How To Give Your Home Curb Appeal 

Curb Appeal Checklist

Don’t overthink it!

Almost all quality improvement comes via simplification of design, so don’t over think it.

How your home looks from the curb is your potential buyers first impression. Follow this fast and easy checklist to ensure it’s the best first impression possible! 

Curb Appeal Checklist:

Front Yard:

  • Remove any clutter in your yard.
  • Repair cracked or uneven driveway/walkway surfaces.
  • Clean up your yard, starting with mowing your law regularly and re-seeding, if needed. Weed and mulch flower beds to enhance the eye appeal of your property. Also consider buying some succulents or flower-filled plants.

How to give your home curb appeal

  • Clean the windows and walls of your home.
  • The first thing people see when they enter your home is your front door. Is it welcoming? If not, take the time to give it some new paint.
  • Ensure your eaves and downspouts are clear of debris and are in good condition.

Beautify Your Backyard

  • Power wash your backyard deck and walkways and any other necessary cosmetic fixes like painting, staining, or sealing. 
  • If you have a swimming pool, does it look good enough to swim in? If not, make sure to clean it up!
  • Do all the outside lights work? Replace any burned out bulbs and clean fixtures of dirt and cobwebs. 
  • Is there a shed in your backyard? If so, make sure it looks presentable and functional. 
  • Do windows and exterior doors need caulking? Patch it up.
  • Do you have decorative wooden poles on the porch? If the wood at the bottom is not in good condition, add a new coat of paint.

Look at your home as if you were a potential buyer, would you want to go past the front yard?

If not, follow this fast and easy checklist to make your home more inviting for potential buyers. Don’t let an easy fix be the reason your home doesn’t sell.
