TOP 10 INEXPENSIVE CURB APPEAL TIPS TO HELP SELLING YOUR HOUSE FASTER!
Buyers want to do as little work as possible, so anything that can be done to make your house look attractive and create curb appeal pays dividends and gets your home sold in a timely fashion. Here are our inexpensive TOP 10 TIPS for curb appeal to help you achieving your real estate goal!
1, HAVE AN INVITING FRONT ENTRANCE.
The front entrance leaves an important first impression on the potential buyers. When they are driving in, or waiting at the door, they will look around and start making guesses. Does this house look clean and well-maintained by the owner? If yes, they will feel comfortable to walk in. There are lots of easy things you can do, such as power wash the steps and pathway, sweeping off the front porch, hanging a seasonal wreath (with simple designs), adding few potted flowers or trees, replacing the doormat, and, ideally, repainting the front door and replacing the door hardware.
2, REPAINT OR REPLACE YOUR MAILBOX.
A dated and weathered mailbox will discourage potential buyers. It’s easy just to repaint it by yourself. If you want to replace it, there are lots of inexpensive ones in store or on-line for you to choose from.
3, HAVE A CRISP, EASY-TO-READ HOUSE NUMBERS.
Who wants the potential buyers drive up and down the road and try to look for your house? It just doesn’t sound right. There are inexpensive options on amazon if you need to replace the house numbers.
4, MAINTAIN YOUR LAWN.
There is a long list of what you can do as it comes to the lawn maintenance, but all depends on how much time and energy you want to invest in. Starting from the easiest, cutting, trimming the edges, weeding, treating the brown spots, tilling the dirt, and adding new mulch. A well-maintained lawn does a huge difference to your house!
5, CLEAN WINDOWS.
Let the shine in! Clean the windows from both inside and outside to make them spotless, which enhance the quality of light, sharpen the view, and add a radiance to the room.
6, TRIM THE BUSHES IN FRONT OF WINDOWS OR GLASS DOORS.
Once you have windows and glass doors cleaned, you will also want to trim the overgrown bushes in front of them so to better showcase the view.
7, ORGNIZE PATIO FURNITURE.
It’s okay not to have patio furniture. But if you do, please arrange them nicely in order to create an inviting outdoor living atmosphere. Adding some outdoor pillows with bright colors or fun patterns will do the trick!
7, PLANT ANNUALS.
For the owners who still live inside the house, you can plant some annuals in the garden. Your house will look more attractive in Michigan’s beautiful seasons! Here is a list of our recommendations: Begonia, Chrysanthemum, Dahlia, Gazania, Geranium, Impatiens, Marigold, New Guinea, Petunia, and Zinnia.
8, UPGRADE OUTDOOR LIGHTING.
If selling your house in fall or winter time when it’s getting dark earlier, it will be important to add or upgrade your outdoor lighting system. The walk path can be easily brightened up with solar lights, and garage lights and porch lights could be replaced by more attractive-looking ones.
9, CREATE A FRONT PROCH SITTING.
It feels welcoming and homy if there is a front porch setting area, even it’s just a bench or a pair of patio chairs.
10, REFRESHEN YOUR DECK.
It’s important to make sure your deck look clean and refresh!
