If you’re looking to sell your property then you want it to look its best. This means you need to consider how it appears to someone who sees your home for the first time. The very first impression will probably be formed as they drive past the property and Curb Appeal.
Of course, if you’re looking to sell then you’re probably not wanting to spend too much money on improving your home. That’s why it’s important to identify the small scale changes you can do that will make a huge difference.
It is worth noting that just because you are doing small scale projects it doesn’t mean that you can’t get help to get them all sorted. A good approach to this is to use a firm like Advanced Group Services which can give you the skilled trades people you need for just as long as you need them.
Tidy The Yard
First impressions count and you need to have good access to your front door. This job simply takes a little time. Stand at the curb and look towards your door; then remove anything in the way that blocks your view of the door.
Once you’ve done this cut the grass, do some weeding, trim the hedges, and get rid of dead leaves. Your home will look amazing.
If you don’t have a driveway but do have the space for one then this is a good time to install one. It’s not as big a job as you may think and it will dramatically improve your curb appeal.
Unless your home looks very tidy you’re probably not going to want to spend tie painting the outside of it. However, this doesn’t stop you giving your door and window frames a coat of paint. Choose a nice bright color to catch people’s eyes.
Light It Up
Don’t forget that people may first see your home in the evening when the light is not so good. You don’t want to create a floodlit area but a few strategically placed lights will help to show anyone the best parts of your home; enticing them to look further.
Putting a mat at your front door and a few plants in pots is a very small and easy thing to do. But it will make a huge difference. Visitors will feel welcome and potential buyers will feel comfortable; this will help to convince them that they want to buy your property.
Flowers always make a home look inviting and loved. But, it takes time to look after any type of flower. Reduce this time and get the look by using planters; this will help to minimize weeds and create the right effect; especially if the flowers are on the main walkway to the house.
Check For Damage
Your curb appeal can be boosted by looking for cracks in your walls, flaking paint or other signs of disrepair. All these things suggest a home that is not cared for which will leave people wondering what it is like inside.
Complete the maintenance jobs on the outside of your home and watch the curb appeal shoot up.
