There’s an old adage in real estate that “you only need one buyer” when you’re trying to help someone sell a property. And while that’s true, when the selection of Jupiter Florida homes for sale is wider and that “one buyer” has more to choose from — particularly in real estate developments like Admiral’s Cove and Jonathan’s Landing — it’s often difficult to make your home stand out above the others.
We’ve helped a lot of people with Jupiter homes for sale find buyers over the years, and while there’s a lot to be said for recent selling trends like home staging and “round robin” showings, there’s also a lot to be said for sticking with the fundamentals — in this case we’re talking about curb appeal, and that first impression you never get a second chance with.
This means in a luxury development where every home looks great, you need to make your home look fantastic. Start with the front yard — the curb — and move back. Have you had excess branches trimmed from trees and bushes lately? Are there leaves or other debris in your front yard, perhaps accumulating around walkways and flower beds? And are there blooming flowers in every bed?
How’s the lawn look? More than just well-trimmed, it needs to be green and lush; if you’ve got areas that are anything less than perfect, it’s time to re-seed or re-sod.
What about your driveway and pathways? Make sure there are no cracks or crooked pavers, and check to see if flagstone areas are level and well-cleaned. Professional power washing companies can restore concrete and stone to look practically like-new if they’re not damaged; do everything you can to make sure your home looks its best, so buyers remember it!
