Maintaining an attractive, well-kept exterior for your condo complex can translate directly to more sales from interested buyers. Curb appeal for a condo works just like curb appeal for a single-family home as the first impression people get when they drive up to a property. If the lawn is well-manicured, the mulch is fresh, the flowers are colorful, the siding is power washed and the windows are clean, this makes people think: Hey, I could live here!
It also demonstrates the pride you have in your property, giving people confidence that the interior is just as nice and well maintained.
But curb appeal doesn’t just happen. You need someone fueling it, someone you can trust for regular exterior maintenance that will reflect well on you. For that, rely on a contractor well versed in exterior maintenance for condos.
Not a Condo, But a Product
When selling a condominium unit, it is no longer a home, but a product, points out CooperatorNews. Buyers have already made up their minds about your property about 10 seconds after seeing it for the first time. During those 10 seconds, you have to make the best first impression possible or they will go elsewhere.
Curb appeal also helps to make your condo stand apart from other condos in the area. Showcasing what you have will also serve to highlight what the competition doesn’t have. Curb appeal will show potential buyers that you care about the property and care for it well, something they can expect after becoming owners.
When they see optimal upkeep and pride, they know they won’t have to do much work themselves upon move-in. Nobody wants a fixer-upper that they have to pour a lot of time and money into.
While the big things, like landscaping and power washed siding, all make a huge difference in curb appeal, don’t forget about the little things that contribute to the overall look and feel too. The entry way should be neat and tidy, the deck should be recently painted or stained, gutters should be cleaned out, there should be a welcome mat in place, and even the house numbers should be polished up and clearly on display.
Front door screens should be free of holes and the door itself should be freshly painted or cleaned with no scuff marks. Adding some flowers and trimming the bushes always helps in season. The bottom line is, you want to make it as appealing as possible so buyers can picture themselves living there.
