Curb appeal is vital for selling a home, especially in the summer. Curb appeal is the first impression your home makes as potential buyers are walking or driving by it – if your home has poor curb appeal, buyers might be more likely to pass on considering your home.
Here are some quick tips for boosting your summer curb appeal:
Hire a landscaping company to take care of your lawn, trees and shrubs. They should be kept neatly trimmed and any overhanging branches should be removed.
Ensure your home has no peeling or dirty paint on the exterior. You could use a pressure washer to remove any built-up dirt or grime, and consider applying a fresh coat of paint to really brighten up your home.
Don’t store anything outside for the time being, if possible. This means keeping your garbage cans in your garage, not leaning any kids’ toys or bicycles against your garage and removing any old planters or other items that aren’t in use.
Make small repairs wherever necessary. For example, change out any dead lightbulbs in your porch lights, and repair any broken walkway or driveway stones.
