4 Easy Ways to Increase Your Listings Curb Appeal

Follow these 4 simple curb appeal hacks to create an attractive exterior and sell your home notably faster:

Tidy Up the Big Things

A quick clean up will go a long way. When potential buyers see your home for the first time you want to give the sense of a home that is well cared for and maintained. If there is any clutter or junk lying around it will clog their view of your home. Get the outside of the house as nice as the inside by packing away any extra belongings of your family (kid toys, bicycles, yard tools, etc). Next, focus on the walkways and planter beds. Rake up dead leaves from trees and any other weeds or plant debris. Then, after you’re finished cleaning up give the walkways, porch and driveway a good pressure wash. This simple half day job will really make a huge difference!

Update the Little Things

Now is a great time to make a small investment that will give you a great big return. Go for new hardware, doorknobs, house numbers, mailbox and porch lights. Start with your door and get a new knob and knocker that will compliment the color. Stick with that tone with all other hardware updates for consistency in design. Get creative with the house numbers and find something unique to catch the buyers eye. Lastly, a nice new mailbox with a lock feature will really stand out. All these little fixes will give the impression to buyers that your home is updated and ready to go!

Add Character and Color All Over

With the front of your home cleaned and updated you’ve made it to the staging step. Create an exterior of character and color by adding new vibrant plants in your pots and planters. Splurge on more mature plants to really fill the space and stick with plants that don’t lose their bloom too quickly. Make the exterior a place your buyers can see themselves relaxing on a Sunday afternoon by adding a nice bistro set or a pair of rocking chairs with a fluffy knit throw.

Weigh the Benefits of a Handyman

If you think you’ll need an extra hand for some of these projects, specifically replacing light fixtures or pressure washing, consider hiring some help. The time saved alone will be of great benefit to you. Getting your home on the market faster will save you money in the long run.
