Summertime Curb Appeal Tips
Curb appeal is one of the most important aspects of selling a home, yet it is overlooked by a large majority of home sellers. The view from the street is the first impression a potential buyer will have. Your grounds might not be the White House lawn, but we have some tips to help you get close!
Trim hedges, bushes & trees. Overgrown bushes can turn off a potential buyer, making them think you don’t care for your home. Make sure hanging tree limbs are not a danger of being walked into!
Add color! Plant seasonal flowers and mulch garden beds to bring bright and clean color to your home. If you have window boxes, make sure they present well with seasonal flowers.
Welcome potential homebuyers by dressing up the entryway with a pot of flowers or a plant. Also make sure there is ample light, and your house numbers are clearly visible from the street. You want buyers to easily find your home and entryway!
Don’t forget to look to the sky! Your roof may not be leaking, but it is one of the most important aspects of curb appeal! Metal roof looking dingy? Consider repainting/sealing, or replacing portions of it. If your shingles show signs of age, contact a roofer to see if they can be washed, or need to replaced.
