Enhance Winter Curb Appeal

Winter can be gloomy and filled with cloudy days and nights, but that doesn't mean your home needs to fall into a winter slump. Whether you're looking to sell your home or add to the allure of it, our REALTORS® can help you along the way with tips and advice for improving your winter curb appeal.

Prepping Your Home for Winter Curb Appeal

First, keep up with the maintenance of your yard. While you won't necessarily need to mow your lawn throughout the winter, you can still rake leaves and clear walkways and sidewalks of any snow, mud, or other debris. Picking up toys or other furniture not in use will help to make your yard look less sloppy, and this should include tools, lawnmowers, and even dying plants. Trimming trees of any dead limbs will prevent possible collapse if they become covered in ice, which will protect the exterior of your home as well. Other ways you can improve your curb appeal are:

  • Placing fake plants or flowers to give an added level of ambiance
  • Repainting or replacing your mailbox
  • Tactfully adding exterior lights, lanterns, or lamp posts
  • Add colorful ornaments or sculptures to counterbalance the gloom associated with winter

Make Your Home Stand Out 

Keeping your driveway clear will allow your guests to park there when they visit, and avoid parking in front of your house and taking up street space. If you're someone who likes to work in your garage with the door open, you may want to consider reorganizing, so it's less of an eyesore when others walk or drive by.
