AUSTIN, TX. – Planning on selling your home this year? You’re not alone, 2017 is shaping up to be another great year for the Austin Texas Real Estate market but before you sell your home make sure that you haven’t made these 3 curb appeal mistakes.

Mistake #1 – The Outside of Your Home Doesn’t Match What’s Inside

Yes, you may have money updating the inside of your home, but the reality is that those new updates and features mean nothing if the outside of your home still looks like it always has and now it doesn’t match up with the hard work and money that you’ve invested to upgrade the inside of your home.

To fix this mistake start focusing on improving the exterior of your home now by painting your house (if needed) and improving curb appeal by planting new flowers, cleaning up your yard and maybe painting your front door a bright color because, the first impression that buyers get of your home will motivate them to get out of their vehicles or continue driving to the next home on their lists.

Mistake #2 – The Exterior of Your House Is Half Finished

Have you started a major renovation on the exterior of your home but didn’t finish it? A half-finished house will always look like something is missing so you should take the time to finish your projects now unless you want to list your home as a potential tear-down.

Mistake #3 – Your Sense of Style May Drive Buyers Away

Last of all, but most important, you may have a wonderful sense of style and applied that style to the exterior of your home with bold colors and design elements but your sense of style could drive buyers away.

To avoid losing the interest of many potential buyers you should focus on painting the exterior of your home neutral colors and you should also stick with similar landscape design choices as other homeowners in the area.
