Great Curb Appeal Tips

When selling your home, an attractive exterior could make or break a sale.  Here are five quick and easy tips to boost your curb appeal:

  ·   Landscaping – Spruce up your front lawn by removing dead or dying shrubs. Plant some color to break up too much green; in season annuals are the best choice to brighten up you front lawn. Fresh beauty bark and new rock can also bring some new life to your space.  Overgrown lawns and weed infested beds can really make a difference for first impressions.  Keep the yard manicured and weed free!

·    Paint – This doesn’t mean you have to paint the entire home, but if there is paint chipping around you windows or front door, a fresh coat of paint will help to clean them up.

·    Windows – Be sure your windows are clean.  This will better allow the natural light in during the showing and looks great on the outside too.  Also, open up the window coverings; open curtains and blinds help the show well from the street!

·    Roof – Take a step back and look at your roof.  If you notice moss, buyers will too.  Have a general contractor or roofer sprinkle some moss treatment to beat the growth. (For great natural moss treatment, check out:

·    Front door/porch – Adding a planter with fresh flowers and a new welcome mat at your front door gives the prospective buyer a positive start to their tour of your home.
