3 Easy Ways to Add Curb Appeal to Your Home this Spring
Spring has sprung and just as new flowers are in bloom, we're seeing the housing market slowly start to mirror this growth. It's hard not to feel a spring in your step when you see new listings on the market. Whether you're selling your home or seeking new renters through a Las Vegas property management company, you'll find curb appeal is king this spring. First impressions are lasting and a great looking place can mean the difference between a house that sits vacant and a house that's snapped up quickly. Here are 3 easy ways to add curb appeal to your home this spring.
1.) Brighten Your Lights
You never know when a buyer or renter will drive by your place so a home that looks welcoming day or night is a great asset. Good lighting can help highlight the points of interest of your property and make the path to the front door seem more accessible and secure. Entryway lights are a great way to add some soft lighting to make your home appear more inviting and show off landscaping features like fountains and gardens. Las Vegas property managers suggest cleaning exterior light fixtures and replacing any burnt out bulbs. For an extra incentive, why not replace older style bulbs with more energy efficient bulbs?
2.) Flower Power
Sometimes a charming punch of color is all a home needs to grab the attention of renters and a great way to capture the eye of a buyer. Planting flowers along the front of the house, along the entryway, or even a few tasteful hanging baskets are an easy and inexpensive way to add warmth and visual impact to your property. Don't have a green thumb? Perennial container plants are the way to go for a seasonal and low maintenance option.
3.) Spring Cleaning
Spring cleaning isn't just for inside your home. Sometimes front yards need some TLC to remove non-essentials that can deter buyers or renters. Broken lawn ornaments, old vehicles, and rusty grills may look like a seemingly well placed feature to you, but for new buyers and renters it can be a huge turn off. Never underestimate the power of a good de-cluttering. In addition to removing dead plants, broken pavers, and trash be sure to move anything that doesn't visually enhance your front yard straight to the back.
Adding a little zing to your curb appeal may be just the thing your home needs to move this spring. But as a property owner, sometimes it's hard to look at your home in an objective light.
