The housing market is looking good as more people are placing their homes on the market.  But with all that competition how can you make your stand out from the pack?  While it takes 7 second for a person to get a first impression of you, potential property owners judge properties in just one tenth of a second!  To help you with your quest to maximize that sliver of a second, here are some things you can do to have the best-looking house on the street. Lighting can make or break a home and home buyers do make drive-bys at night to look at properties.  So replace that overhead porch light with a pendant light or upgrade your wall sconce lights. Illuminate them with a warm tone of light and make sure they are working. You might not think a doormat would add value to your property but it can help to create a warm and inviting welcome. Find a doormat that suits the style of your home made from hemp or jute with a pattern that pops and for heaven’s sake, skip the cheap plastic doormat! Don't be afraid to add a pop of color to the front door or entry. Look to your landscaping for inspiration as to a color palette and go with a complementary hue. Spruce up your entry with some plants. Hanging baskets, which can add depth and dimension to a property. Finally and quote possibly the most important aspect to make your house pop to a buyer, make sure your house number is visible. Finding the house day or night is key to your visitors' experience, so don't hide your number behind a hedge, and instead think about whether you'll place it near the door or next to the mailbox at the gate. Ask any realtor, tiny details equal more value.
