We’re moving into the biggest season to sell homes across the nation. For those looking to relocate, you’ve probably heard the term curb appeal in your recent research, but it’s not just reserved for those in the market to move. Curb appeal can certainly make a big impact when it comes to selling your home, but it can also affect the ambiance of a neighborhood and, simply put, the overall value of your home, whether you’re interested in selling now, or later down the line.
Curb appeal refers to the appearance of a home from – you guessed it – the curb. More importantly, it’s the first impression someone gets by viewing your home from the street. Is it eclectic? Modern? Classic? There are quite a few factors that can affect your curb appeal, from your roofing to your color palette of choice.
When it comes down to it, you want the first impression of your home to be a positive one – and a lasting one. Every aspect of your home’s exterior should be well-designed and maintained to impress neighbors, family, and any prospective buyers, either now or in the future.
So, now you know what curb appeal really means, but why is it important? Making the exterior of your home eye-catching and well-groomed is a great way to beautify your neighborhood and encourage others to upkeep the aesthetic standards that have been set. Beyond that, standing out from other homes in your neighborhood just the right amount gives you a competitive edge in a seller’s market. While there are a lot of different factors when it comes to the listing price of your home, curb appeal is definitely going to be one of those factors. Think of the outside of your home as the hook that will pull people in to learn more about the interior and other features of your home.
How Can You Up Your Curb Appeal?
Start with the basics. We suggest evaluating the exterior of your home itself before worrying about landscaping and grooming. Is your siding stained or out-dated? Does your roof need new shingles? What about the quality of your windows? Plan out a color scheme for your roof and siding and maybe even install an updated front door to really capture attention. Basically, you should be asking yourself if your home is creating a cohesive story from just a glance. Not only will these basics help bring a vision together for your home, but getting new roofing and windows is a great way to keep your home maintained if you aren’t quite ready to sell. From there, you can play with strategic landscaping, fencing, and more!
Whether you’re interested in transforming your house into your dream home or your planning on selling before the new school year starts in the fall, putting some time and effort in the details of the exterior of your home will make a huge difference. Focusing on curb appeal can take your home to the next level.
