If you’re selling your home, you know the typical advice:
- Add a coat of paint
- Take down family photos
- Keep your lawn tidy
- Mop your floors
But, as we all know, the housing market has gotten a little out of hand lately and sticking with the basics probably won’t cut it anymore. Its time to think outside the box to make your home desirable to others.
One extra step you should take is getting your driveway sealed.
A fresh, jet black driveway instantly boosts the curb appeal of your home, making it significantly more attractive to prospective buyers. A newly sealed driveway helps your home stand out from the crowd. The crisp contrast of a dark driveway, clean sidewalk and lush lawn really ties your home together into a beautiful package that everyone will want to own.
In addition to the obvious visual benefits, sealing your driveway implies that you (the current owner) genuinely care for the home and haven’t been frugal with the upkeep. No buyer wants to deal with a home that’s been neglected and abused. No one wants to buy a home, just to be left with tons of chores. Driveway sealing is an important part of home care, just like cleaning the gutters and putting down mulch.
Real estate professional Tanya Yahnke sees this firsthand. She commented, “If someone takes the time, money or effort to seal their driveway, you can be sure they take REALLY great care of their home in general…Curb appeal, home appeal, if someone doesn’t care about one, they won’t care about the other.”
