Raise The Curb Appeal Of Your Property For A Quick Sale

When you have a beautiful interior you want your exterior to match as well. This is known as curb appeal. There are lots of different things you can do to raise the curb appeal. You may be needing to do this if you are thinking about selling your home, there is no point in having a nice home inside if the outside doesn’t match. You want prospective buyers to be amazed by both and snap your property right up. 

 

Let’s take a look at what you can do to improve the outside of your property.

Garden

 

Front gardens quite often get forgotten about, you walk past it to get to your front door and think oh I must do that, and then simply forget. Unfortunately, this can cause the garden to become overgrown and out of control quite quickly. Potential buyers don’t want to see an untidy unkempt garden, this gives the impression that the inside is full of chaos and mess too. 

 

If you forget, why not set a weekly reminder to sort out the garden. Once you are on top of it and it’s been done once it will be easy to maintain. Mow the lawn, get rid of the weeds, and trim the hedges back to allow for a much neater look. You should also think about adding some color to the front garden, flowers, plants, and hanging baskets can inject some life and color into your garden and make people want to look at it. 

 

If you are struggling to maintain your garden or you simply aren’t able to then you have a couple of options. You can hire a gardener to keep the garden tidy every week or you can create a low maintenance garden swapping the real grass for artificial grass. If you choose the right one, artificial grass can look lovely. 

 

Paintwork 

 

Over time your paintwork can become dull and dreary, this is especially true for your front door and garage if you have one. Buyers will be put off if there are signs of paintwork chipping off, after all, they may not want to do renovations themselves but move into a house that is ready to live in. Giving it a fresh lick of paint will inject a lot more life into it. You can also get some metal polish for your door handles if they are showing signs of age and rust. 

 

There are other items you can add to bring a burst of life into your old door, you can install a new letterbox or even a door plaque. 

 

If that doesn’t quite make the door look good as new then maybe it is time to invest in a new door, yes this may be an expensive option but it will add so much curb appeal to your home. 

 

Roof

 

Finally, you need to ensure your roof is in tip-top condition, whilst a damaged roof may not be obvious when viewing your home the buyers will quickly become aware of it. Having a damaged roof can and will lose you the sale of your home so it is best to get it sorted as soon as possible. A damaged roof can cause long-term expensive problems such as damp, mold, and rotting floorboards. If your property has already sustained damage from a broken roof then you will need to call out a Property Damage Restoration Company to check your property and fix any problems before you sell. 

 

Looking for a Spring Home Improvement Project?

Now is that time of year when the flowers start to bloom, the baby birds begin to hatch and we start thinking about new beginnings of our own, particularly when it comes to our home.

 

If you’re looking to do a little home improvement this springtime, but you aren’t exactly sure what you want to do, here are some ideas for you to consider:

 

Make a Start on that Much-Needed DIY Jobs

 

Whether it’s a drywall repair, a leaking faucet that needs some attention or a wooden floor that needs to be polished, why not take some time out this spring to catch up on all of those little DIY jobs around the house that you always talk about doing, but never actually get round to? You’ll feel so much better once they’re sorted.

 

Install a Deck in the Garden

 

Pretty soon, you’re going to want to spend more time in the garden, so why not buy some wood and build a deck? It’s easier than you might think if you follow the right instructions, it’ll keep you busy, and once you’re done you’ll have a fabulous place to sit out in the sun, watch the birds and bees fly by, and cook up a storm on the barbecue. Bliss.

 

Check Your Air Conditioner

 

Before the weather gets hot, you’re going to want to check that your air conditioning unit is functioning as it should. By inspecting it now, or having a professional inspect it for you, you can ensure that when you really need it, you won’t be waiting around for the repairman getting sweaty! Plan ahead and you’ll have a great summer.

 

Paint the Exterior

 

In spring, when the weather starts to get better, it’s the perfect time to get outside and paint your house. This is an especially good project if your home hasn’t been painted in a while and its starting to look a bit dirty. It’s amazing how trans formative a fresh lick of paint can be to your home and its curb appeal.

Plant Flowers

 

There are lots of beautiful, fragrant flowers that are best planted in the spring, so why not get out and get your hands dirty. Instead o just planting in the borders, try to come up with some interesting planting patterns, and don’t forget to deal with the weeds!

 

Polish the Floors

 

If you have stone or hardwood floors, sanding and/or polishing them is a great way to refresh them and give them a new lease of life for the spring. It’s easier to do that a lot of people realize, and you can usually hire the equipment you need from DIY stores, so you don’t have to worry about buying a lot of gear.

 

Switch Out the Soft Furnishings

 

Looking for something really simple? Pack away all of the heavy cushions, pillows, throws, and curtains and replace them with lighter, fresher spring versions in bright spring colors for the simplest spring home transformation ever.

 

Enjoy your home this spring!
