10 Quick Curb Appeal Fixes to Sell Your House Faster

Sell Your House Faster


Could your home use a bit of extra curb appeal? Maybe you have dreamed of a complete exterior overhaul, but the financial reality of the renovation makes your unappealing exterior completely unchangeable (at least for now). Your home’s exterior is like the cover of a book, setting the stage for what’s inside. The good news is you might not need to change everything. Maybe all you need is a few simple additions or changes. Here are ten curb appeal updates you can do to help down play what is unappealing, and help you sell your house faster.

Looking to sell your house faster ? Follow these steps:

1) Take care of your lawn

It’s very important to note that lawn care is a big part of maintaining curb appeal. Take care of regular maintenance of your lawn by mowing the grass, raking off leaves, and pulling weeds. Keeping your lawn properly watered will prevent brown spots. As long as you keep up with it and are proactive, lawn care won’t turn into a huge project. Consider artificial turf if you live somewhere dry where grass has a tough time taking hold.

2) Paint your screen door

Is your painted door blocked by your ugly screen door? Paint it the same color as your door so the color will stand out. Consider switching out a standard glass screen door for a wooden screen door that can be painted. This will give your home a little bit of architectural detail without having to change your door.

3) Clean your gutters

Clean gutters both inside and out, clearing out any debris and really scrub the outsides until they look good as new. You’ll be amazed and be in awe at what a little elbow grease can do to your gutters.

4) Upgrade your house numbers

While house numbers might be a small piece of your front exterior, they are important for both function and style. Quickly modernize your house by removing your old house numbers and replacing them with something that has a bit more energy. First and foremost, it’s how people find your house!

5) Fix it up

Take care of any small repairs, like burned out light bulbs, or scuffed up paint. Even these small flaws can stand out when home buyers are viewing your home, so it’s worth taking a day to fix them. Walk around the outside of your house taking note of anything that requires a quick fix, and make sure you have the tools you need and get the work done.

6) Act like a home buyer

Walk around your entire home’s exterior like you were buying the home yourself. Take notes on what looks bad and needs repairing, replacing or cleaning. Get in your car and drive by slowly from both directions during the day and night. You might see something you’ve never noticed before, like a broken window or neighbors dog.

7) Look Up at your roof

Most homeowners don’t give their roofs much attention, but the roof is an important curb appeal item that home buyers do notice. Is yours missing any shingles, or covered in moss? A good cleaning to remove moss & algae, or if necessary, a roof replacement will up your home’s curb appeal factor significantly.

8) Plant Some Color

Except for the winter, some types of annual plants are always blooming. “Brighten up your porch planters, window boxes and front beds with some colorful flowers for an instant face-lift. A few inches of dark mulch or top soil can brighten up the garden beds beautifully.

9) Add Some Paint

Paint is fairly cheap per gallon, and painting the front door, trim and shutters is a great way to freshen up the look of your home. Paint the mail box, mail slot, front door to add that extra touch as well.

10) De-Clutter Your Driveway

Lot’s of cars in the driveway shows potential buyers that the house isn’t big enough to store everything. It’s also distracting in online pictures. At the very least, remove the cars for exterior photos of the home.
