Cheap Tricks for Curb Appeal

Published 03/09/2015

Spring is FINALLY showing its sunny face!  Along with the tulips, home listings are starting to blossom, as well.  How do you make your home stand out from the crowd?

  • Power wash the exterior of your home. Rid your house of unsightly mold, especially on the north side of the house.
  • Get your landscape under control.  Clean out the dead leaf piles from last fall and put down some fresh mulch.
  • Add some brightly colored flower pots to your front step.  Plant seasonal flowers in them for a welcoming look.
  • Paint your front door.  This is a cheap fix for a great ROI. A cheerful coat of fresh paint beckons buyers to "come on in."
  • Hang a fresh wreath of seasonal forsythia on the front door. 

Once the exterior of your house looks like a breath of fresh air, the buyers will want to see the interior. Peak their interest by enticing them to want to see more.
