Curb appeal, or the exterior that home buyers see when perusing a home for sale, can make or break a purchase. Here's how to maintain your home's curb appeal and value before putting it on the market.
Pressure Wash Everything
Nothing captures the appeal of a newly built home like a clean exterior. Depending on the siding of your home, you can pressure wash the exterior of the home itself to bring it back to life. And, instead of repaving your driveway, simply pressure wash it to take years of buildup off of its appearance.
Use a Welcome Mat
A welcome mat can entice prospective buyers to check out the interior of a home. It's not simply about making them feel comfortable checking out the interior of the home; it also gives the home a lived-in and cozy feel that can feel less intimidating and more inviting.
Maximize on Drought-Tolerant Plants
Thriving plants can add a lived-in touch of curb appeal to a home, but they can also be costly to upkeep and constantly replace. If you don't have a green thumb, instead of investing too much time and money into your agricultural efforts, invest in well-mulched and drought-tolerant plants that can go longer periods of time without being watered. This helps keep plants alive longer, making your house look better from the outside.
Repaint the Front Door
You don't have to repaint the entire exterior of your home to increase curb appeal; often, the front door will be enough. Repainting the door and the trim alone can make the entire exterior appear much more clean, modern, and fresh.

The entire process went very smoothly. I saw the home on October 31st and closed on December 5th. Maria was very helpful, and I received all the details from the title company to prepare for closing. Ron and Jem were also great people to work with. I had a few small issues and they took care of them quickly. I have owned three homes in the past, two of which were new construction. This, my fourth home, is by far, the best. It is a well-built home with quality workmanship. I love the property and the home. It was built with care, concern and attention to detail.
