Are you hoping to sell your home soon? Then follow these budget-friendly tips to ensure buyers fall in love with it at first sight.
Tidy & repair
A good tidy-up is the easiest way to enhance your property’s kerb appeal. Think weeding the driveway, clearing the gutters, chucking away any junk or broken outdoor furniture, and rustling up a DIY bin enclosure. Now is the time to note anything that needs fixing before viewers come around, too.
Clean up the exterior
Even the most architecturally impressive house can look drab if the exterior elements, such as walls and enclosing fencing, are dirty. Consider borrowing or hiring a pressure washer (if you don’t own one already) to ensure your home sparkles under the sun. And don’t forget to clean and repaint your window frames if needed.
Make your front door pop
The front door is the natural focal point of most properties, so if it’s looking drab, viewers may assume the interior is too. So why not repaint it, upgrade the furniture, and buy a nice new doormat to make an excellent first impression?
Revamp the front lawn
If you have a front lawn, keep it looking clipped and add some colour and texture with planters or terracotta pots, ornamental grasses, and fragrant perennials such as lavender and rosemary.
