Spruce up Your Curb Appeal in less than an hour

If you’ve ever heard the term “curb appeal” it’s the first impression your home gives when a prospective buyer has their first look at your home. It can often set the tone for the rest of the viewing of your home and we want to make that a great impression right?

So how do you maximize curb appeal the quickest? Well, check out these quick and easy fixes you can do in under an hour.

Get out the bucket and wash those windows!
Washing your windows inside and out goes a long way to bring sparkle to your home.

Get out the broom!
Sweep up any dirt and dust around the entrance and sidewalk to your home to give it a fresh feel.

Get out your gloves!
Now is the time to start weeding and consider fresh mulch in your gardens leading up to the home for a polished professional look.

Check out your mailbox!
Your mailbox may need some TLC or replacing all together, so don’t overlook this item when setting up your first impression.

Cut and trim!
A fresh cut lawn and carefully manicured trimming will go a long way in making a great first impression so don’t underestimate the importance of this work.

Plant away!
Planters at the front entrance or along the path in from the curb can go a long way to make your home feel welcoming and a great first impression.

Make a grand entrance!
Take a look at your front door and see if a good cleaning, some new hardware, and a new welcome mat can be added to set the tone.

Cleaning and more cleaning!
If you have access to a power washer, making the curb area as clean as possible, and putting away any unsightly garbage bins, can make a big difference.

Some of these enhancements may seem minor or insignificant but with a little time and elbow grease, this just might make the difference in how a potential buyer shows interest in your property and put forth an offer.
