Curb appeal- something that you think may not affect the sale of your home can actually have a dramatic impact on the buyers decision.
If a house looks good from the outside not only does it immediately draw in the attention of buyers, it also makes the buyers assume that the house has been well maintained and cared for both on the inside and the outside.
Here is a list of easy ways to help your house stand out by making your curb appeal astonishing.
1. Clean up your lawn.
This is an easy and impactful way to catch anybody’s attention. Cleaning up your lawn can range from how much time and money you want to put into it. You could simply just mow the lawn and clean up the driveway or you could go all in and plant new flowers, trees, etc. Either way, the lawn should be kept clean and looking nice in order to get the most out of your curb appeal.
2. Paint your door to help it stand out.
Another easy and fairly inexpensive DIY can be to paint your door a different color that helps it pop more rather than blend in. A simple pop of color on the door is a fun way to catch the buyer’s eye and notice your listing. It isn’t necessary but is a good way to get crafty, have fun, and sell your home quicker.
3. Upgrade your mailbox and while your at it upgrade your address numbers too!
Upgrading an old mailbox can really make a difference in how someone can view your home. It is an easy fix to help change the style of your house. An easy switch/upgrade to go along with that is throwing out those old, dusty numbers on your house and getting new ones. An inexpensive revamp like this can have more of an effect on your house than you would think.
4. Decorate your entry way/door.
This is another fun DIY that can come up to be inexpensive but give your house more of a “home” feeling to anybody looking to buy. You may think it is a waste of money, but you can always take the decorations with you to your new house and like mentioned before, it can have a very positive effect on your potential buyers.
5. Power wash or re-paint exterior
A quick thing to have done is a power wash to the house to give it a cleaner look. If you want to go a step farther, you can even give the house a fresh coat of paint. Either option can really create a dramatic difference and make your home look brand new!
