Add some Curb Appeal to your Home
Adding Curb Appeal this Spring
As we are heading into Spring “moving season” is fast approaching. If you are thinking of selling your house or already have it on the market you might be thinking about how to improve its “curb appeal”.
Curb appeal is a bit of a buzz word nowadays and literally means; the attractiveness of your property when viewed from the street. First impressions count more than ever before and it is widely thought that potential buyers make decisions and assumptions on a property within minutes of walking through the door so you want your home looking at its utmost best on viewing days!
Follow our top tips to add some quick and easy curb appeal to your home this Spring.
The Front Door – Give your front door a 60 minute make over by adding a new knocker, knob and letterbox. Finally add a fresh coat of paint and some nice clear house numbers so your potential buyers form a great first impression.
Clean up – Add some basic “curb appeal” by cleaning the windows, re-pointing your path and giving the front garden a little bit of TLC.
Declutter and Store – Any estate agent will tell you a clean, tidy home is the Holy Grail when it comes to selling your house. Take your home back to basics and keep it minimalistic and clutter free while it is on the market. If you don’t have a loft or garage to hide away your treasures then arrange some short term storage with your removals company.
Hall of Mirrors -The first place prospective buyers will step foot is the hallway. Keep this (sometimes narrow space) clean and tidy and for a quick, simple and cheap trick add some mirrors so your hallway magically appears bigger.
Keep Things Light – It may be obvious and very simple but make sure all your blinds and curtains are open. A splash of spring sunshine will help brighten up any room!
