Selling Your Flower Mound Home? Add Curb Appeal

flower mound home

As experienced Flower Mound realtors, we know that the first impression a potential home buyer gets of a home is what he sees on the outside – the landscape. Is your home’s curb appeal lacking? If so, you could be missing out on potential buyers. We have a few tips to help you add curb appeal without busting your budget.

We’ve all seen homes that are lackluster, for lack of a better word, when out driving around. We’ve also seen those with that “WOW” appeal, landscaped beautifully and eye-catching. If you were in the market for a home, which would you be more apt to look at? The one with curb appeal, naturally.

Here’s how you can make the exterior of your home the envy of all who pass by:

Invest in a power washer and give the exterior a good cleaning. You can rent one, or buy one. Most stores that rent power washers will rent it out for an entire day for about $75. This is a good investment, considering you can wash down the siding, brick, concrete front porch, wood deck, sidewalks, walkway, driveway – practically everything. Power washers are amazing when it comes to removing mold, dust, dirt, mildew, even some grease stains.

Is the front door showing signs of wear? Give it a coat of paint – simple, and cheap. You may also want to consider replacing hardware that’s worn such as the door knocker or handle, your house number, even the mailbox. Clean your front door well to remove grit and grime before painting.

If you have garden or flower beds, clean them up. Remove dead plants, trim shrubs that are overgrown or uneven, weed eat around the edges, spread out a layer of fresh mulch. You may also want to consider a potted plant or two around the front entry or walkway for a splash of color.

Solar lights lining the front sidewalk or flower beds add curb appeal, and are simple to install considering they don’t use electricity. Just stick them in the ground along shrub beds or walkways, and you enjoy a little extra lighting at night along with enhanced beauty.

As you can see, you don’t have to hire a landscape professional or invest thousands of dollars into your lawn to add to the curb appeal of your home. All of the above are simple, cheap things you can do to dramatically spruce up the exterior of your home!

    The Nelson Team made our most recent move a pleasure by securing a full asking price offer on the home we were selling within a few days, helping us preview a number of potential new residences in a short time period, connecting us with a lender who moved at an incredible rate of speed, and effectively negotiating with the seller to deliver an excellent value on the home we purchased.

    Outstanding service from beginning to end. We're the type of picky customers that can drive a regular realtor up the roof, but team Nelson was patient, upbeat and professional through the whole ordeal. We got top dollar for our old home and paid a fair price for our new. Bill has an eye for spotting the issues that can cause problems in north Texas homes, saving you from making costly decisions. Highly recommended.

    Johnny did a great job as our real estate agent. He helped us find and visit many potential listings. He educated us on many facets of the home buying process particularly on the pros and cons of going with new builds, spec homes, or pre-owned including some things to look out such as a PID. He was...

    Team Nelson was outstanding. We worked with Casey Briner and Kelly Sokora and they walked us through the entire process. I am a person who likes to ask a lot of questions. They were always there for us, ready to answer. They made the entire process as stress-free as possible. They were always professional, and a pleasure to work with. We will be recommending them to all of our friends and family, and if we sell our home again in the future, we know who we will be using!
