I talk a lot about the importance of curb appeal when you list your home for sale. And although a fresh paint job may work wonders for a home, enticing curb appeal doesn’t necessarily require all the bells, whistles and expense of a total facelift. Here are a few small changes to consider that can help your home get ready for its market debut!
Maximize Curb Appeal
Getting prospective buyers through the front door starts at the curb. Manicure the lawn, trim the trees and shrubs. Pull weeds, add fresh bark and plant some colorful flowers in planting beds and pots. Clear the walkways and give them a power wash. Fix peeling paint and wind up that hose. Paint the address number on the curb.
Make Repairs to Visible Blemishes
Is there something that’s an eyesore, but an easy fix? If looking at it bothers you, it could bother a potential buyer and reduce the appeal of your home. Replace burnt out light bulbs, fix that loose door handle, make needed paint touch-ups.
Make a Buyer’s Entrance Inviting
Freshly paint the front door with a color that contrasts the house. Add a new welcome mat, Hang a fresh wreath on the door.
