You might be wondering, what exactly is kerb appeal?
Ultimately, kerb appeal is the desirability of your home’s exterior. And if first impressions are anything to go by, it can really count for a lot when potential buyers come round to visit your property.
Here, we share our top tips to ensure your home looks its best when it’s placed on the market.
Your front door is the first entry point for visitors, and you want it to be as welcoming and inviting as possible. A shabby-looking door with peeling paint, stains and mould will instantly turn buyers off, but fortunately a lick of paint is all it takes to transform a worn frontage.
If you’re not sure what colour to paint it, we recommend sticking with classic colours such as grey, white, navy or pastel-green. Only opt for something more vibrant and ‘out there’ if it reflects the interior of the property too.
Cleaning your windows not only gives good impressions on the outside, but on the inside too! Sparkling clean windows will instantly let more light into your property, creating an overall brighter environment.
If your house viewings often take place in the evenings, it’s important to make sure your outdoor lighting is up to scratch so that potential buyers can view your property in its full glory.
Outdoor lighting can also help thwart crime. As it acts as a deterrent for burglars, house viewers will instantly feel at ease when they see it.
House-hunters will breathe a sigh of relief if they see a neat and tidy front garden after arriving at your property. As well as creating a positive impression of the inside of your home, a lack of weeds also indicates that the property’s greenery is under control which is something that every potential buyer will value.
As well as removing weeds, we would recommend going one step further by adding colourful potted plants, hanging baskets and pebbled sections to really boost your home’s kerb appeal.
