Clean Exteriors Can Lead to Improved Home Sales
By Tony Creighton
As the saying goes, “first impressions stick” — and there is nowhere that is more evident than when a home is on the market.
The very first impression is often the one that stays with prospective buyers, and a home covered in dirt or algae usually doesn’t stand a chance. Indeed, when a home does not look clean, nothing else seems quite right.
A SoftWash of your home’s exterior siding, stucco or brick, driveway and walkway surfaces increases the home’s value because it removes dirt, grime, mold, mud, algae and other organic growth and materials. By so doing, it increases the aesthetic value of the house, making it visually appealing to the buyers.
Additionally, a clean home exterior will give prospective buyers the impression that your home has been well maintained. You as a Realtor or seller are communicating to prospective buyers that your home is worth the time, effort and money you’ve put into it through regular care and maintenance. It can greatly add to the value of your home.
Given all the advantages of pressure washing, Realtors and homeowners must consider hiring professional pressure washing companies if they want to increase their curb appeal and subsequently the value of their property.
Selling a house at the highest possible value is not an easy task and requires your full attention to detail. The exterior parts of the house, such as the roof, siding, driveway/walkway and patio surfaces are the focal points of the entire house; without an appealing curb aesthetic, prospective buyers might never even make it inside to see the rest of your home.
Professional cleaners are trained to use the proper equipment, techniques and detergents to ensure the highest-quality cleaning of your home’s exterior surfaces. By using a professional pressure washing company, you’re guaranteeing that your home will receive the highest-quality clean while also ensuring that no damage is done to its surfaces.
Everyone loves a clean environment. Pressure washing makes the house exterior clean and helps the prospective buyers feel that the house is the best of one for them. You can easily move into a pressure-washed house and settle down faster than in one that has not been pressure-washed.
Indeed, buying a dirty house when clean ones exist beats logic, and that is why pressure-washed houses normally sell faster.
