You’ve no doubt been told many times that curb appeal is important. The impression that potential buyers form as they approach your House For Sale in Los Angeles will carry through and affect everything they see inside.
That initial impression sets an expectation, and their minds will seek out details that support that expectation.
Thus, you keep the lawn mowed, plant flowers, straighten the fence, scrub the driveway, and put away all the excess “stuff” that can accumulate outside. If needed, you’ve repainted the trim and possibly even installed a new entry door. You may have purchased a new welcome mat and placed a tub of bright flowers near the entry of your soon to be House For Sale in Los Angeles.
Have you checked the light fixture next to the door?
Oddly, this is one detail that homeowners often overlook, and it does make an impression.
If yours is an older home, that fixture may be sadly outdated. It may also look a bit “weather worn” from being out in the elements for several years.
A new fixture will make a world of difference in the impression a potential buyer gets as he or she approaches the house – especially when it’s an evening visit, and especially if that old fixture does an inadequate job of lighting the entry.
If yours is a newer House For Sale in Los Angeles, you still need to give some attention to that light fixture. It may be dusty, and depending upon the style, it may be littered with dead bugs. So – wash the glass, polish the metal, and install a bright new light bulb.
Details count, so before you say “We’re ready” for potential buyers, check that light fixture!
