Kerb appeal – top tips

Kerb appeal – top tips

21st Jan, 2020

So, here are some simple, cost-effective ways to make potential renters or buyers stop in their tracks and want to see more…

Add a little green…

Don’t underestimate the power of plants and flowers – and this doesn’t just apply to people with gardens. Nowadays, there are plenty of space-saving options – from patio pots to window boxes – that don’t break the bank either. Visit your local garden centre or supermarket to pick up some cheap and easy to maintain plants, flowers, or seeds – to give your house the ‘wow factor’.

If you do have a garden, remove weeds and anything sprouting up on drives or between flagstones. Make sure hedges are as tidy as possible, and not obstructing walkways.

Don’t underestimate cleanliness…

By ensuring that paintwork is fresh, and windows and doors are clean, this shows that you take care of your property, and gives the right impression to people looking to rent or buy.

Your front door and window frames are the first thing most potential buyers will notice. If you think yours are looking tired, give them the TLC they deserve – it’s an easy way to make your space feel clean and well looked after.

Be house proud…

Little things can make all the difference, for example making sure your wheelie bins are tidy and not overflowing – this can subconsciously make a big difference to the ‘feel’ of your street. If you live on a busier road, make sure there’s no litter on the pavement and that there are no obvious eye sores for people visiting the area.

A well-maintained and presented exterior can put your potential viewers in a positive frame of mind before they even enter your property. So, never underestimate how much value kerb appeal can provide.
