3 Ways to Boost Residential Curb Appeal

While decluttering your home, planting some new flowers, and painting your walls a new color will draw attention, it’s just not enough to WOW potential homebuyers. In this swift home selling market, curb appeal is everything. If you really want to entice people to check out your home, you need to start with the exterior. After all, the outside of your home is what potential buyers see first and what draws them inside.

What is residential curb appeal and why is it important?

Curb appeal is basically the overall allure of your home from the sidewalk (or the “curb”). Home’s with attention-grabbing curb appeal sell quicker, boost ROI, convey a warm welcome to guests, and can even improve moods. An engaging exterior is also a wonderful thing to come home to each day. Who doesn’t want to live in a house that’s beautiful on the inside and out?

So, what can you do to boost residential curb appeal? Here are 3 painless curb appeal tasks to make your home appealing from the outside in.


1. Window Cleaning

Presenting a home with dirty windows is like showing up to a job interview without brushing your teeth. It’s not recommended. Window cleaning tackles those hard to reach places and removes those streaks from the glass to make the eyes of your home sparkle like they should. Dirty or damaged windows can also be a major red flag to guests, immediately blinding them with the threat of having to replace them. So, not only will window cleaning make your home look better, it will also give off a better impression to potential buyers.

2. Gutter Cleaning

Gutter cleaning is an integral part of home maintenance, but also a task that is often neglected until it’s too late. Clogged gutters are more than just an eyesore. They can also cause severe home damage requiring costly repairs. Clogged gutters can breed mold and bugs, cause leaks in your home, destroy your property, and make your home IMPOSSIBLE to sell. Schedule gutter cleaning now, before you notice any issues. Once you notice a problem, it will likely be too late.

3. Pressure Washing

Never underestimate how much pressure washing your siding, decks, driveways, and fences can improve your home’s appearance. Seriously, a little TLC goes a very long way. Power washing provides an instant boost to curb appeal, making your home stand out to potential buyers, and giving it the attention it deserves. Clean homes are not only appealing on the market, they’re also safer and healthier. Dirt, grime, mold, and fungi can build up on your home’s siding, sidewalks, decks, etc. creating a harsh environment to live and breath in. Keep it healthy and beautiful with residential pressure washing.
