Curb Appeal Projects to Get Ready for the Holidays
Yard decorations are a great tradition, but before you start pulling boxes out of the attic and untangling lights, make sure your home’s exterior looks great to host your holiday vision. Here are some curb appeal projects to consider.
Paint your front door.
Giving your door a fresh coat of paint or switching to a new color entirely is a quick, easy way to boost your curb appeal and add a splash of color to your home’s exterior.
Add some colorful flowers.
Most people associate flowers with spring, but there are plenty of beautiful fall and winter flowers that can brighten your front yard.
Maintain your yard
Make sure your grass is short, leaves are raked, and any paths are edged with a nice, crisp border.
Place some extra lights.
Some decorative lights will add a touch of beauty and enhance the safety of your yard as you and your guests are able to navigate more easily! Consider lining the walkway with solar lights or installing some extra lighting on the outside of your home.
3 Tips to Sell Your Home During the Holidays
Many buyers want to celebrate the holidays in their new home. Make sure yours makes their must-see list with these 3 tips!
Use minimal holiday decorations.
Your holiday decorations are likely completely different from your potential buyer’s decorations, and since you want them to picture themselves in your home, it pays to keep your holiday decorations to a minimum. A wreath on the door and a few seasonal garlands can give your home a festive feel without overwhelming buyers.
Find the right price.
Buyers looking for homes during the holidays don’t have a lot of spare time to haggle over home prices. They’re often going to look for homes that already fit their needs and reflect the current condition of the home. The right price will be low enough to attract buyers and high enough to show that you know what your home is worth.
Get fresh listing photos.
Make sure your listing photos reflect the season. If your home is up for the holidays, consider including some special photos highlighting the fireplace, reading nook, or other cozy features.
