Preparing The Outside of Your Ottawa Home

If you’re trying to sell your Ottawa home, it can be a very stressful time. To attract home buyers to your property, here are a few affordable tips you can follow to make the exterior of your home more attractive.

A Fresh Coat of Paint

Sometimes all you need to do is add a little color to the front of your house. You don’t necessarily have to spend thousands of dollars having the exterior of your house painted. In fact, you can brighten up the front of your home by adding a new coat of paint to the front door or front porch.

Brighten Up Your Ottawa Home

To keep your home from looking drab, spray down the siding of your home with water to bring out the color. If you find mold or mildew growing on the outside of your home, especially if there is a noticeable odor, you can often clean it yourself with a diluted bleach solution (one cup of bleach to one gallon of water.)

Can Homebuyers See Your Ottawa Home from the Street?

The goal of selling your Ottawa home is to get it noticed. Overgrown bushes, trees and even large vehicles can block your home and ultimately discourage buyers. Trim or cut back plants, mow the lawn and rake leaves to encourage potential home buyers to take a look.

Clean Up the Clutter

Homes that appear neat and tidy are more likely to get a home buyer’s attention. You don’t want to have a yard full of debris or a porch covered with kids’ toys and cleaning supplies. If you have a porch, take the time to make it appear like a relaxed, comfortable space.
