houseWhen potential buyers arrive at your home, its curb appeal is the first thing they’ll notice. If your home looks attractive from the street, buyers will want to come inside and see more. Here are some tips to help you get started:

Upgrade Your Home’s Exterior

Head outside and look at your home from the street. Do you see any areas that look rundown, damaged, or outdated? If so, it’s time to perform some exterior improvements.

These improvements could include painting the exterior or doing some touch-ups. You may decide to paint your front door or window trim. You might want to paint or even replace your garage door to make it look more attractive from the street. For a shiny new look, you could even replace your door handle and door knocker.

Take Care of Your Lawn

The lawn is a big part of your home’s curb appeal. If your house looks great, but your lawn is brown, buyers may not be impressed. For a good first impression, ensure your lawn looks green and healthy for potential buyers.

To look their best, lawns need to be regularly maintained. This maintenance includes tasks like mowing, watering, fertilizing, and pest control. If you’re not sure how to maintain your lawn, or if you just don’t have the time, you can get help from the professionals.

Add Some Color to Your Garden

To add appeal to your gardens, plant flowers to add some pops of color. This doesn’t have to be an expensive or time-consuming venture. You can plant a few hardy types of flowers or shrubs. Pentas are one of the easiest flowers to grow in Florida, and their red, pink, lavender or white flowers will draw buyers’ eyes to your garden. If you like golden-yellow flowers, you could plant Coreopsis, Florida’s official state flower.

Add Exterior Lighting

To make sure your house looks good at night, too, add some exterior lighting. Place lights on either side of your front door, and consider adding low-voltage lighting along your driveway. Be careful not to add so much exterior lighting that it shines into interior rooms.

To increase buyers’ interest in your home, work to boost its curb appeal. If you need help improving the look of your lawn, call the professionals at Apex.
