Whether you’re buying or selling a home, it’s no secret that the outside is just as important as the inside when attracting potential buyers. A stunning home will leave a positive first impression on buyers and increase the overall value of your property. It’s also proven to make homeowners happier in their houses, as a beautiful home can give owners a huge sense of accomplishment.
That’s why it’s essential to maintain your home’s curb appeal!
While there isn’t an exact formula to get the perfect amount of curb appeal, there are plenty of things, both big and small, that you can do to give your home a “wow” factor. Look at some of the most effective tips and tricks to increase your home’s curb appeal:
• Entryway. The entryway is one of the most critical parts of curb appeal. Remember, when prospective buyers look at your home, they’ll likely stand in the entry for at least five minutes just talking specs about it, so you’ll want to leave an impression. Adding a welcome mat and some pots of flowers is an easy way to make your home seem warm, welcoming, and inviting. Add Oleanders to a pot for a beautiful burst of color, or Birds of Paradise for a fun, tropical touch!
• Garden. Make sure you pull up any weeds and rake up any fallen leaves, especially in the fall/wintertime. This will tighten and clean up your home’s overall appearance. Then, embrace your inner gardener by adding seasonal flowers, fresh mulch around existing trees, or even a window box or hanging pot of flowers for elegant warmth. We love the look of Eagleston Holly or Holly Plants in the wintertime to get people in the holiday spirit or consider adding some Bottlebrush Shrubs for some low-maintenance yet gorgeous shrubbery to accent your home!
• Landscape. If your yard looks a little barren or your thumb isn’t so green, consider hiring a professional landscaper to do some designing for you. This may involve revamping the overall aesthetic of your home and adding new shrubs, trees, and other plants to your yard. Landscapers can add their professional opinions and experience to your home, giving it a high-end finish that everyone is looking for. Plus, they’ll have a vast knowledge of what kinds of plants will thrive in your home’s climate, soil, water, etc. For example, if you want palm trees in your yard, a landscaper can identify and place the perfect species of palm tree in your yard that is suitable for your lifestyle.
