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!

    We just purchased our first home with the help of Team Nelson and I can't say enough good things about them! When we wanted to take a few months to look and understand the market, they were happy to go at our slower pace, and when we needed to move quickly to secure the contract they were right on...
