Instant Curb Appeal Ideas to Make Your Home Beautiful & More Attractive to Buyers
Looking to increase your curb appeal in order to sell your home? Spring is the beginning of the busiest home-selling season and in turn, home buying season. In most of the U.S., Spring leads to warmer weather, more daylight hours and the motivation of most families to buy a new home before the next school year begins. Buyers are more likely to shop for a new home during this time of the year. With spring being the on season, prices are higher in spring, meaning homeowners can get better valuations from appraisers. Here are some quick maintenance and home repair ideas that will help you get the best value for your home this season.
First and foremost, you may want to consider upgrading railings and fences. These are the first parts of your property that interested buyers are going to see. If you have a fence around your property or railings leading up to the front door, consider painting or replacing them to improve the aesthetic appeal of your front yard. Wood is a common choice, but here in Florida, the harsh saltwater environment can cause wood to crack, corrode, pit and swell. Other material, such as Aluminum or Vinyl Fence, from Best Fence Company of Jacksonville would be an excellent improvement to your front yard.
If you use decorations to express your sense of style inside, why not do the same outside? Placing a sculpture or fountain on your front lawn creates an additional focal point for those passing by. Your yard art can be as simple as a rock arrangement to as elegant as a marble statue. Just be careful with your choices—too much yard art can be a distraction from the center piece, your home. Perhaps the most overlooked areas of the home that can easily increase curb appeal are your windows, specifically window fixtures. Window boxes come in a variety of materials such as wrought iron, wood, copper and PVC. Filled with colorful flowers or greenery, these can add life to your home. Mixing and matching flowers or plants to suit the color scheme of your home offers an easy way to bring color and a charm to your home’s curb appeal.
Your home’s curb appeal is what makes the first impression on everyone. Using one, two or a few of these simple curb appeal improvements can make a lasting impression on potential homebuyers.
