Curb Appeal Tips To Attract Buyers



If you're planning on selling your home soon and looking at ways to attract buyers, one method is to boost your home's curb appeal to keep up with the local market. By following some of the following tips, you not only ensure your property gives an excellent first impression to any potential buyers, but you also add value to your home.


Doors and Mailboxes, the beauty of paint.


Probably the easiest and most cost-effective way to freshen up your front door is to give it a new coat of paint. There are hundreds of colors to choose from.


Hardware. Upgrading your door's hardware is a way of making a style statement and adding curb appeal. Consider swapping traditional door knobs for more aesthetic options.


Added security. Install a doorknob with an integrated touchscreen keypad if you want your front door to stand out and wow potential buyers. Not only do they look great, but they also offer other benefits, such as convenience and added security. 


Upgrading your mailbox. Before you rush out and buy a new mailbox, consider updating the one you already have. Adding a few plants around it or giving it a fresh coat of paint can work wonders.


Landscaping

To give your home that dressed-to-impress appearance, consider some of these projects that not only add curb appeal but may also add value.


Green lawns. Precise fertilization and soil aeration are some of the secrets to greener-looking lawns


Consider the seasons. Winters can be freezing, so those plants and flowers that look stunning in the summer have no appeal during winter. Consider structural elements, such as well-manicured trees and shrubs, instead.


Refresh your mulch. Top mulch up as soon as it starts to grow thin and tired-looking. Just add 2 to 3 inches of fresh mulch, making sure you stay clear of tree trunks and plant stems.

Clean hardscapes. Keep all walkways and sidewalks clean, and make sure snow is cleared away during winter. 


Flower boxes. They come in many shapes and sizes and allow you to add color to your garden without the need for digging up the soil. Colorado has some beautiful native plants that you can add to these boxes.


Maintaining flower beds. Remove spent flowers and pull out any weeds that may obstruct growth. Also, inspect for and eliminate pests or other problems and edge the beds for a uniform look.


Lighting

Now that you have a door dressed to kill, a vibrantly green lawn, a standout mailbox, and a blaze of color in the garden, you want potential buyers to be able to see them at any time of the day or night. You can achieve this by installing outdoor lighting.


To enhance the appeal of your home, install uplights to illuminate your home's best features. You can position lights to silhouette a specific part of your garden, such as a tree or bush. You can also use downlights to create a moonlight effect.


Washing

Regularly washing your home's exterior is an important part of maintaining its appearance and protecting it from damage caused by dirt, grime, and other environmental factors.
