Fun Spring Ideas To Boost Curb Appeal

It is finally spring, aka project season!

There are numerous fun and easy ways to enhance your home’s curb appeal. Simple upgrades can combine to create a polished look you’ll be proud of. Boosting curb appeal is especially important if you’re selling your home. From landscaping to cosmetic enhancements, here are some projects to try that are not only easy, but you will enjoy doing!

Paint The Front Door

Give your entryway a pop of color by painting your front door to stand out while still playing nice with the rest of your house’s hues!

Add Window Shutters

If your home lacks shutters, installing them will jazz up the exterior with symmetry and flair.

Update Your House Numbers Display

House numbers are easy to make or replace, but make all the difference. A great way to make a big impact is to match the new numbers with the finish of your exterior light fixtures.

Update Existing Light Fixtures

Lighting has a significant effect on your home’s curb appeal. Make a statement on your porch with large lighting fixtures, and add accent lighting to your greenery to create a cozy, yet elegant atmosphere.

Make an Inviting Seating Area

Look at this step as “dressing up your porch”. Add the cozy feel of a living room with rugs, throw pillows, and end tables. Some color, texture, and print will perfectly brighten the porch for spring.

These are just a few things to spruce up your home’s curb appeal, and will make all the difference. So get out some tools, go shopping, and most importantly..keep it fun!

How To Prepare Your Home For Sale – Spring Market Boom

Steps To Take Before

Listing Your Home

With spring approaching, it’s a wonderful time to start thinking about getting your home ready for the busy spring market. We often get asked, “What should we do first?” Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here are six friendly tips from the specialists at Tina Morris & Co. to help you get started:

  1. Declutter: Start by decluttering your home to make it look more spacious. You can donate unused items, sell them online, or store them in a storage unit.
  2. Depersonalize Your Home: As much as you may enjoy looking at your family photos and favorite art, any personalized items can certainly be off-putting to prospective buyers. Seeing personalization in a home can make it difficult for buyers to envision themselves living in the home.
  3. Deep Clean: A deep clean of your home can make a big difference in how it looks and feels. Make sure to clean all the nooks and crannies, including windows, baseboards, and appliances.
  4. Paint: A fresh coat of paint can make your home look more updated and appealing to potential buyers. Choose neutral colors that can appeal to a wide range of tastes.
  5. Curb Appeal: First impressions matter, so make sure to spruce up your curb appeal. This can include adding a fresh coat of paint to your front door, planting flowers, and cleaning up your yard.
  6. Find a Good Real Estate Agent: The first and arguably most important step to listing your home is to find a reputable real estate agent. Referrals from trusted sources are usually the best ways to find a good agent. Working with a trusted real estate agent is the key to a smooth and successful transaction.

Prepare your home early and confidently for the spring market boom. Remember, the early bird gets the worm, so starting early will give you the best chance of success. You’ve got this!
