Are you planning to take advantage of the current sellers market and list your home in the near future? When selling your home, it is important to remember that curb appeal can make or break the interest of a potential buyer. The outside of the home is the first glance for a potential buyer when scrolling on a real estate website or doing a drive by through local neighborhoods. An attractive and well-maintained exterior of your home can not only increase interest, but can potentially increase the value of your home as well.
Ways to Improve Your Curb Appeal
Improving the curb appeal to your home doesn’t need to be costly. Taking the time to make some minor adjustments and improvements can add value to your home. Here are some of our suggestions:
Gather your family members and spend the day outdoors doing some spring cleaning in your yard. Pick up any sticks or branches from winter storms, trim overgrown bushes, rake any remaining leaves, and replenish your mulch beds. A freshly kept yard is always a pleasure to see and allows potential buyers to see that the exterior of your home is well maintained.
Plant Some Color
There is nothing like some fresh flowers to add a beautiful pop of color to the exterior of your home. Whether you have flower beds or container pots it is a great idea to choose some in season blooms to plant. It is best to choose whatever goes with the scheme of your home.
Touch Up Paint
If you notice that the paint on your front door, the window trim, or anything on the exterior is faded or peeling, we suggest putting a fresh coat of paint to liven up the appearance. This is a relatively inexpensive cost that can give great return.
