The appearance of the exterior part of your home is what catches the eye of potential buyers. If it’s eye-catching and appealing, then it will attract home buyers and increase the desire for them to want to preview the interior of your home. The landscaping in the front of your home is what people look at as “curb appeal” and this is what matters to potential home buyers as they scout neighborhoods for their next home. 

If you want to attract more homebuyers when you put your home up for sale, then consider making a few minor improvements that can help boost interest and even value.  Below are a few tips that can do just that!

Diversity in the color of your yard

Fall is a great time to balance the colors in your landscaping. Adding a few hues of color into your already gold and red tones of your yard will really bring out the home. Consider adding a few pops of orange and white...perhaps some white flowers. Don’t forget to add some seasonal fun by layering with a few pumpkins. Consider adding a welcoming wreath on the front door - this can also add warmth to the home. 

Window Washing Services

Years of exposure to dirt and weather can age windows. Over time debris becomes a permanent part of your windows, which can obstruct the view from both the outside and inside. Consider hiring a window washing service to get your windows clean and shiny! Even from the outside, the windows should be spot and streak free. Don’t forget the screens - these should be cleaned as well!

Trees, Shrubs, and Gutters

Mid-September in Denver is when the leaves on our big beautiful trees begin to fall. Rake up those leaves and keep any trees and shrubs trimmed and pretty.  Trim dead branches out the trees to prevent them from coming down and causing damage in a winter storm. Don’t forget the gutters - leaves tend to build up in there and can cause havoc later, so be sure to clean gutters regularly.  

Happy Home Selling!
