Here Are A Few Tips for Winter Curb Appeal
Because of bare trees, buyers will be able to see through clearly view of your home in the fall and winter than they do in the spring and summer. With just a few simple and inexpensive updates you can shine.
Since the front door is the first thing a buyer sees of your house, make sure that the paint on the trim is fresh and not peeling, maybe install a new knob if the old one is dated or has lost it’s shine.
Avoid accidents and present a well cared for property by clearing your walkways and steps & driveway, of snow, ice and leaves.
The grass is no longer green, but you can still keep your lawn looking neat so buyers can picture what it will look like in the spring and summer. Keep your lawn clean by keeping an eye out for a build up of leaves that have blown in from the neighbor’s trees, or remind the kids to put up their toys and bikes.
With the short winter days, having proper outdoor lighting will make your home safer and more attractive for buyers who come to visit or drive by at night. Use a series of path lights to illuminate the way to your front door, or improve or update the outside front door porch light, even updating the bulb can make it shine brighter.
Subtle decorations can bring out the best in your home. Try a simple wreath on the front door, new house numbers that are clearly visible from the street, and a new door mat will be easy improvements that won’t cost a lot.
