How To Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal

If you’re planning on selling your home and moving to pastures new, there are many ways in which you can facilitate a quick sale and make sure that you get as close to the asking price as possible… and improving the curb appeal of the property is one of the best ways to go about it.

First impressions count for a lot and the exterior of the home is what prospective buyers will be greeted with initially, so it’s important to make sure that it is appealing, attractive and that reflects what the interior of the house is like, as well.

Thinking practically, ensuring that the driveway is fit for purpose, well looked after and properly maintained will help leave a favourable impression in people’s minds. 

There are lots of different materials you can use for driveways these days, everything from resin and tarmac to brick, concrete, cobblestone and more… and you can choose interesting and eye-catching layouts and design ideas to really create that special wow factor.

Beyond the driveway, you can use planting to great effect at the front of the house. Even if you don’t have any soil to work with, clever positioning of pots can be most welcoming indeed. Choosing beautifully fragranced plants will also help make your home attractive to househunters.

Another very easy little tip to follow is to simply just make sure that the front area of the home is clean and tidy. This is a signal to people that the inside of the house will be just as well looked after, so make sure the leaves are swept away, that cobwebs have been cleared and that the gutters are clean.

And finally, you might want to consider giving your front door a bit of a refresh. Something like a rich red or a warm yellow can help make the property seem more inviting… so if you have been struggling to sell, a new coat of paint could well make all the difference.
