How to Increase Curb Appeal this Fall

If your home is for sale this fall, curb appeal can have a huge impact on the sale of your house. Many potential buyers in the area will actually drive by your property before deciding whether he or she wants to schedule a showing of the inside. Grab the attention of those driving by your home by boosting your curb appeal efforts. A little extra attention to the exterior of your home can help it stand out from other homes on the market. The best real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, MO have provided some helpful ways to help increase your curb appeal this fall.

Plant Flowers

While many think of flowers as a spring staple, there are a number of autumn flowers that you can plant outside your home this fall. Whether you have a flower garden or potted plants, adding colorful blooms to your home can catch the eye of those passing by. You can also add color to your landscape by placing flowers around your mailbox.

Rake Leaves

It is the time of year where leaves are constantly falling. While everyone understands leaves fall this time of year, and likely have a similar situation at their own house, try to keep up with leaf removal. This can help your yard and entire home appear clean and neat. Raking leaves on a regular basis can help make the removal process less painful. It can be a daunting task to rake and bag up leaves after collecting in your yard for months.

Draw Attention to Door

There are a number of ways to draw attention to your front door. Painting the door a bright color is an easy way to gain visibility from the road. If you not committed to a bold paint color, consider adding an eye catching fall display to your entryway. A few pumpkins and corn stalks can go along way for adding a festive display to your front porch.

Clean Exterior of Home

This is a great time of year to do a little fall clean-up of the exterior of your home, especially if you plan to sell. Power wash debris that has built up on the side of your house over the summer and fall months. Washing your deck or patio is a good idea as well, for a clean look when potential buyers look at your home.

Add Lighting Outdoors

Lighting outside of your home can help draw attention to your house in the evening. A light near your front door helps to illuminate your front porch and adds a safety factor for those entering and exiting your house. Also, adding lighting can help catch the eye of those potential buyers driving by your property. Whether you want to light up your walkway or your landscape display, adding lights can help increase your curb appeal in the evening.

Post House Number

A house number displayed nicely on your home can help assure potential buyers are looking at the right home, as they drive by your property. If a home is hard to identify or locate, buyers driving by may get frustrated, or distracted by a different home for sale in the neighborhood. An inexpensive way to add to your curb appeal efforts is incorporating a house number.
