When it comes to selling your home, many real estate agents will encourage you to spruce up your paint and plant fresh flowers. If you read about the importance of curb appeal, many writers will tell you that buyers will make up their mind on a house before they set one foot in the door. Why is that? It all comes down to curb appeal. Now, you may not be wanting to sell, but don’t you want to have the most awesome home on the block? In this blog, we are going to highlight a few sure-fire ways to do that!
1.) Evaluate your grass
Your grass can make a big difference! A little bit of fertilizer and new seed can go a long way – and spring is the time to do it!
2.) Plant fresh flowers and plants
Many people think that once you have done some landscape, that you are good to go – pretty much forever. Just like with anything else, plants need to be ripped out, and new ones need to be planted. Some will get too big for the space and others will become too “stocky”. Being able to evaluate plants with a fresh eye and being okay with ripping out ones that are no longer appropriate will keep your landscape looking fresh.
3.) A fresh coat of paint on the trim
We are always amazed a how a little paint can go a long way! If the front of your home is looking a bit drab, then we recommend breaking out the sandpaper and heading down to Home Depot or Lowes for some paint. A good hard weekend worth of prep and paint and you will be amazed at the difference!
How could we possibly mention updating the exterior without talking about pavers? If pavers are in the budget – adding a new paver driveway is a surefire way to add curb appeal!
