GETTING READY FOR A SPRING LISTING – Curb Appeal

       

You can give your house that welcoming look with a few small and inexpensive improvements that will wow potential buyers as they drive up to your house.  

Here are a few ideas:

HOUSE

  • Fresh paint is the simplest way to add curb appeal to your house. 
    • Paint the trim and railings (white or light paint colors can make a small house look larger)
    • Paint your front door (think about a door color that accents the house color)
    • Paint your garage door and maybe add some hardware
    • Upgrade/paint your mailbox
    • Install or paint shutters
  • Install new house numbers – brass, copper or designer add a nice touch
  • Install a new storm door with an oval or decorative glass
  • Replace a light fixture with one that combines a motion detector

YARD

  • Plant a tree
  • Trim your bushes and remove all dead flowers
  • Add some color by using colorful potted plants on the porch or along the steps
  • Plant flowers that will bloom at different times during the spring, summer and fall
  • If you like to read under the shade of a tree - build a bench around a large shade tree or add a bench
  • Add a yard sculpture

OTHER IDEAS

  • Fix and repair cracks in your asphalt driveway
  • Hide your garbage cans
  • Power wash your driveway and sidewalks
