More on Curb Appeal



In my past post about landscaping and curb appeal, I talked about a few ideas for enhancing the aesthetic value of your property to increase your chances of selling your home.

I've garnered a few more curb appeal ideas and thought I would share them with you here.


  • Make sure your landscape agrees with your home. There should be an overall scheme to your curb appeal. A brick ranch home will not look too great with a gravel sidewalk, while the gravel sidewalk may work just fine for a rural log cabin.

  • You know what they say: If you have it, flaunt it! Only in this case we're speaking of a mailbox. You can stick a pole in the ground and mount your mailbox or you can be a little more creative and come up with a way to make your mailbox a sign that says, "This is a great place to live!". Landscaping around your mailbox and creating a "mailbox wonderland" could make the difference whether a prospective home-buyer pulls in or drives on.

  • If you have an asphalt driveway with cracks and crevices and is way past the faded stage that is also surrounded by beautiful beds of flowers, what do you really think is going to get noticed first? Fix that driveway pronto and then all eyes will be on those lush flower beds

  • Does the bottom portion of your home look like a mudslide has just passed through? Pressure washers are very inexpensive to rent and will make quick work of removing the years of spattered dirt clinging to the home's foundation. While you have that pressure washer, why not go ahead and spray off any concrete areas and also the deck if it needs it?



Make sure your home sells quickly by applying these curb appeal ideas. A little work outside goes a long way when selling your home.
