The leaves have changed colors, fallen and in some areas snow is on the way. Despite the colder temperatures people still buy homes during the winter.
Don’t lose hope; put your home on the market to sell in the winter. When you decide to sell, let’s not forget curb appeal. Below are 3 Simple Tips to enhance the exterior of your home and perk homebuyers’ interest in your home.
Set The Stage
The outside of your home tells a story and create interest to the potential buyer. Imagine the outside as your stage. The lawn should be well maintained, bushes trimmed, grass edged and leaves raked. In areas where snow is prevalent, snow should be shoveled, driveways and walkways clear.
Bring All That Jazz or Pizazz
Adding some color to the front entrance of the home draws attention to your stage. Fresh coats of paint on the front door add some extra sparkle, for example try a bold color like red. D decorate the entry with potted plants and flowers such as mums or pansies in fall colors like orange, golden yellow and deep russet will bring pizazz.
Light, Camera and Action
A well-lit home appears to be inviting and welcoming. Make sure to replace non-working light bulbs in light fixtures around the home. With porch lights, flood lights and accent lights all functioning, a potential buyer will get an enhanced view of the home. It’s Showtime!!!
