Creating a great first impression of your home starts before prospective buyers even step through the front door. There are ways you can make them look forward to viewing your home before they even step up to the front door by using curb appeal techniques to make it look its best. An attractive home, priced right, will sell quickly. When you want to sell your home fast, here are some ideas to spruce it up and make it shine.
Curb Appeal Techniques that Will Ensure a Fast Sale of your Home
- Update your Front Door
Examine your front door carefully. If it is in good condition, you may simply want to brighten it up with a fresh coat of paint in a bright colour. Changing out the hardware will give it a new look on a budget. There are many choices available at your local home improvement centre or online.
- Install Outdoor Lighting
Landscape lighting makes a big impact on your home’s curb appeal while providing safety and security for you and your family. Consider installing fixtures to light the way to illuminate a walking path or to light the way to add accent lighting to your home.
- Use Planters, Window Boxes and Flower Beds to Add Colour
Depending on how much space you have around the front of your home, you can look for ways to incorporate the colour and texture of flowering plants. Planters are available in various sizes and styles, and are an excellent choice when space is at a premium.
Window boxes made from wood look wonderful on a home with a cottage feel, while iron or copper have a more traditional feel. Flower beds can be dug close to the house or in any size or shape on the front lawn to accommodate perennials or annuals, as well as shrubs to compliment your home’s exterior and create a welcoming environment.
- Park your Car in the Garage
Parking your car in the driveway clutters the view of the house. Cleaning out the garage so that you make room to park your car cuts down on clutter and gives your home a neater appearance when prospective buyers arrive.
