When you plan to stay in your new home for years to come, you can buy just for yourself and ignore things that would otherwise make reselling the property difficult. However, if you know this home will be back on the market in a few years, you need to check different boxes on that list. Do you know you'll have to move on a tight schedule for work? That makes minding the view even more important.

A Room with a View (that you hate)

Not all homesites have the future view in mind and even those that do risk ruin by city planners adding new infrastructure to your area or new businesses opening. Here's what to avoid:

  • Railroad Tracks: Number one on many buyers "do not want" list, railroad tracks can be a huge barrier to a quick sale. Any train tracks with noisy, consistent business can be irritating to home buyers and reduce the draw for your home. If the property is walking distance from a local station with city access, however, use the local public transportation as a selling point to bring in new potential buyers. 
  • Water Towers and Wind Turbines: Unavoidable in most areas, especially those headed for greener energy or where water is scarce, the goal here is merely to avoid direct window views. If you notice one of these tall local structures blocking the homes' views, finding the house with a different perspective could be the key to your super-fast sale.
  • Power Lines: Electrical lines distract from the view similarly to wind turbines. However, there's a more sinister problem here. Many people believe that power lines emit a kind of radiation that causes health problems. Even though the American Cancer Society says that power lines emit only ELF (extremely low frequency) radiation which shouldn't cause health problems, just the belief in society can drag out your sale timeline or lower the price. 
  • Shops and Restaurants: The goal here is to be careful what businesses are nearby. Visit the property at different times of day to determine how much noise is generated by the nearby restaurants and what kinds of lights or signs might impact your view and living situation. Imposing privacy walls between your home and local businesses don't necessarily help since that can ruin the entire view without actually blocking the noise.

When you're looking at homes to purchase, make sure you check them out at a variety of times of the day. When possible, check the view from every window, both in the dark and during the day. Also, make sure you review the location on weekdays and weekends alike since the activity level of neighborhoods and businesses can change drastically.

I already bought it, what now?

Just because you didn’t consider the view when you purchased the property—or if the view has changed over the years—doesn't mean you're out of luck. You can adjust the landscape to your advantage, planting trees to add greenery while blocking a regrettable view. Be careful with power lines and trees though, planting trees that will cross over powerlines can increase maintenance costs on the property and could get you into trouble with the city or utility provider. You can even offset the sounds railroad tracks and local businesses by swapping out your windows with ones that are more sound-insulating. Or try investing in sound-proofing paints which have the added benefit of being more temperature insulating as well.

Let your real estate professional know if you plan to resell the home on a tight schedule so they can help you find the best resale property in your market.

You're selling your home, and you know you need to perk up its curb appeal, but you're low on free time and funds. There are a few simple, and affordable projects you can take on to step up your curb game and increase your chances of a sale. Attracting buyers to your home is a necessary part of your sale, so take a minute to hammer out some quick upgrades to give your home the best first impression.

Just a little paint—not a lot.Freshly painted shutters and a new coat on the front and side doors of your home can add a striking vibrancy that your potential buyers can see from the street. Visit your local hardware or paint store and talk with a professional about the best paint to cover your wood or vinyl fixtures. When selecting a color consider the best hues to pleasantly contrast or compliment your home’s exterior colors and any natural stone or brick accents. Before you start, clean off all dirt and grime from your door and shutter surfaces, tape off or remove any hardware possible, then get to painting! In just a few hours and a couple of cans of paint, you can accomplish a huge visual change.

Tighten up your existing landscaping. Take an upcoming weekend day and spend a little time manicuring your yard. Give your trees and bushes some attention, rake up the leaves and remove any dead plants. Mow and trim your lawn all the way to the curb. If there are any empty lots or uncared for median spaces near your home maybe take an extra minute and clean up the appeal around your house as well. With an additional day or another weekend, if you have time before your open house, extend your landscaping to cleaning up your driveway. Sweep the drive thoroughly and consider renting a pressure washer to remove any unsightly oil stains. Finally, get up to those gutters. Clean and well-maintained gutters are a good sign to your buyers that you care for your home and have taken the time to maintain it and keep it in good condition for future inhabitants.

Add even more life with planters and flowers. With a small investment, you can add even more color and appeal to your home with a few planters, pots, and hanging baskets. Find plants and containers that complement the design of your home and add both brightness and hominess to your street view.

Lighting and more lighting. Make it easy for your buyers to see your home and attract them to your door with enhanced lighting. Many home buyers drive past homes they see listed online before they come to the open house. Frequently this is after work and during a dusky or dark time of day. Make your window shoppers want to return for the open house with cleaned up lighting. Clean up or replace your porch light, add a new bright bulb and talk to your local hardware store about the best options for adding lighting to your drive and walkways.

As you get ready for your open house, work with your real estate professional to design the best and most cost-effective ways to step up your curb appeal.
