Check out our blog, Freshen Up Your Yard for Summer!, for even more tips on how to get your home ready for its next tenant.
1. Change up the Front Door
Changing up the front door is one of the best ways to add curb appeal. If your front door doesn’t grab your attention, consider painting it a brighter color. You could even add a couple of planters to bring some depth to the entrance. Sometimes all it takes to spruce up your front door is by giving it a good cleaning. Pressure washing and touching up paint could bring new life to your home.
2. Manicure the Lawn
Mowing your lawn on a regular basis and trimming the edges truly makes a world of difference. Not only does it make your home look elevated, but it also helps with the upkeep of your lawn. Make sure to also trim back any trees and/or hedges to keep them clean and healthy.
3. Clean Up the Exterior
Cleaning up the exterior could mean pressure washing the sidewalk and driveway, cleaning the windows, and clearing your patio of debris. These tasks only take a couple of hours but can make your house look brand new!
4. Plant Flowers
Planting flowers is our personal favorite way to add curb appeal. It brings color and depth to your home. Make sure to speak with an associate of where you purchase the flowers to ask their opinion on the best flowers for your yard. Pick ones that are likely to survive the heat! It doesn’t take many flowers to add a homey feel to your property.
5. Update Light Fixtures
Just like painting the front door to bring life to your home, consider updating the light fixtures as well. Make sure all of the light fixtures are working properly and change them out with new ones. This can easily take your home from out of style to right on trend!
