7 Super-Easy Curb Appeal Tips to Help You Sell Your Home

If you’re like many people who are thinking about selling a home in Vero Beach, you’ll be glad to know that it’s easy to make a great first impression by using these seven super-easy curb appeal tips.

7 Super-Easy Curb Appeal Tips to Help You Sell Your Home

First things first: Talk to your REALTOR® about any exterior (and interior) improvements you need to make before you dive in and start spending cash. You may be surprised to learn that you don’t need to spend as much as you think you do to impress prospective buyers. Then, you can explore these seven super-easy curb appeal tips to help you sell your home fast (and for the best possible profit):

  1. Pressure-wash the driveway and sidewalk
  2. Use potted plants to add a splash of color to your porch
  3. Paint your front door
  4. Invest in new house numbers
  5. Update your front door hardware
  6. Clean up your lights
  7. Cut and edge the grass

Here’s a closer look at each.

Curb Appeal Tip #1: Pressure-wash the driveway and sidewalk

Impress prospective buyers with a super-clean driveway and walkway by renting a pressure washer. If you’re not comfortable doing the job yourself, hiring a pro may not be too expensive. You can ask your REALTOR for a local referral.

Curb Appeal Tip #2: Use potted plants to add a splash of color to your porch

Pick up a few potted plants at your favorite home improvement store and put them on either side of your front door. If you’re feeling even more adventurous – and if you’re sure you can take care of them – add a few outside your porch, as well.

Curb Appeal Tip #3: Paint your front door

Most of us take our front doors for granted, and we don’t notice minor scuffs, scratches and dings. You don’t have to replace your entire front door, but it may benefit from a fresh coat of paint.

Curb Appeal Tip #4: Invest in new house numbers

While you’re at your favorite home improvement store looking for potted plants, check out their selection of house numbers. These simple and super-affordable pieces are easy to put on yourself.

Curb Appeal Tip #5: Update your front door hardware

Again, at the home improvement store, check out new door handle and deadbolt combinations. Standard models are pretty inexpensive, though you could splurge and buy a keypad to install. 

Curb Appeal Tip #6: Clean up your lights

If the light fixtures outside your home have seen better days, clean them up. Eliminate cobwebs and check the covers for dead bugs. If you update your door hardware, consider finding matching light fixtures.

Curb Appeal Tip #7: Cut and edge the grass

Your grass should be neatly trimmed and edged while your house is on the market. You don’t want to give prospective buyers the impression that lawn care is tough to keep up on – or that you’ve neglected to take care of other parts of your home.
