Creating Kerb Appeal for your Property Will sell your house

Are you looking to sell your property or looking to Let,? make it easier to get prospective buyers  by Giving it Kerb appeal! Your premises will be  eye-catching, and think of how much more welcoming for your prospective buyers

A very large percentage of home buyers decide whether or not to look inside a house or take it seriously based on its Kerb appeal—the view they see when they drive by or arrive for a showing. You can help make sure they want to come inside your house by spending some time working on the exterior appearance.

Here are some relatively inexpensive and Simple Kerb appeal suggestions. these will make an instant impact to your property

Paint the front door. A splash of colour can do wonders for adding curb appeal to your home. A realistic DIY project or you can hire a professional to handle the task.

Add new front door fixture. Distinctive lighting to frame a front door is a great way to add Kerb appeal. Make sure your sconce’s are the right ratio to the door – too large or too small can detract from the overall appearance of your home. A helpful rule to follow is for the fixture to be not more than 1/3 the height of the door if there is only one fixture and 1/4 the height of the door if there are two fixtures

A Splash of Colour on Notting Hill - Use colour but always keep it Uniform with the rest of the street.

If your garage doors are visible from the street, you may want to consider adding similar hardware to that of your front door.

Update the doormat. A tattered and worn doormat does not make for a great welcome. There are so many distinctive and fun doormats. Buy a few and swap them seasonally.

You can get customised doormats also which can be fun !

Add some plantings to line your walkway or the front of your house. Velvet Cloak Smoke Tree (Cotinus coggygria ’Velvet Cloak’) is a favourite of mine very low maintenance. Come summer, add some colourful bedding plants, and you have guaranteed curb appeal.

Keep up with routine maintenance: trim hedges and keep mulch turned, gardens weeded, and grass watered and mowed.
