Increasing the chances to sell your home can cost a fortune at times, but you’d be surprised what small steps you can take to change your home’s curb appeal dramatically. You only get the chance to create a great first impression, so it’s vital to leave an impact. How can you do this and remain in a budget that doesn’t hurt your finances? Let’s start at your door.

 

Front Door

Contemplate any modifications that would add some flavor to your front door. Attaching a reef that suits the seasons can give your home that warm and fuzzy feeling. Painting the door a new color that compliments the house can give the impression that you have consistently taken care of it. Anything that paints a picture in the potential buyer’s head of them living there will support you. This task can be completed for around 20 bucks and a few hours or less. 

 

The Lawn

Sometimes a lot of buyers will drive by your home to see if they’re even interested. Your lawn will be one of the first things they notice, so it’s critical to increasing your curbside appeal. Take the time to make sure the yard is looking neat and tidy for future buyers. No gadgets or weeds should be hanging around; that’s an instant turn off. There’s even green spray paint that’s environmentally friendly that you can use to touch up your lawn. You never know what will leave a lasting impact on people. 

 

Garden

If you have a garden then show it some love keep it nice and tidy. If it’s wintertime, then clean up the area and any dirt that may be lying around. If you don’t have a garden, investing in small potted plants can go a long way.

Prepared garden beds tell buyers that a home has been well maintained. Start by weeding your planting beds and removing any debris. Buy a few bags of mulch and spread enough to cover the width and length of your home’s front beds. The mulch will give your landscaping a fresh appearance and keep weeds to a minimum while retaining moisture. This often adds a lot of curbside value to your home as well.

 

Wash It

Turn the nozzle on your garden hose to its firmest setting and use the water to blast dirt and debris off sidewalks, your driveway, and the front of your home. Be careful not to dislodge or get any water underneath your home’s siding.

Invest in power washing your house and driveway. This can create a crisp look to the home and show that you care for it. Renting a power washer can cost $50 to $75 a day, so be sure to get what you need to complete one day.

Even doing one or two of these steps can dramatically change that curbside value for your home. It’s essential to create an image for the buyer of them living there and coming home to a beautiful lot every day. If you manage to do all these steps, you might not want to sell it anymore.
