6 Things to Create Instant Curb Appeal

Many homeowners never walk in their front door or take a look at their curb appeal from a buyers perspective. Here are a few ways to enhance your curb appeal.

FRONT DOOR

Your home’s front entry is the focal point of its curb appeal. Consider painting the front door in “today’s colors” to give it a fresh welcoming look.

HARDWARE

If needed replace house numbers, mailbox, outdoor lighting and lockset. Combining these elements will add appeal when they function collectively.

GARDEN BEDS

Edge garden beds along with adding a fresh layer of mulch. Trim trees and shrubs as needed.

CONTAINER GARDENS

Create an instant garden and welcoming look with large pots of seasonal flowers.

DRIVEWAY

Power wash concrete driveways. Repair and sealcoat asphalt driveways.

WINDOWS

Clean windows inside and out.

7 Tips to Freshen up your Kitchen this Spring

Start your spring cleaning by taking these points into consideration says Suburban Real Estate Expert Terri Christian.

Windows

A squeegee and a microfiber cloth are great for cleaning windows. Make sure you clean windows on an overcast day to avoid sun streaking.

Garbage Disposal

While there are many products you can purchase to clean a disposal, try placing ice cubes along with lemon in your disposal, then run. This will eliminate all the odors.

Microwave

Place a microwave safe bowl filled with a cup of water, a few tablespoons of vinegar and sliced lemons. Microwave the solution until boiling, let cool and wipe clean.

Refrigerator 

Remove shelving and drawers. Wipe down with warm soap solution.

Pantry

Remove and reorganize items. This is a great time to check for expired products.
