Five Tips for Better Curb Appeal
Wednesday Mar 23rd, 2016Share
First impressions are everything – especially, when it comes to selling your home. In fact, homes with great curb appeal tend to command higher prices and take less time to sell. Every seller’s dream, right?
The good news is that adding to your home’s curb appeal is fairly easy and inexpensive to do. All it takes is a bit of elbow grease, a coat of paint and some colourful greenery, and you have a house that’s ready to welcome potential buyers.
Here are five tips to consider:
Trim trees and bushes
Well-maintained greenery adds texture and interest to your home’s curb appeal. Keep your shrubbery in tip-top shape by trimming it nicely to highlight your home’s features.
Give it a wash
After a long winter of snow and salt, your home’s surfaces need a good cleaning. Pressure-wash your driveway, front walkway, house and patio for a fresh, clean look.
Clean your windows
Sparkling clean windows not only draw more light into your home, but they show you have pride of ownership. Before you list, give your windows a thorough washing on the interior and exterior.
Paint your front door
A fresh coat of paint is an inexpensive way to make your home’s curb appeal pop.
Add flowers for added colour
Freshly planted flowers and new mulch can revive the most tired gardens. It also adds a welcoming touch to buyers coming to see you home.
