Put your best face forward when it comes to presenting your home for sale. These tips will help ensure that when buyers drive up to your home it’ll be a case of love at first sight.
Color Me Beautiful:
Nothing perks up a home’s exterior better or faster than revitalizing coats of fresh, weather-resistant paint.
No Drive-Bys Here:
Give a tired-looking driveway a new lease on life by applying a coat of jet-black sealer to your asphalt pavement. If you have a concrete driveway, you may want to rent a pressure washer to remove grass stains and tire marks. A more expensive, but worthwhile, option would be to install a stone or brick driveway for a definite “wow” factor.
Beautify your front yard with flowers for a vibrant burst of appealing color and fragrance. What’s in the box? Overflowing with flowers, window boxes offer an irresistible draw for the eye.
Make a bold statement by using garden rocks or boulders to accentuate plantings or create grounding decorative touches. For instance, use stones to delineate the perimeter of your garden or front walkway; consider stacking river rocks about four inches to one foot high to create a centerpiece in your yard.
Get rid of unsightly weeds, crabgrass and other lawn spoilers. Keep your lawn well mowed and watered to cultivate a look of lush greenery.
Prune to Perfection:
Trim shrubs and plantings for a neat and attractive look that proudly proclaims this home is well maintained and lovingly cared for.
Add Some Window Dressing:
As decorative as they are functional, shutters add another welcoming element of style and personality to your home’s exterior. For a coordinated look, choose the same color as your front door.
