Selling a home can be stressful, trying and downright TIRING. You want your home to look it’s best, so you spruce up, clean up and stage away in hopes that it will stand out amongst similarly priced and styled homes in your area. One thing that sellers often forget to pay attention to, though, is the curb appeal of your home.
It’s easy to get lost in the fixing of the interior, forgetting entirely about the first thing that buyers see when they drive up to your house: the outside and front yard area. Freshome.com, always chock full of sage advice and new ideas, featured a list of ten ways to improve the lacking look of the curbside of your abode. Some of the noted ways are:
- Accentuate the accents of your home: Whether you have shutters that adorn the sides of your exterior windows, or columns that greet potential homebuyers on the front porch, ensure they are all immaculate in restoration, upkeep and they are in good condition.
- Walkway and entry areas: The next area homebuyers will look at are the entryways to get into your home. Consider the driveway, sidewalk, stairs, and stepping stone pathways around your home and clear these of weeds, debris, and pressure wash concrete, brick, and pavers to give a clean appeal to your stepping areas.
- Year-round beauty is essential: Homebuyers purchase homes year-round, which means your foliage and grounds shouldn’t have an excuse to not look attractive. From colorful foliage in the warmer months, to well manicured structure and form of trees and evergreen plants in the colder months.
