Curbs with Appeal

Send a welcoming message to potential buyers by creating the most inviting entrance possible. Small details can make a big difference in how a buyer perceives the way the outside of your home is maintained.

Consider a new color for your front door that enhances your home and contrasts with the existing colors of your home. As an example, if your home is white with black shutters, try a red or yellow door color.


If finding the time to care for your lawn becomes problematic, there are many landscaping companies throughout the region that are reasonably priced.To enhance your entrance, add greenery in hanging pants, such as a fern or by installing new shrubbery along your walkways. Be sure to keep your lawn mown, edged and free of weeds or old planting. Take extra time to walk the lawn and pull weeds, pinch dead flower tops and begin planting flowers that will maintain color until the warmer summer weather arrives, like pansies.

When listing your home this spring, remember that potential buyers show more interest in a home with landscaping and signs of a yard maintained than a home without any plantings. After all, the first thing a homebuyer sees is the front of your home so take the time to make a welcoming impression.
