Selling Your North Texas Home? Improve Curb Appeal!

north texas home

Everyone knows that the landscape and exterior of a home is the first impression people get. If your home looks neglected, there’s a good chance no one will want to come inside and take a look! If you’re contemplating selling your North Texas home, great curb appeal is essential. We’re not talking about mowing the lawn, although that’s certainly important. As trusted Flower Mound real estate professionals, we have a few tips that will help improve the curb appeal of your home immediately!

Spruce up the landscape. Even if you weren’t born with a green thumb, you can add a few vibrant flowers in big pots and mulch flower beds before planting some brightly colored flowers. If the hedges have gotten out of control, give them a good trim to tidy them up. Edge along the sidewalk for neat borders. It’s the small details that can make a big difference in your landscape.

Give the front door a fresh coat of paint. Nothing is more unappealing than peeling or dirty paint. Use a semi-gloss exterior in the same color to make your front door look like new, or go for a brighter hue if you really want to give your home more punch.

Has the mailbox seen better days? Yes, even the mailbox makes an impact. If the post needs replacing, do it. You can give the mailbox a facelift by painting, or replace it if it’s beyond hope.

New address numbers for the front of your home can enhance the overall style. Perhaps your house numbers are old and faded, or a bolder design or font would be more impressive. Big-box home improvement stores offer a wide array of sizes and styles, so “address to impress!”

Give your siding and decks a good scrubbing. Renting a pressure washer (or even buying one) is affordable, and nothing makes your home look better than removing the grime, dirt, and mold that can accumulate on your siding, decks, and even brick. Be gentle when washing siding to avoid damage. Decks require considerable work and money, so make yours look like new to “wow” potential home buyers.

These are all things you can do almost immediately to transform the exterior of your home and spruce up your landscape. Buyers who aren’t excited about the exterior of a home are far less likely to want to take a look at what’s inside. Up your home’s curb appeal without spending a fortune!

    Bill knows the market and provides excellent advice relative to what your home is "worth" and what the home you are considering making an offer on is worth. Bill provides accurate information so you are an immediate option to buyers (because you are not overpriced) and you are able to make an offer...

    This may be a good firm overall but my experience with Tyna Haygood specifically was one I regret. What she does not tell you is that once your home you are selling is under contract, she will not help you whatsoever with the purchase of your new home. She will not answer her phone and you will be left to negotiate on your own. Very unethical practices by this realtor.
