Made the big decision to sell your home? Congrats! Now, it’s time to get to work.
Your realtor will tell you that it’s important to capture homebuyers’ attention from the moment they arrive at your home. Yep, that’s right… a nice curb appeal is ideal.
Pull out all the stops to make a great first impression with buyers with these quick updates.
Polish with a Power Wash
Consider power washing your home’s exterior. From siding and windows to sidewalks and driveways, a quick wash will help your home appear fresh and clean.
Penchant for Plants
Homebuyers will certainly love to see a pop of color in the yard. You can create a small flower bed around your mailbox to make a great first impression on the street. Bright green ferns will dress up your doorway in footed planters or hanging along your front porch. Window boxes overflowing with the colors of spring will also make a great presentation.
Knock Them Out
Colorful front doors are a great way to style your home, but adding a unique door knocker will really complete the effort. Seek out a door knocker that matches your decor–an antique flower basket, a black iron design or a whimsical firefly.
Make it Mat-ter
The welcome mat has had a facelift. You can find stylish iron mats, woven and wooden mats and even stencils for painting a mat yourself. No matter what you choose, buyers will enjoy the coziness a front door mat offers.
Haute House Numbers
Every home has an address, but not every home has stylish house numbers. Try stenciling your house numbers on a brightly painted door. Add your numbers to an iron planter overflowing with healthy plants. Find oversized metal numbers and position them in a “not-so” common locale beside the door.
Make sure your exterior entryway is up-to-date with new lighting. There are tons of options for exterior lighting these days. Find lights that look best with your home design. Consider selecting lights larger than those you’re replacing, you may be surprised how much better they match the scale of your home.
