It’s the start of October, and as Halloween approaches – and autumn wraps fully around us – we thought it’s the perfect time to talk Fall Curb Appeal. There are hundreds of ways to spruce up the front of your home, and you don’t have to take our word for it. Pinterest offers its own variety of boards dedicated to the very subject.
It’s important to look at your curb through the eyes of a buyer. To help, we’ve pulled together our Top 3 ways to increase seasonal curb appeal.
- Mums the Word. There are so many autumnal plantings available to brighten up the walkway and door space on the front of a home. From mums to pumpkins to horns of plenty, purchase or design an arrangement that adds color and comfort to your home.
- Exterior Upgrade. Start by adding a fresh coat of paint to your door and trim, then choose tasteful door wreaths or hangings to ring in the season. Positively Splendid does a superb job of sharing with DIY projects sure to brighten any front porch or area. You might also consider power washing any siding and fixing any dents in your front door. A little fixing can go a long way.
- Manicure Your Lawn. Be sure to remove all the twigs, rake the fallen leaves, and remove any distracting debris. Landscaping is 1 of 6 home improvements that are worth your time & money. As you clean the inside of your home for visiting prospective buyers, so should you clean the exterior – and be sure to trim the shrubs!
Don’t be afraid to tap into your creative side as you adorn your front porch and yard with seasonal curb appeal. Remember to have fun, and even if you don’t have an abundance of outdoor space, a little decorating can go a long way!
