When selling your home, many things must be taken into account. You may need to make some small repairs like replacing outlet covers, installing new fans, or slapping on some new paint to freshen up well-worn walls.

You may even need to call in the experts to handle HVAC problems or fix wiring issues. All of these things add value to your home by sprucing up the interior living spaces. But, don’t forget about the outside of your home!

Power of Curb Appeal

As your Melbourne FL real estate firm, Real Estate Ink, provides buyers and sellers with a personal and customized touch and we want to do everything we can to assist you in buying the home of your dreams or selling your current home. Our team of experts knows what current buyers are looking for so, for the sellers out there, we want to give you some tips to get your home sold quickly.

Curb Appeal plays a significant role in how quickly your home sells and foregoing the outside could be detrimental to that sell. Curb Appeal refers to the exterior condition of your home and how appeasing and attractive it is to buyers. A gorgeous home that lacks curb appeal can sit on the market longer because buyers are weary of its looks from the outside. Don’t lose heart, however! There are simple things you can do to boost the attractiveness of your home’s exterior to match all the work you have done on the inside.

Keep Trees and Bushes Trimmed

Low hanging branches and overgrown bushes can translate into a lack-luster appearance for your home. Many buyers cruising your area in search of a new home will drive on by yours if your yard is unkempt.

Do yourself a favor and get to work cleaning up excess limbs and trimming back hedges. While you’re at it, keep your lawn freshly mowed and edged. This creates clean lines and an overall image of tidiness that buyers love. If you don’t feel confident the above simply call in the experts and have them get to work creating an exterior that potential buyers will adore.

Go Native

The state of your lawn speaks volumes to buyers. An overgrown yard with a hodgepodge of plants thrown in just won’t cut it. However, you need only consult with your local nursery to find native plants and blooms that will thrive in your yard with little to no maintenance on your end.

Once you have spoken with a landscape artist or figured out a design on your own and chosen your plants you can get to work. A few hours of yard work will yield fast results when it comes to selling your home. Buyers love well-kept yards with gorgeous and meticulously considered blossoms.

Focus on Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting can draw the eye to luscious landscapes. It can light walkways and provide an added measure of security for homeowners. Outdoor lighting extends living space, especially here in Brevard County, where we have the bonus of stellar weather almost year round. What’s not to love about that?

Choose lamps and carriage lights that match the style of your home and highlight architectural features. There are many choices available for homeowners to suit most any style of home. A few lights will go a long way in dressing up the exterior of your home and boost curb appeal as well.
