The first impression of your home is always made by the buyer in less than a minute upon arrival. The look of your houses curb appeal from the outside is what will either draw buyers in or instantly turn them away; it could mean the difference between no viewings or ten viewings. The main key is to take a psychology perspective by thinking like a buyer when viewing your home. If you were a buyer, how could you alter your home to appeal to a new-comer’s impressions? Here are some tips to help you achieve that attention your home deserves:
The Exterior of Your Home:
Power wash the outside of your home including sidewalks and patios
Dress up all of the windows in your house with the same color drapes so it looks uniform and organized from the outside
Wash your windows for the appearance of cleanliness, care, and effort for your home
Clean out all of your gutters
A fresh coat of paint can go a long way in updating your home
The Front Door:
A fresh coat of paint on your door never hurt anyone and can add instant value
Repair all chipped paint for a fresh look
Have your house number large and clearly visible
You can possibly add new porch lights with a brighter wattage to add emphasis
Add a new welcoming door mat
Consider adding some potted plants in the entryway
Shape Up your Yard:
Be sure your house can be seen from every direction in your yard, trim all bushes that may be blocking your view
Get your yard in shape for the spring season and the buying season by clearing winter debris, raking leaves, and trimming all of the dead brown remains from your existing plants
Pay attention to your flower beds and plant some seasonal flowers to add a splash of color and interest to your yard
Some thriving flowers for the spring time in this Texas heat are:
Lantana Plants (pictured): they do well in places where most other plants won’t grow and Southerners love their vibe!
Zinnia Plants: Native to southern climates these flowers are sure to brighten up your Texas garden
Lavender Plants: Leaving an aroma of lavender, this plant will greet your guests with relax and peace
Highlight your outdoor areas
Play up your patio or outdoor conversation areas by adding décor and seating
Having an area for seating makes your space more inviting and give a homey feel
If you can accomplish a great first impression by the curb appeal of your home—potential buyers will want to see what is on the INSIDE!
