Curb Appeal: 4 Ways to Beautify Before Selling



Curb Appeal Color Selling Adding Color Can Lead Buyers to Your Door

Spring is a time of renewal and fresh starts.  If you are considering selling your house this year, spring is also the time to renew your home's facade and make it fresh for prospective buyers.   As inventory creeps up and listings are hitting the market, there are ways that you can utilize the color pallette to enhance your curb appeal.  Check out these 4 ways to harness the potential of the color wheel!


1. Freshen up the paint.


For an investment of around $40-$70, the cost of a gallon of no VOC paint, you can enliven key areas of your exterior that are likely to make lasting first impressions.  A lipstick red or patriot blue coat of paint on your front door can create a welcoming yet lively entrance for prospective buyers.  Repainting existing trim or deck rails also demonstrates a commitment to home maintenance that buyers appreciate.



  1. Touch up the yard.



Winter leaves your yard dull, lifeless and littered with plant debris.  Get the most of the first spring rains by laying down grass seed and straw to bring the green back to life.  Provide contrast to the green by spreading a thick layer of fresh, dark mulch.  For a pop of spring color, plants that can be planted in early spring for late spring color in the southeast include pansies, primrose, and colorful evergreen ornamental grasses.

  1. Accessorize with colorful outdoor living accents.



Draw attention to the leisure opportunities in your yard with colorful accent pieces.  A hammock in a vibrant color that is made of durable fabric can highlight the house's atmosphere of relaxation.  Similarly, colorful adirondack chairs placed in a well-landscaped corner of the yard create a peaceful retreat that potential buyers will notice.




  1. Highlight the fixtures that make your house feel homey.




By adding large, colorful or shiny house numbers near your front door, you will make your home's address memorable to potential buyers.  Similarly, a mailbox is often the first structural detail that a homebuyer may notice when pulling up to your curb.  With a clean, colorful and distinctive mailbox  set in a tidy landscaped bed, you can begin to demonstrate the charm that your home has to offer.
