Curb Appeal - What You Need to Sell Your House!


-->
When selling your home, the outside is just as important as the inside. Staging is a great way to showcase your home and it really lets buyers see your home at its best. The outside of your home is the first thing that buyers will see, it is so important to make a good first impression. Let’s look at some ways to boost curb appeal and get your home sold quicker:

-A Fresh Coat: You don’t have to go crazy and paint the whole house but touching up the up the paint on the trim and the door will make a big difference. You can also add some interest by changing the color of your front door. This is also a great way to add a pop of a vibrant or bold color that will not be overpowering. In this picture we see the front door paint in a fresh, spring green. Fresh Apple (P360-6) by Behr makes a strong yet welcoming statement. Make sure to check with your HOA  -- you have one -- before starting to make sure a color change is allowed.  I also love robin's egg blue and bright yellow doors - but it needs to look good with the siding.


-Pops of Color: Adding color to your front porch or yard adds interest. You can add color very easily by adding plants. You can add brightly colored flowers to planting beds or pots. However, if you don’t have a green thumb you can still achieve the same effect. Go with low maintenance leafy plants, like shrubs and ferns and plant them in brightly colored pots. They will look great next to any home.

-Relaxation Zone: A front porch can be a great opportunity to create interest and warmth. If your home has a porch, think about adding a cozy seating area with an outdoor rug. Creating an inviting outdoor space to relax will make your home feel larger. Make the space even more inviting with a porch swing, accessories and some throw pillows.

-Cleaning up: Just like it is important to clear the clutter on the inside of your home, it is just as important to do it on the outside. Yard equipment, play items and even gardening supplies should be placed neatly in the shed and out of sight.

Even though the outside of your house might look clean it will still benefit from a once over
with the power washer. Siding and brick especially collect dirt and pollen over
the years. While you have the power washer be sure to go over the patio and
walkways. Also be sure to trim any trees or shrubs, pull any weeds and add fresh mulch!

-Update the hardware: This could be anything that’s on your house. All of the light fixtures should either match or be in the same style. The door knob and door knocker may need updating. These may seem like little things, but a buyer is looking at the details. Changing out this hardware can also give your house a more modern updated look.

-House Numbers: Make sure that your house number can clearly be seen. It should be on the mailbox and near the front door. You want the buyer to be able to see the numbers from the road. Black letters are the easiest to see, but if you have a darker house color you may opt to put them on the front door or to use a plaque.

Happy Spring and Happy Decorating!
