When listing your home, you hope that it sells quickly and for a good price. Improvements and repairs make your property more attractive to potential homebuyers. If you want your house to stand out, focus on these ways to boost curb appeal.

1. Focus On Symmetry

Symmetry has a significant visual impact on the exterior of your property. Plant trees on either side of the pathway. Add planters on both sides of the front steps to draw attention to the entrance. Installing matching wall lanterns on each side of the door will create a welcoming entryway.

2. Install New House Numbers

House numbers can cause the home to look outdated if they’re rusted or loose. Install new numbers to boost your curb appeal. House numbers are affordable and simple to install. Select a font that complements the architecture and style of your home.

3. Boost Curb Appeal with Outdoor Furniture

Create an inviting look with comfy outdoor furniture. Furniture should be clean and in good condition. The size of the furniture should reflect the size of the porch. If the porch is small, a cafe table with a couple of chairs works nicely. For larger porches, a porch swing or rocking chairs add a classic touch. Porch furniture helps the potential buyer picture themselves relaxing there.

4. Power Wash the House

Power wash the exterior of the house to remove excess dirt and grime. By cleaning the siding or vinyl, you’ll brighten up the color of the building and boost curb appeal. You can rent a power washer from a home improvement store or hire a professional service to do it for you.

5. A New Mailbox Helps Boost Curb Appeal

An old, dingy mailbox makes a property look like it isn’t well-maintained. Install a new mailbox that complements the style of your house. Add your house number so that interested buyers driving by will be able to easily locate your home.

6. Paint the Garage Door

The garage door affects a buyer’s first impression. Refresh your garage door by painting it or staining the wood to boost curb appeal. Wash the garage door and allow it to dry completely before applying paint or stain.

A well-kept home is more appealing to buyers. With the right upgrades to boost curb appeal, you’ll feel confident about showing your property to potential buyers.
