One Hour Ideas for Boosting Curb Appeal



You've heard of the term "curb appeal". It refers to the initial impression buyers get when they first see your property from the street. If the impression is a good one, it sets the right tone for the rest of the home viewing.

How do you boost curb appeal?  Here are some proven ideas that you can get done in an hour or so:


·         Wash both the inside and outside of the front windows. You'll be amazed at the difference that can make.

·         Sweep the walkway leading up to the front entrance. Add a new welcome mat. Also, wash down the front door.

·         If possible, remove cars from the driveway. Let buyers imagine their own cars parked there!

·         Mow the lawn. Lightly trim the hedges. Weed flower beds.

·         Remove anything from inside window sills that may look unsightly from the outside. Try putting a couple of flowering plants there instead.

·         Place any trash bins out-of-sight. For example, put them in the garage or neatly at the side of the house.

·         If the entrance door hardware is old and worn, change it. New hardware can make a bigger difference than you might think.

·         Make sure the outdoor lights are working, especially if you're showing your home in the evening.

·         Add some flowering plants to flower beds, or buy a couple of portable potted plants and place them strategically.

·         Clean your mailbox. If it’s rusted, replace it.

·         If you have a power washer, give the walkway and driveway a quick blast. Just be sure it will be dry before the buyers arrive.


These one-hour improvements may seem minor, but anything that helps buyers form a more positive first impression of your home is worth the effort.
