Tidy Up the Yard
Make sure to remove any unnecessary items from your yard such as lawn chairs and toys. Removing these objects will ensure there is no visible distractions when home buyers are looking at the exterior of your home. Cleaning up the yard also makes the exterior look tidy and put together.
Replace any flowers or shrubs that are in bad shape, and add plants with a bright pop of color! Make sure to remove any weeds from the front lawn as these can be an eyesore to potential home buyers. In addition, make sure to keep your lawn well watered and fertilized. A healthy green lawn with no brown spots is ideal. Also, consider using a power washer to make dirty surfaces, such as the driveway, look brand new. All in all, a well manicured lawn will definitely boost the spring curb appeal of your home.
Add a Fresh Paint Job
Giving your home a fresh paint job is one of the best things you can do to spruce up your home’s spring curb appeal! However, be prepared as this can be quite pricy. If you are interested in repainting the exterior of your home, go for a subtle color or match the original color of your home. Consider repainting the shutters with a nice accent color as well. Painting the home an unusual or extravagant color can actually decrease the value of your home.
Make sure to take care of any small repairs to the exterior of your home to boost its spring curb appeal. Give your home a fresh new look by replacing old rusty gutters and burned out light bulbs. Make time to clean all the window panes to give it a fresh and clean look. Home buyers can notice the tiniest of flaws, so make sure to take a good look at the exterior of your home for any necessary repairs that can be easily made.
Spruce Up the Front Door
Add eye appealing decor such as a year round wreath to add a pop of green to your front door. Replace the old door mat with a new and clean one that is inviting for guests. Add potted plants to add even more greenery. Consider replacing the front door hardware such as the doorknob or adding a unique door knocker that will be sure to capture home buyer’s attentions.
With these best practices for increasing curb appeal, your home will surely gain more value. By taking the time to do these these easy projects you will likely see a quicker sale with more return on your investment.
