How to Stun Them at the Curb

  • Give your exterior a fresh coat of paint. The outside of your home could be the first thing potential buyer notices from the curb – make it beautiful! 
  • While you’re at it, show your front door, trim and shutters some TLC as well! A fresh coat of paint on these features will make your home look polished and accentuate the paint you’ve just put on the exterior. Paint your door a bold color for unexpected flair!
  • Pay special attention to your landscaping. Trees, flowers, shrubs and a green lawn will give passers-by faith that you care for your home well. 
  • Remove ugly stains from your driveway. If your driveway has seen better days, now’s the time to give it a pick-me-up!
  • Update your mailbox. You’ve got mail! Give your box a fresh coat of paint or consider replacing it completely with one that matches your home’s style and personality.
  • Mount your house number. Is your number painted on the curb? Consider purchasing a custom one you can mount on the house itself.
  • Install flower boxes beneath your windows. Flowers beneath your windows add the perfect punch of color to your home.
  • Invest in beautiful exterior lighting. This tip is perfect for those night-owl house hunters! 
  • Go “keyless.” Investing in a keyless door lock is a great update! Homebuyers will feel secure with this modern technology at the front door. Mr. Electric can help with the installation!
  • Add a fountain to create interest. Once you’ve tackled some of the basics, have fun with creative updates! Adding a fountain or other artistic elements adds something unique to your curb appeal. Keep it simple, though. Too much can feel overly busy and distracting!
  • Fancy up the front. From rocking chairs to welcome mats, your finishing touches will solidify a potential homebuyer’s choice to step inside.
