Curb Appeal. At least that is what they called it a few years ago. It was the ability that your home had to make a casual driver who was going by on their way home from work (or wherever) STOP the car and be interested in your home. If your home had it, it was a great thing!  

It has always been important and still is. Having an attractive home with good "curb appeal" helps your home possibly sell for more and in less time. But let's talk about the 2014 version of it. INTERNET curb appeal. Do you know how to make a person browsing the internet STOP and be interested in your home on the market? We do. 

Here are a couple of tips for increasing your internet curb appeal:

First (and most important), is taking GREAT photos. Seriously. You want to make sure that you take pprofessional quality shots with great lighting that present your home in the best way possible. Take a look here on EddyKicker.com at the homes currently on the market in Greenville. Look in your price range and you will see more than a few that have less than desirable photos. Don't let your home be one of those.

Secondly, if you want your home to be the first one seen when people search on the internet, make sure you price it at an even number in $25,000 increments. Do you know why? It is because real estate websites typically have menus that break prices down in $25,000 increments...and the difference in exposure between a home that is price at $199,500 and $200,000 can be a significant one. Especially if there are many other homes in that price range. A home listed at $200,000 even often will get twice the exposure because it will be on the first page when someone searches for a home rather than on the second or third page of the results.

These are just a couple of ways for you to increase the internet curb appeal of your home. We have others. We use technology and marketing to help your home get the exposure online that it richly deserves.
