Curb Appeal for All Seasons

spring garden galSeasonal pots for Legendary Real EstateCurb Appeal makes a difference, when Selling your Home so here are some great ideas to make your home more appealing when listing your home.

  • SPRING:  Spring can be gray and rainy so add some color with flowers or shrubs that bloom in the Spring.  Even a colorful pot of flowers on the porch will help.  Make sure you do a Spring Clean-up around the yard, clearing up any dead debris, papers or whatever else has accumulated over the winter months.  Repair any sidewalk cracks or other exterior damage that winter may have happened over the winter.
  • SUMMER:  Keep your lawn watered.  A green lawn means more green in your pocket.  Trim your landscape so it looks well maintained.  Most importantly, don’t let your bushes hide the best features of your home.  A well manicured exterior helps set the great expectations of what’s inside.  Make sure windows are clean to let in lots of light.
  • FALL:  Add some colorful fall flowers, pumpkins, etc. to add color to the front entry. Keep your leaves raked, which will keep the outdoor greenery looking fresh longer.  If you have a fireplace in the home, set the scene by lighting a cozy fire or light spice scented candles to make it feel warm and welcoming.
  • WINTER:  Keep your pathways clear. Shovel and de-ice all sidewalks and porches for easy exploration.  Don’t go overboard with Holiday decor.  Keep it simple using greens and festive colors.  You want to honor your faith, but don’t want it in people’s faces when they enter your home for viewing.  A plate of freshly baked cookies will make the home smell wonderful and leaves a unique touch for the Buyers to remember your home as special.

First Impressions are lasting Impressions.  Take  a little extra time to put your best foot forward. It will help make a difference in your bottom line.
