Does Curb Appeal Add to Home Value in the Kansas City Metro Area?

May 24, 2019

Most real estate professionals will tell you that curb appeal – defined by Merriam-Webster as “the visual attractiveness of a house as seen from the street” – will most certainly contribute to the price a home will fetch on the market, as well as to how fast that home is likely to sell. You could think of curb appeal as the first impression your home will make on potential buyers, and we all know how important first impressions are.

In fact, when you think back to when you bought your home, what was the first thing that appealed to you? When you pulled up in front of the house, were you pleased with the way it looked? Did the attractive exterior appearance encourage you to explore the home’s indoors? Chances are, if you bought your home in recent years, you saw it first in photos that were presented online. And the series of photos you saw likely started with an exterior view of the front of the home. That’s no accident. Although it’s important for a home’s interior to look attractive to potential buyers, many real estate professionals put exterior home upgrades at the top of the list of things to do when getting a home ready for the market.

Our Customers LOVE The Results

Johnson County Siding & Window Co.
"The whole team was awesome. Justin was super helpful in helping us pick windows and answered all our questions. We had the whole house done and the installation crew were professional and hardworking. We noticed a difference right away with how quiet the windows made the house. We also noticed that the house has a more even temperature between levels. I am excited to go into winter now with a great set of windows that are so easy to use and with quality installation that will last.”

"It was a most pleasant experience to work with Johnson County Siding and Windows for the replacement of a few windows in our home. Bill Christie came and gave us a price. No glib, "well this is what it cost, but we can do it for this if you pay cash right now ..., but, no, wait, we can do this, if you hurry ... " He sold his product, and company, with pride and experience. The team to install, lead by Justin, arrived early on the appointed day. They went right to work and completed the task in due order, answering any questions we could have, and explaining the total function of the system. They cleaned up after themselves, and left the windows shining! What a day! Thank you Bill, Justin, William and Brian!”
