Selling a Home? Improve the Curb Appeal!

Moving out can be a hassle, especially when you’re faced with the stress of packing everything up and then relocating it. Unless you’re experienced with this kind of task or have the patience and skills to do it, you’d have to rely on professionals to move your belongings.

If you’re lucky to be done with that in no time there comes the second hassle: selling the property. Now, with the housing market bottoming out and the fact there are many properties for sale might discourage you and lead you to think you’re never going to sell, truth is you’d be doing yourself a favour if you consider improving the home’s curb appeal.

The reason behind this is increasing the home’s value and though it sounds like a costly move there are ways to go about it by opting for cost-efficient options such as replacing your old letterbox with one of the stylish and modern fence letterboxes, for example.


We still receive mail so why not make the most of it? This is especially true now that there are so many durable and aesthetic letterboxes to choose from, made of strong and eco-friendly materials like accoya wood, even having the chance to customise them by having them engraved or adding a fashionable accessory like a planter giving you the space to decorate with plants.

Another budget-friendly move that would help fence letterboxes stand out is to clean your yard and home in general, removing all the dirt piled up as well as eliminating mould-related problems. You’d be surprised how much of a difference a simple wash up would do, particularly with features like floor tiles, roof tiles, windows and doors. In case you’re finding it difficult to make the floor spotless pressure washing would do.

Considering it’s the exterior that has its role in grabbing a buyer’s attention, make it more inviting by counting on the help of plants; the greenery is sure to add liveliness! Depending on the space you have, you could do this by planting grass, shrubs, trees that are ideal for natural shade and privacy too, and flowers for some splash of colour.

Don’t leave out lighting! It might not seem that much of a deal but given its essence with safety and security it’s bound to make your home’s exterior safer to walk at night without the fear of falling, deter burglars and add some much-needed drama. It’s the little things that matter and make the difference!
