Before listing your home for sale, improve your property’s marketability. From simple renovation projects to completely overhauling the house, improve curb appeal to increase property value and sell your home more quickly.

1. Add Greenery to Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Add color with flowers and greenery to improve your home’s curb appeal. Potential buyers will be more interested in a closer look at your home when it’s appealing from the road. Spruce up the flower beds and foliage before you show the property. If you don’t have the budget to completely redo the landscape, improve the exterior by adding window boxes and planters.

2. Care for your Lawn

In addition to planting flowers, improve your lawn. Vibrant, green grass attracts a buyer’s attention and shows that the property is well-cared for. Maintain your lawn by keeping it hydrated and healthy, and mow the grass on a regular basis.

3. Update the Exterior to Improve Curb Appeal

Pressure-wash your siding or give your house a fresh coat of paint to improve your home’s curb appeal. Whatever color you choose, a fresh paint application makes your home look new again.

When repainting your home, choose colors that make a statement. While neutral colors are a safe choice, using an accent of bright color makes your house appear more dynamic and more attractive to buyers.

4. Install Better Lighting

To improve your home’s curb appeal, design your exterior for the daytime and the evening. Transform dark entryways with brighter lighting. Install a new, modern fixture with a higher wattage to illuminate the front door.

Make sure there is adequate lighting around the house. Use floodlights to illuminate the driveway, LED path markers to light the sidewalks, and garden lighting to set the ambiance.

5. Clean the Gutters

Another important way to boost your home’s marketability is to clean the gutters. These fixtures gather debris and dirt from being exposed to the elements. With a good cleaning, inside and outside, you’ll make the gutters look as well-maintained as the rest of the home.
