Whatever the asking price, simple curb appeal changes can set the scene to immediately attract buyers to a property. There’s a lot that goes into perfecting your look and curb appeal of your home. You need to know what aspect of your home will catch a buyer’s eye! Make your home say “buy me!” If you don’t have the time, it is well worth the small expense to hire someone to get these done!

curb appeal property guiding

  1. Landscape – Keep the lawn mowed, edges trimmed, and bushes hedged. Keep any gardens you might have neat and healthy. Replace mulch or rock, if needed.
  2. Clean Sweep – Remove any visible yard debris, trashcans, tools, hoses and toys.
  3. Paint – Maybe not the entire house, but freshen up the trim, front door or maybe even the concrete steps.
  4. Add Color – Maybe in a new welcome mat, a potted plant by the front door, or vibrant flowers around the house (or even mailbox).
  5. Pressure Wash – Exterior of home, this includes the back porch or patio (that is screened in).
  6. Windows – Wash them all, inside and out, make them sparkle!
  7. Updating – Replace all old, rusted and tarnished items. Anything from doorknobs, locks, light fixtures, house numbers and mailbox.
  8. Furnish – Make the inside come outside, bring life to your front porch or back patios.
