Creating Curb Appeal 

By Shane Collins

The three biggest factors in what a home will sell for are location, kitchen, and curb appeal. If you are trying to maximize the value of your home, there isn’t anything you can do about location, and let’s face it, kitchen remodels aren’t cheap. Curb appeal on the other hand makes a huge difference in whether someone will even schedule an appointment to view your home AND it can be done on a budget!

The photos above are from a listing we just sold on at 43 Forest Creek Circle. The sellers did an amazing job of transforming the outside of this home from something that looked tired and dated to the gem of the block!

First they cut away the enormous bushes that were blocking the view of the home and the windows. They replaced the shrubs with low maintenance, colorful plants and flowers, even eliminating some of the lawn space for planter beds requiring less water. They put a fresh coat of paint on the exterior of the home and made the front door stand out with some color. What a transformation! The sellers worked the same magic inside, but we’ll save that for a future blog. Needless to say, this home sold quickly at a premium price!

So what can you do on a budget and with time constraints to maximize the value of your home?

  • First, clear clutter! Clutter removal is not just an inside task. . .we have it outside to.
