4 Ways to Boost Your Curb Appeal

Street of residential housesWhy Does Curb Appeal Matter?

First impressions matter, especially when it comes to potential home buyers. In real estate, your home’s exterior can boost the chance of an offer. If you want to attract the best offers, your home has to be ready for showings – both inside and out. Check out some easy tips on creating eye-catching curb appeal to help you bring in those buyers.

Paint Your Front Door, Dress Up the Entry

Have you noticed some chipping paint on your front door? If your door looks like it could use a fresh coat of paint, now is the time refresh it. Exterior paint can run you about $30 a gallon, making this a small investment for a big payoff. Your home’s front entry is the focal point of the exterior and can tell buyers how put-together and high-end the inside of your home is. Between polishing the door fixtures, cleaning up your welcome mat, and adding a few potted plants, buyers will feel ready to step into your home.

Run Maintenance on Your Roof

It is easy to forget about your roof, but most home buyers will take notice. No one wants to invest in a home with a shaky or run-down roof. Even if your roof remains structurally sound, you can make repairs or give it a good cleaning to give buyers some extra peace of mind. Is your roof missing any shingles? Does it have a few streaks? Solving these small blemishes can play a significant part in the bigger picture of your home’s first impression.

Freshen Up Your Yard

A well-manicured lawn, fresh layers of mulch, and pruned shrubs can enhance the curb appeal of any home. If you are planning on removing some brush or replacing old plants, consider leafy and colorful varieties. The bases of any taller bushes or trees can be filled with mulch or planted with flowers to cover up dead spots. Of course, don’t forget to remove those pesky weeds and mow regularly.

Upgrade Your Mailbox and House Numbers

If your mailbox is sitting on a rotting or leaning post, it might be time for an upgrade. Get a mailbox that matches your personal style, but also one that can appeal to your home buyers. Planting flowers around the base of it can add a splash of color if you go with a more muted mailbox. If you decide to not buy new, at least give your old mailbox a makeover with a fresh coat of paint and new house numbers. If you walk into your local home improvement store, you can find a wide range of house numbers and plaques for any style.
