How To Increase Your Winter Curb Appeal
Whatever the season, your home’s curb appeal should make a good impression on potential buyers. Curb appeal can mean anything that makes your home more attractive to potential buyers, such as a tidy yard or ample outdoor lighting. Below are some helpful tips for increasing your home’s curb appeal during the winter season.
Keep It Light
Making sure your home has enough light will help the property seem more inviting for potential buyers. Outdoor lighting by your front door and front pathway, as well as lighting any unique features of your home are good ideas to increase your home’s curb appeal.
Plan For Bad Weather
Depending on where you live, winter can often include heavy snow, wind and rain. As well as protecting your home from the elements, there are many benefits to keeping your home tidy and well-maintained. Some tips include having a cleared driveway and walkway and some type of cover for your front door. Snow and ice can also be a safety hazard, for you and potential buyers. Try using salt to melt snow and ice, as well as clearing any sharp-looking icicles.
A garden doesn’t just have to flourish in the spring and summer. Adding winter-blooming plants to your front garden can add some much needed colour to your home’s winter look. There are many types of winter plants and flowers to try, including witch hazel, winter jasmine and pansies.
Update Your Front Entrance
The front entrance of your home is especially important, as it is one of the first aspects potential buyers will notice. Some tips to freshen up your front entrance include repainting your front door, replacing your welcome mat and cleaning your house numbers.
