The home’s front door is the focal point for its curb appeal. When you decide to list your home it’s important that your house has unsurpassed curb appeal. You want to make sure your house is memorable to homebuyers. I have put together a few ideas that will give your house the upper hand.

Through adding a vibrant color or a custom wood door, you instantly add style and interest in your house. Do make sure that your door is free of scuff marks and that the hardware metal has been polished. Updating any outdated door locksets, address numbers, and lighting will complement the entry way and bring it all together. 

Landscape lighting, flowers, and water features are all excellent ideas to vamp up the front of the house. You can add solar lighting to the pathway leading to your front door, or add accent lighting in nearby trees. Flower beds or potted flowers add color and an inviting feel to your home. You may automatically think of a pond as a water feature, however, there are many options such as birdbaths, fountains, or a dry stream bed filled with river rock to add curvature and variety to your yard. 

Your garage door and driveway are significant features of your home that homebuyers will notice right when they pull up to the house. Because your garage door takes up most of the exterior of the house, especially if it is facing forward, it is important to note that garage doors should coordinate with your home colors. Installing a new garage door is not only eye-catching, but also functional in energy efficiency, durability, and performance.

Lastly, sealing your driveway can add an instant facelift to your house. This is one of the most cost effective ways to increase your home’s curb appeal. 

Remember that you only get one chance to make a first impression, and that is imperative for when it comes to selling your home. I look forward to speaking you on how to give your home its own unforgettable curb appeal.
