If you’re new to the idea of ‘curb appeal’, you’ve probably never sold a property before. When selling a property, it isn’t just the inside of the house that matters. The outside of the house matters too. In fact, much of the time, it’s things you don’t even think get noticed that matter! Your curb appeal is the impression somebody gets just looking at your home from the outside. There are many simple things you can do to improve it, and some more complicated things too. You might think that nobody will notice the weeds or your dead hydrangeas, but it all contributes to their overall impression of your home. This comprehensive guide will give you a few valuable tips.
Get Rid of Weeds
Weeds ruin the look of your garden, so get rid of them effectively with tools and weed killer. They might not stay gone forever, but you can at least do this before people come to view your home.
De-clutter Your Garden
Most people have some form of clutter in their garden. You might have broken figurines or old pet toys. De-clutter by getting rid of everything making a mess. The tidier, the better!
Manicure the Lawn
Give your lawn a manicure by mowing and trimming it. Some people like to keep theirs slightly longer to attract more wildlife, but this is your call!
Add a Water Feature
Water features instantly add a tranquil feel to your garden. You could add a small feature or go all out and add a pond!
Attract birds to your garden by using birdfeeders. When pretty birds spend time in your garden, it instantly increases the appeal!
Perhaps you have some repairs to be done. This isn’t just in the garden either; this goes for the roof of your home or even your garage. If you can’t make the repairs yourself, don’t hesitate to contact a garage help service who will do it for you.
Wash Your Car
Although you’re not selling your car, you should still make sure it’s nice and clean. It really can change the view of a buyer if it’s dirty!
Paint Your Door
Make your door look more welcoming by giving it a nice bright coat of paint. You could also replace the hardware, or just replace the entire door! The door will be the first close up interaction a buyer has with your house.
Replace Your Welcome Matt
Dirty welcome matt? Replace it! They’re cost effective and a new one will look much better.
Clean Your Windows
Clean your windows to get rid of smudges and anything left there by pets or children. They should be shiny enough to mistake for blank space!
After reading this, you should now have a good idea of what it takes to increase your curb appeal. First impressions count, so do your best to make the outside of your home as presentable as possible. You could get a much bigger offer just for taking the time to do this too!
