Curb appeal is an important item to consider when selling your home. In fact, it has been reported that adding curb appeal to a home can increase the value by $10,000 to $15,000. Curb appeal mainly focuses on landscaping and overall appearance of the home, but focusing on details and the little stuff can add to the overall feel of the home.
Below are some DIY ideas for ‘welcoming’ prospective buyers to your home.
Little details are great when it comes to preparing your home for sale. Below are ten items that would help improve your curb appeal to sell your home quickly.
1. Bust clutter
Remove bikes, skateboards, trash cans, garden tools and reduce the amount of outdoor furniture.
2. Freshen the entry
Clean the front door and give it a couple of coats of paint.
3. Add front-door color
A bright note of contrasting color can bring a home’s front door to life.
4. Repaint the exterior
Repainting the outside of your home isn’t a low-budget option, although, a new coat of paint seriously pumps up curb appeal.
5. Paint trim
If you can’t paint the entire home, paint the trim — or just the window trim — in an accent color.
6. Replace entry fixtures
New exterior light fixtures can quickly give a home an updated look.
7. Power wash
Rent a power washer if you don’t own one and clean the decks, car port and pavement.
8. Clean the windows
Clean windows are a must, don’t put your home on the market without sparkling windows, inside and out.
9. Clean and repair the roof
If your roof has moss, weeds or mold, clean it until it looks great from the street. Replace missing or broken shakes or tiles. Clean the gutters.
10. Mow, weed and trim
Keep the lawn carefully mowed. Mow neglected and overgrown areas. Prune trees and remove limbs that hang over the house.
