How to Improve your Curb Appeal in the Winter

The majority of potential buyers will drive by your property, before deciding to schedule a showing to see the inside of your home. While some may think of sprucing up their exterior during the spring and summer, your curb appeal efforts are extremely important for attracting buyers, all year round. The best real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, Missouri are here to help make your curb appeal efforts worth it! Eagle’s Nest Realty has provided some helpful ways to increase the curb appeal of your property, during the winter months!

Clear A Path

Especially during the winter months, it is imperative to keep your sidewalk and walk ways clean. From snow to leaves, there are a number of slipping hazards that present themselves, in the winter. Ensure a path is clear, to your front door, to welcome buyers.

Remove Leaves

Although you may have done a big leaf removal clean-up this past autumn, a few may still fall throughout the winter months. To make your lawn stand out, try to keep up with the leaves that continue to fall off the trees. A clean, well-maintained lawn helps your property stand out, when potential buyers drive by the home.

Clean Out Gutters

You want the outside of your home to be a great representation of the inside. Be sure to clean out your gutters on a regular basis to keep twigs, leaves, and other debris out of the drains. This shows that you care about your house and keep it maintained, year round. Especially when your home is for sale, you want to showcase the condition, which includes maintaining your gutter draining system.

Add Lighting

The sun sets early during the winter months; you want to ensure your space is well-lit. Some potential buyers work during the day, therefore will drive by your property as the sun is setting or after dark. You want to create an inviting space with lights up the walkway. The lighting also offers a safety factor, to ensure the walkway is well-lit and easy to navigate.

Incorporate Plants

While the colorful flowers may not be in bloom, you can incorporate winter plants into your landscape. Cold weather plants, such as pansies or witch hazel can give a little life to your exterior display. Highlight your landscape and other features of your home with winter plants, to add some color to the drab winter lawn and landscape.

Curb appeal is a major factor in attracting potential buyers to your home. When you have a lawn and exterior that stands out, you are more apt to get buyers in the door. Now that you have some of these helpful tips in mind, you are ready to make your home stand out, from the curb.
