When it comes to selling your home, making a great first impression is very important. If a potential home buyer likes what they see on the outside, they’ll likely want to see what the inside is like. In this blog, we’ll go over some simple, low-cost curb appeal improvements that are easy to do and can make the outside of your home look charming and pleasing to the eye.
Tip #1: Make it welcoming.
A warm, welcoming entrance to the home makes potential homebuyers comfortable and it allows them to more easily imagine themselves living in the home if they bought it. If you have a porch area, add some cozy seating to it, like comfortable rocking chairs. A little bit of warmth goes a long way.
Tip #2: Add color.
If you have a walkway, add color to it with bright flowers. Either plant them to line the path, or get large pots and plant a variety of flowers in them. If you have a covered porch area or a place to hang some hanging flower baskets, this is also a great way to add color to the space. These are simple and relatively low cost options to complement the house and make it more attractive.
Tip #3: Maximize the space.
If you have a condo or just a small area in the front of your home and are limited on space, you can still maximize the space well. Flowers and a touch of antique décor for example, create a unique and inviting space that people will want to discover.
Most importantly, be sure that your front yard is maintained well and that unnecessary clutter is removed from walkways, porches, patios, and other areas that are within the vision of people that drive by your home. Mow your lawn and keep it edged. Creating curb appeal can be fun and can add value to your home.
Selling your home only takes one buyer and it’s often that first impression that makes a lasting difference!
