5 ways to increase curb appeal

There are many different ways to increase your home’s curb appeal. If you have read any real estate article or tips, you know the importance of a first impression if you are trying to sell your home. Ensuring that the outside of your home is as appealing as the inside is crucial to getting those buyers into your home. See below for five innovative ways to up your curb appeal!

Address plates: Small, minor changes like changing your address numbers can have a big impact on the look and feel of the outside of your home. By changing in weathered, rusty number plates for something modern and fresh, you are letting buyer’s know that you are on top of maintenance in and around your home.

Hanging baskets: A burst or pop of colour can provide a warm and inviting touch to the exterior of your home. Hanging baskets and potted colourful plants add an instant update and appeal to your home.

Paint: Consider a fresh coat of paint on your front door and garage doors. Try to stay somewhat neutral in colour choices in order to appeal to the maximum number of potential buyers. A fresh coat of pain creates a crisp, clean look for the exterior of your home.

Wreath: A seasonal but tasteful wreath on the front door can add an inviting touch. Be careful not to go too dramatic though for seasonal choices, as you want to stay neutral at all times.

Clean: Ok, so not such an innovative choice for curb appeal, but often overlooked. It is essential to do a good tidy up of your yard, driveway and front entry way. Not only does this provide a nicer look, but it lets buyer’s know that you care about your home and gives the impression that your home is well looked after.
