Before and After – Curb Appeal
First impressions are so important when selling your home. In this before and after Curb Appeal, you will see how different your home can look with just a bit of hard work.
These past few weeks, I’ve been giving tips for prepping your home for the market in order to get the best price and minimize time on the market.
Now it’s time to start sharing some photos!
We’ll start with the outside, since this is the first thing buyers will see.
Before and After Curb Appeal
Overgrown bushes, trimming needing to be done, weeds and leaves galore!
Here is the after!
The shrubs are pruned and the leaves are gone! Come summertime, this yard will be green and the trees will be in full bloom.
The Front Porch – it should tell a buyer to come and rest, sit a while and enjoy. It’s the welcome entrance into your home. In my post about Curb Appeal, I showed the ugly porch.
Dead plant, closed off seating, not a happy entrance.
But add a pop of color and it’s a bright, welcoming porch.
A little sleuthing on the internet told me that studies have shown that yellow is the best color for front porch accents when selling. So I found these pretty blooms.
I hung a DIY wreath with the same accent color on my front door.
I had this old grapevine wreath in my craft closet.
Taking scraps of burlap, I rolled them into rosettes. Then I hot glued them to the wreath with fabric and button embellishments.
A quick and easy DIY that was only about 15 minutes to complete.
The Patio – don’t limit your curb appeal work to the front yard. Make sure all the outside areas are move-in ready.
Keeping the grounds clean and clear of the leftovers from autumn show a potential buyer that you took care of the property.
Waiting on Mother Nature takes patience between seasons, so all the more importance is placed on keeping everything looking nice and trimmed.
Invite the buyer to your home from the moment they lay eyes on it.
You’ve brought them to the home with Curb Appeal, now welcome them inside with a bright Living Room!

I remember when we lived in Vegas it was a constant chore cleaning dead leaves out of the yard. It would get so windy and I'd end up with big piles of them in every corner of the yard and patio.
