If you’re like most home sellers in the Tampa Bay area, you already know the importance of curb appeal. Homes with better curb appeal get more showings. More showings can often mean a faster sale, and in some cases, higher offers.
Put Planters on the Porch
Placing a pair of matching planters on either side of the front door gives your home an inviting look. The symmetry is pleasing to the eye, and live plants are always attractive. Choose greenery or flowers that complement your home’s existing colors.
Invest in a New Mailbox
A new mailbox can update the overall look of your home in a very subtle way. It’s often the first thing people see, particularly if your mailbox is at the end of your driveway. No matter where it’s located, a fresh new mailbox free from dents, rust or dirt is sure to make your home look well kept.
Refresh Your House Numbers
New, stylish house numbers can subtly give your home a polished appearance. Consider this especially if your current numbers are tarnished, chipped or otherwise look aged. Be aware that you may have to clean or repaint where the numbers were, depending on the size and shape of the new ones.
Update the Porch Light
A new porch light can make the front of your house look fresh and clean. LED fixtures are a good choice, or simply use an LED lamp in a traditional fixture.
