.On every home, the very first thing that every person will be looking is its curb. When it comes to home staging, this part of the home is one of the important places on where we put focus on because this very place itself is one of the deciding factors if a potential buyer will proceed on looking into the house itself or will turn around. In other words, home curb is where home stagers initially make their first impression to potential buyers.
Below are some tips to make your curb appealing to incoming potential buyers that will visit your house
1. Decorate your front entrance to make it more inviting.
When a potential buyer is already at your doorstep and is about to ring your doorbell or knock to your door, this give them enough time to quickly evaluate your front entry and to check how clean and welcoming it is.
Placing some plants, flowers or decorations and having a nice mat at the door can make a difference on your front entry.
2. Rejuvenating your front door by cleaning or painting.
While the potential buyer is still at your doorstep, they will also have enough time to assess your front door. Some buyers do make quick judgement by simply looking at the front door itself. Cleaning your front door can improve its appeal and helps make your home more welcoming. You may repaint your front door if needed.
3. Upgrade your porch and garage lights.
Having bright and shiny new lights on your exterior gives your home a striking impression. Just look for fairly inexpensive ones. Or at least clean and brighten. If it’s glass lights, wash them so that they can sparkle.
4. Clean or buy a new mailbox.
For some, it’s just a home front accessory. But for others, it’s an icon of a modern home. A sharp and enticing mailbox upon approaching a home makes a beautiful impression. You may clean, paint or just get a new one.
5. Make sure that your house numbers are clear, crisp and easy to read.
You do not want your buyers to be lost within your area or missed your home just because they cannot see your house number. Making sure that your address is clear, easy to find and your house number to look sharp and crisp give buyers the impression that you are keen on keeping the details on which do impress buyers. They are cheap if yours need an update or just worn out.
6. Make sure your deck is clean and do look fresh.
There are a lot of ways to do this. Besides cleaning, you may try to rearrange your furniture or update any fixtures. Try to research online to find more ideas.
7. Take care of your “green” lawn.
A beautiful lawn makes a striking impression to home buyers and as you can see, front lawns are used in some media advertisements relating to home. It’s an icon that gives an impression that you do have a good and beautiful home. Make sure that your lawn is trimmed and always green. If your lawn is bare and needs treatment then hire a lawn care professional to revitalize your lawn. As an alternative, you can use lawn paint. This new trend is environmentally friendly and biodegradable.
8. Make your landscape look beautiful and inviting by trimming hedges.
Keep your hedges trimmed and your landscape clear of unneeded dirt and overgrowth. A bit of landscaping does make wonders when beautifying your landscape.
9. Add some brick and/or stone work to your home.
If there are some parts of your home exterior that seems to be pale or plain then you may upgrade its look by adding some brick or stone work on it. Using faux stone panels should do the trick and it doesn’t need to be expensive.
10. Light up your curb and pathway.
If your pathway is long then having lights on it will really help not only to buyers but to yourself specially at night time. Some home buyers do pass buy to a home that they have seen online at evening after their work. Putting up lights will set an inviting tone and gives it a “WOW” factor. You may use solar lights. They are inexpensive.
