Adding Curb Appeal

Updated Saturday, March 1, 2014

We know that most buyers are starting their home search online. They will take a look at the pictures and then they often take a drive by the property before they call the Realtor to book a showing. This is why curb appeal is so important.

 Here are some simple, affordable changes that will give your home more attractive curb appeal.

Change out your light fixtures

Adding a new light fixture to the entry way not only enhances the look of your home but it also makes it easier for home buyers to find your home. Having a well lit entry will make your home look more warm and inviting.

Consider replacing the front door 

A new front door makes a great first impression. If a new door is not in the budget, consider adding a fresh coat of paint along with new hardware to make it look it's best.

Add flower boxes to windows

Flower boxes help add color to a home's exterior and make the windows appear taller from the street. Adding some bright colour flowers can make your home more attractive.

Replace older shrubbery that has grown too large for your home. If you want to make your home appear taller, use smaller shrubs. Watch out for shrubs that are overgrown as they can easily "swallow up" a small home. 

For big results, think small

Edge your flower beds to create smooth sweeping lines. Freshen your mulch or  wood chips. Water and fertilize your lawn to make it look it's best.

Keep it simple

Have a clear and defined path from a parking area to the home's entrance so that potential buyers know where to enter the home. 

Keep it clean

Use a pressure washer to remove dust and debris off siding, decks, driveways and walkways leaving a pristine facade on your home.
