4 Ways to Boost Winter Curb Appeal
Curb appeal comes naturally to many homes during the summer months, when the sun is shining bright and the gardens are in full bloom, However, it can be difficult to make your home look appealing when it’s covered in white fluffy stuff.
It’s possible to create great curb appeal even during the coldest season of the year. Follow the tips below and you’ll end up with the best looking home on your block this winter.
You might be tempted to deck your front porch and yard with holiday decorations, but please try not to overdo it. Subtle winter decorations can make your home standout. Try placing some silver orbs in your garden, colorful ribbons or white lights around the shrubbery or a beautiful handmade wreath on your front door.
A tidy lawn
Just because it’s cold outside, doesn’t mean that you can slack off on curb appeal. It is important to keep your lawn looking neat, especially when you’re selling your home.
You’ll never know when a potential buyer will drive by. Keep your home’s deck and patios as clear as possible. Also, don’t forget to rake up leaves and remove any fallen tree branches. Remember, a leaf-blanketed lawn looks unkempt to guests and potential buyers. If you live in a place that gets a lot of snowfall, make sure that the walkway and driveway is free from snow.
Lights in the snow
The days are shorter during the winter months. Since most agents meet with their clients after office hours, it’s more likely that they’ll view your home after sunset. Welcome prospective buyers with lights leading up to the front door. Holiday lights also go a long way in brightening up your home’s exterior.
Colorful front door
When everything is covered in snow, nothing stands out like a bright, clear red. Paint your front door and trim this bold hue to make it more inviting and to draw attention to the entrance of your home.
