Raleigh Cary Realty—Maximizing Curb Appeal: How to Make Your Home Stand Out to Buyers

Home sellers have heard this before: One of the best ways to make your home stand out to buyers is to have a strong curb appeal. But, how is this possible? It’s not hard. Hometown realtors,Raleigh Cary Realty, have some easy tips on what to do.

For starters, it’s necessary to take a good long look at the front of the home from the curb. Be as unbiased and open-minded as possible. Remember, that outsiders will be judging the home when they arrive, and first impressions are critical.

Tips on how to make your home stand out to buyers: 

  • Step one is easy. Keep up with the yard—the grass should be mowed, free of weeds, and edged around the sidewalks and porch. If there are bushes or shrubs, be sure they are trimmed and looking uniform.There cannot be any leaves lying around.
  • The windows and gutters need to be free of dirt and debris. They should pop. As for the front door,decorate it up. Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas. Have one that matches the current season hanging on the front. If it has flowers, make sure they aren’t wilted or too flashy. Check the door hardware, too. Are The handles looking old? If so, it’s time to replace them.
  • Give the front a fresh coat of paint if it’s been a while, and even update the house numbers if they look faded or not uniform. Look at the mailbox, and upgrade when necessary.
  • Planters are an easy way to add to the front appeal. Whether they are hanging, or sitting in large pots around the porch, make sure the contents are colorful and well maintained.
  • Make sure the front porch furniture is clean, neat, and organized. It must look comfortable and pleasing to use. Be sure to hide any electrical cords.
  • Lastly, look at the entrance ways to the house, such as the driveway, sidewalks, and steps. They must be easily accessible and clean. If necessary, pressure wash them, and stain them (if they are wood.)
