How to Improve a Home’s Curb Appeal

Power Cleaning and Easy Fix It Up Projects

A simple way to make your house look fresh and clean is to power wash dirt off of your home’s siding, the front porch, and the sidewalk. Dealing with small repairs and keeping up with maintenance can go a long way to make your home presentable and inviting for possible home buyers. Some small repairs and maintenance chores that can help with curb appeal include fixing ripped screens, pulling weeds, mowing the lawn, replacing old light bulbs, etc. 

Decorate the Front Porch

An inviting front porch can create a warm and welcoming mood that can spark interest for possible home buyers before they even step into the house. Decorate your front porch by displaying potted plants, setting out chairs (with decorative pillows), hanging a wreath on the front door, displaying decorative signs, hanging planted flowers, and more! 

Clean Out the Gutters

Gutters have a way of getting dirty and collecting leaves, dirt, and debris really quickly, so make sure that you take the time to clean out your gutters before you put your house up for sale. If your gutters are really worn and old, consider replacing them completely before putting your home on the market. 

Act Like a Possible Buyer

Look at your home (both the interior and exterior) as a non-bias home buyer and take notes of what you think a home buyer would want to be improved before buying. 

Remember that as a home seller, besides making the exterior of your home and the property’s landscape look nice, remember to also dust, vacuum, scrub, mop, and decorate the inside of your home as well.
