Outdoor Decor That Detracts From Your Home's Value

by Bettina Debrabander 12/31/2018

No doubt about it, one of the joys of home-ownership is making your abode reflect your personality. You’ve added an accent feature here and faux finishes there, trendy geometric shutters and some personal landscaping art reflect your funky nature.

You thought this was your forever home and didn’t worry about what anyone else might think about it … but now, you’re moving on and you’re worried your expressive nature might derail your home sale. Take a moment to assess which of your personal touches should stay with the house and which ones might detract from a potential buyer.

Try to walk around the exterior of your home with a critical eye:

  • Do some fencing panels need replacing? Gate hinges?
  • Check the exterior knobs. Do they all match? Are they keyed the same?
  • Are windows cracked or do any have broken seals—do they have condensation inside when the temperatures outside and inside differ?
  • Carriage and porch lights often get neglected. While you may not need to replace them, make certain they are clean and functional.

Ask a professional for guidance with questions about the exterior appeal of your home and the best practices for your home's future sale.

Thank you for visiting my website.

I am native of Germany, wife and mom to two beautiful children.
Sales was always my passion when I was working in the corporate world in Germany, Belgium and Singapore.

After our own different experiences in the Real Estate arena,  I decided to become a Realtor myself and very happy so say this Out Loud, it was the “best work related decision I have made”.
I am able to combine my sales experience with my passion for Real Estate, in finding clients their dream home.
Listening, understanding and being approachable is my mantra.

My promise to all my clients is to be honest and work hard to make their real estate dream a reality.
The life-changing experience of buying a home should not be stressful, so it is very important to work with an agent who is able to navigate the sales process and protect you as a buyer.
Similarly for a seller, good marketing and pricing strategy as well as staging your home is key to sell at the best price in the shortest possible time.
