From recent freezing temperatures, warmer weather is just around the corner, and here are my best tips to create spring curb appeal if you are selling your home in Overland Park.
While shopping over the weekend for fresh, new spring curb appeal accessories for my new listings, I went into Home Goods to see what they were featuring this spring.
First of all, I love the feeling I get when I walk into Home Goods. They know how to get you in the mood to shop. It’s the same trick I use for all of my new listings. Home Goods and I both know we’ve got a short time to grab the buyer while they are present and either they’ll buy or they’ll move on. I call it the 10 second rule. It’s based on grabbing the buyer within 10 seconds of entering a house.
Home Goods is bright, full of happy music, and the colors throughout the store are outstanding. Furthermore, it’s such a pick-me-up and an incredible feeling. I love their bright cheery dishes, pillows, springtime furniture and outdoor cushions. It makes me want to buy everything in the store and give my own home a spring makeover.
I also love Home Goods for doormats and front door wreaths. They are bright, colorful, and full of life. The spring season is the best time for a change. It’s like starting over new again. In addition, you get a new lease on life and your home deserves this as much as anything. For that very reason, you will reap the benefits from your spring curb appeal makeover.
How to Stand Out
This week while working on a couple of houses, I thought about what would make us stand out from our competition. Both houses had substantial front porches so I decided with the new season and the energy in the air, I wanted to focus on the porch and really hone in on the spring curb appeal to draw people inside.
As a result, at one of the houses, I added a new spring doormat, a fresh wreath and added new outdoor pillows to the homeowner’s glider. Adding large, colorful planters to each side of the front door was a plus.
Here are My 5 Best Ways to Create Your Spring Curb Appeal
- Paint your front door
- Add an expensive pot or planters filled with colorful flowers next to the front door
- Find a pretty new wreath and hang it on the door
- Get some new, large house numbers
- Change out your mailbox (if it’s on the house) or paint it to match the color of your door
Do these 5 things to create your spring curb appeal and while the buyer’s agent is busy getting the key out of the lockbox, the buyers are quickly falling in love with your house.
