Enhancing your home’s curb appeal this spring!

Posted on: April 27th, 2012

Spring is a wonderful time to market a home. Many families love to buy during this season so that they can make the move at the end of the school year. Staging a home during this season is so easy. Green lawns and fresh flowers make for great curb appeal and that equals stellar first impressions.

But did you know, most buyers drive by a home before deciding whether or not it’s worth seeing inside? First impressions are critical so here are my Top Tips for how to enhance your home’s curb appeal.

  • Put a seasonal wreath on your front door
  • Buy a new colourful doormat
  • Buy pots of bright flowers for your front entranceway and flank on either side
  • Clean out your gutters
  • Trim any bushes so they don’t block windows and cut down on light
  • Weed your gardens
  • Add more colourful flowers and greenery to gardens
  • Buy a new shiny mailbox
  • If you have room on a porch or front entranceway, set up a small table and 2 chairs or a bench so buyers can picture themselves enjoying the scenery
  • Upgrade outside lighting
  • Mow the lawn and edge the grass around walks and trees

Doing all of this will create a beautiful impression of a well cared home that buyer’s will be enthusiastic to see on the inside!
