Tips for Creating Fall Curb Appeal

With inventory still at some of the lowest rates it’s been in recent history, now is a great time to sell your Birmingham home. Whether you’re ready to list now or want to wait, fall is one of the best times to boost your curb appeal. Here are some easy ways to elevate your seasonal game.

Spruce Up Your Home’s Exterior. Pressure wash your home’s exterior, clean windows and screens, clear out your gutters, and make any necessary repairs to shutters, siding and paint to keep your home looking its best.

Showcase Your Front Door. A charming entryway is key to great curb appeal. Consider repainting your front door or updating your house numbers for a fresh look. Add visual interest by framing your front door with a couple of urns and a simple-yet-elegant wreath of fall foliage.

Update Your Landscaping. Clear your landscaping of any dead plants and leaves and consider adding fresh mulch or pine straw. If you have a green thumb, get creative with fall flowers to add a splash of color to your front yard.

Add Outdoor Lighting. With the days getting shorter and shorter, outdoor lighting creates a cozy glow about your home that people can’t help but admire. Simple solar lighting along the sidewalk leading up to your porch does the trick, or opt for elegant gas lanterns or extra lighting on your porch for the colder months.

Keep Seasonal Decorations Simple. Subtle fall decor and plantings add charm and appeal to your home’s exterior, but going too overboard will distract from your home’s best features. Keep the spooky decor to a minimum, especially if your home is already on the market.

If you’re thinking of selling this fall, speaking with a knowledgeable real estate agent is a great first step.
