Spring is a wonderful time of year in Charleston, with warming temperatures, beautiful sunny days and a plethora of flowers and foliage coming into bloom. It’s also the busiest time of year in real estate, and the perfect time to list your home for sale. Before you put your home on the market, you’ll want to up your curb appeal game. Follow these tips to make your home the prettiest on the block.
Address Repairs. It’s a good idea to have an inspection done on your home before putting it on the market so you can address repairs before your home is listed for sale. Address any exterior maintenance issues, big or small, so that potential buyers have a great first impression of your home before even stepping inside.
Consider Repainting. Fresh exterior paint, new siding, and updated or repainted shutters can make a huge impact on your home’s curb appeal. Before making any significant updates and renovations, speak with your real estate agent and they’ll be able to connect you with great local professionals.
Make Your Windows Sparkle. In addition to making your home look more polished from the outside, freshly-cleaned window panes also allow for the maximum amount of natural light to enter your home. Don’t forget to power wash your screens and shutters, too!
Freshen Up Landscaping. Nothing is more inviting and charming than beautifully done landscaping. Clear away any dead plants and leaves leftover from winter and consider adding bright and cheerful blooms to make your home really stand out.
Focus On Your Entryway. Make your front entryway the focal point of your home’s exterior. Consider a fresh coat of paint and new hardware on your front door as well as swapping out any outdated lighting fixtures. Make sure any outdoor furniture is clean and free of dirt and pollen, and keep seasonal decor subtle and tasteful so it doesn’t distract from your home’s features.
