Polish Those Numbers
Obviously, the numbers on the front of your home are not exactly the most practical feature. However, it is a detail that is naturally going to draw the gaze of prospective buyers, and therefore something you cannot afford to ignore! If they are dirty and flecked with rust, or otherwise hard to see in some way, then it is going to be an instant turn-off for anyone who arrives for a viewing. Though it may seem like a minuscule change, replacing them will have a tremendous positive impact on the aesthetic appeal of your exterior. When buying new house numbers, think about the style of your home. Whether it is modern and minimalist, or old and brimming with character, make sure you find a font and metal that matches it!
Refresh Doors and Windows
The doors and windows of your home are another big feature in the exterior of your home, and buyers are certainly going to consider them at the start of a viewing. If the doors and windows of your home are looking a little old and dilapidated, then find some way to breathe a little more life into them. If the paint on your front door is looking a little rough and flaky, give it a fresh coat. The door alone can make the whole front of the home seem more vibrant and inviting. Rusted, chipped locks may be worth replacing, especially on windows. Homebuyers not only want to know that their home will look great, but also that it will be secure and keep their possessions and family safe. It may even be worth adding some new features, like fresh drapes and security screens for windows.
Plant Some Color
We are still in the grip of winter. However, once the weather starts picking up, I recommend looking for some attractive annual plants, and using these to add some color to your home’s exterior. If you have any plant pots on your porch, along with window boxes and flowerbeds that have not been used in years, then fill them with colourful flowers to give your curb appeal an instant booster. You may not be very experienced with gardening. You may even loathe it! While this is understandable, do not go with artificial flowers! Many prospective buyers will notice these, and though they may look good at a glance, they are certain to be more of a turn-off. If your flowers do not come through quite as you wanted, then using some dark compost or mulch will bring out their colors with much more vibrancy.
