Remove any excess items you have laying around

Now, we are talking about patio furniture, lawn decorations as well as anything else that is making the yard look cluttered. If you don’t have the storage space on your property you can turn to us.

Look at the lawn

How does it look? It is full and green or is it patchy and thin? You should seriously consider filling in any bare spots on the lawn. A few handfuls of grass seed should do the trick if you don’t have to put all new sod down as that can be expensive.

Trim the flowers

If you have a garden that is getting a little out of control you need to do something about it. If you don’t have any flower planted you should consider changing that. You don’t need to go crazy, but some blooms can go a long way towards making the home feel more welcoming.

Front door

Here is something most people don’t think of. You want a door that is inviting. Think about it, that is the first part of the home potential buyers are going to touch, you want to make that moment great.

You could replace the whole door but that might not be necessary. You could repaint it, replace the hardware or just clean it really well to make it look it’s best again. As long as you make that front door look good, you are on the right track.

Driveway and walkways

It is essential that all walkways and the driveway look neat and well manicured. That means you may have to pull some weeds and do some edging. Also, consider power washing. This can really make the concrete look like new again.

Use these tips to help you learn how to create curb appeal before you put your home on the market and you might see a bidding war.
