Selling Your Home? These Easy Upgrades Can Up Your Curb Appeal


Curb appeal is extremely important when you’re selling a home—and it’s especially important now, in the midst of the pandemic, when the exterior of your home might be the only area potential buyers get to see in person.

A few simple upgrades to your home’s exterior can dramatically improve your curb appeal—and, as a result, dramatically improve your home’s overall appeal. But which upgrades pack the most punch for buyers?

A recent article from outlined some of the key upgrades seller’s should consider to up their home’s curb appeal, including:

Landscaping. A little landscaping goes a long way. While a professional landscaper can definitely upgrade your lawn in a way that improves your curb appeal, if that’s not in your budget, taking a few hours to rake leaves, trim bushes, and tidy up your lawn can make a big difference.

Exterior paint. A fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your home can work wonders for your curb appeal. When choosing colors, make sure they complement the colors inside your home; while your exterior and interior paints don’t have to perfectly match, you also don’t want them to clash.

Outdoor lighting. Not only will installing outdoor lighting make your property safer to navigate, but it can also make your home feel more warm and inviting—instantly increasing your curb appeal.

The Takeaway:
So, what does this mean for you? If you’re thinking about selling your home, consider tackling these projects. Improving your curb appeal will make your home more appealing to buyers overall—and can help you sell your home more quickly and profitably.

I have been a South Florida resident for over 40 years (not quite a native, but close) and love to share my 19 years of experience with you, whether a Seller or Buyer.

Having been emersed in the Tri-County area, I have special expertise in Broward County including horse farms to the West and ocean access properties to the East, while specializing in the Davie, Cooper City, Weston & Southwest Ranches areas in West Broward. I also come equipped with certifications in Relocation as well as Strategic Marketing Specialties.

I was selling real estate for 17 years prior to joining Coldwell Banker.  I learned so much during this tenure! I think they were the building blocks for the strong relationship I have now, since early 2018. Coldwell Banker is the perfect match for me and it feels like home! I take much pride in my role here and this is the perfect combination of longtime knowledge of the business and extended cutomer service.

My favorite part of all of this is how I treat my clients. I know that most everyone likes that 'old-fashioned' customer service and with this, I am here to deliver. I pay close attention to clients' needs while making sure Seller's homes stand out from the rest and Buyer's needs are met while choosing which homes will suit them best. 

As always, I am ready when you are. Whether it's right now or a year down the road, I am here and if you want someone that will get the job done without all the hype and drama, you've come to the right place :).
