If you’re getting ready to list your home for sale, you’ve probably done enough homework to know that curb appeal is a really big deal (and it goes a long way toward marketing your home).
Standard Lawn Maintenance
Depending on how well you’ve kept up with yard maintenance, this could be an afternoon’s work or a week-long project. You don’t necessarily have to invest much money, but your time here is well-spent and will pay off in increased foot traffic through your home.
- Keep the lawn well-groomed and fill in bare patches
- Clean up the edging
- Prune trees and shrubs
- Weed all planting beds and apply fresh mulch
- Corral your garden hose with a reel
Many sellers choose to plant flowering annuals around trees or in bare planting beds, but potted seasonal plants can have the same effect.
Concrete and Fencing: The Basics
Patching cracks or pits in your concrete will not only improve its look; it will also show potential buyers that you take care of routine maintenance. The same goes for keeping your fence in good repair. Replace any missing slats, shore up weak or crooked supports, and touch-up or repaint if necessary.
How Does Your Front Door Look?
Repainting or replacing your front door can really add to your home’s curb appeal. If you have a screen or storm door, make sure it’s clean and in good condition. You can make your home appear more inviting if you add a potted plant or flowers on your porch, as well.
