim trees, including removing dead limbs for a tidier look.
  5. Re-paint your front door. Use a color that is different from your neighbor’s across the street.  If your front door has no window, consider replacing with a front door that allows additional light into your home.

How We Buy Scary Houses You Don't Think Will Sell

Scary houses are no problem for us! We love houses that need work, are vacant, or are just plain distressed. In fact, we specialize in purchasing homes that the average buyer won’t touch.

As a real estate investment firm, KBN Homes, LLC has several creative ways to buy homes that also help YOU meet your goal of getting paid to sell your client’s home! Here are the three most common:

  1. Cash purchase. Yes, cold, hard, real cash! This allows you and the seller to close fast, usually within 7-10 days for qualifying properties.
  2. Joint venture. We partner with the homeowner to clean up and fix major issues so they can realize a higher sales price.
  3. Owner sells the home to us on terms. Generally we can pay more for the house if the owner is open to getting a higher price over time.

How do you get paid? We simply add your commission/referral fee to the transaction!

If you have a scary house in your portfolio now, or if you come across one, contact us! We’d love to help you grow your business while making neighborhoods great again!
