Five Easy Steps to Creating Curb Appeal in Winter

Create curb appeal this winter in five simple steps! While there may be snow on the ground or frigid temperatures, setting the scene can be just what it takes to sell your home before spring. Take a weekend and tweak a few things to heat up the interest in your property!

  1. Tidy up the yard. Even though the lawn may not be at its best in the colder months, make sure it is trimmed and free of weeds and any fallen debris. Make sure trees and hedges are cut back as neatly as possible.
  3. Shovel the snow. Although rare, snow in Hampton Roads does occur. If there have been any recent heavy snowfalls, ensure driveways, sidewalks and steps are clear for potential homebuyers.
  5. Add flowers. While there are few flowers that bloom in the winter, that makes it all the more important to showcase a touch of spring. Doing so will make your home stand out from the rest. Pansies are cold weather posies that can withstand frosty days.
  7. Consider the front door. A bold color on the front door makes a statement, even in chilly weather. Consider a hue that appeals to many buyers such as black, red or navy.
  9. Dress up the entrance. A new storm door, hardware, welcome mat and porch light can go a long way towards greeting homebuyers. Make sure everything in this area looks fresh and updated to give buyers something to remember.

It doesn't take much time or money to make a house look good to buyers from the street. A little elbow grease can go a long way when it comes to creating cub appeal in the winter and getting your home sold!
