When people decide to sell their home they often focus on the inside, doing renovations, decluttering, and organizing.  But with spring’s arrival, this is a great time to think about making the outside of your home as attractive as possible.

Five Tips for Maximizing Your Home’s Curb Appeal


First, let’s look at landscaping. Springtime, from mid-April to mid-May, is a great time to seed your lawn. 

This is also a great time of year to prune your shrubs and start planting flowers. And get rid of any leaves you missed in the fall.


You should also look at the state of your driveway. If there are stains on your driveway or clear signs of weathering, you might want to look into resealing your driveway. This can really improve its appearance.


Next, you want to think about lighting. Showings often happen in the evening, so you want your home to be well lit. Think about choosing a bright porch light, and if you have a garage you could install a few lights above it.

You could also get a few lights on your lawn pointing towards the front of your house to make it really pop out.

Seasonal Decor

Adding some seasonal decoration is also a great idea. If you have chairs or wreaths for your door or garden decorations, now is a fantastic time to put them out. 


And finally, you may want to paint your home. If your paint is peeling and outdated, your home will repel buyers.  You can make a great first impression by choosing an attractive popular colour that catches the eye and shows at first glance that this home has been taken care of.


So in closing, you really want to get into the mind of the buyer. You would want to see a home that is attractive, well-kept, fresh, and inviting. A home with real curb appeal.
