Why you should care

Putting your home up for sale is a big decision but getting it sold, and at a price that you want is a journey on its own. There are thousands of homes for sale so you have to go the extra mile to increase your curb appeal to invite potential homeowners.

If you’re looking to sell your home or increase your resale value, curb appeal is key. Your home exterior needs to be in optimal condition for potential homebuyers to consider your space.

The exterior of the home plays an important role in homebuyers’ decision-making. These exterior home improvements can help you increase the appeal of your home in the saturated property market.

1 Change Your Front Door

Your front door depicts a lot about the home and its occupants. A solid and good looking front door exudes a sense of security and style! Since it is the first thing potential buyers see before entering a home, it plays a major factor in what they expect to see in the interior.

2 New Coat of Paint

New homeowners tend to look at works that need to be done before they move in and often shy away from spaces that look old and worn out. A new coat of paint will give your home’s exterior a fresh look. Warm hues like taupe make the home more inviting and appealing.

3 Refresh Your Landscaping

Prospective home buyers are more likely to use the internet to search for new homes and spaces so images of your home are more likely to stand out when you have an alluring garden or front yard. You want to showcase your house in the best light possible so home buyers want to take a closer look. Include plants and outdoor furniture to achieve a better-looking exterior.

4 Prioritise Security

Install an effective security system along with sturdy gates and fences. Besides keeping you safe, it will make your property more appealing. This is especially the case for homes that aren’t in gate communities.

5 Pressure Wash

Pressure washing your home is the best thing you can do for your space, even if you’re not looking to sell your house. You don’t realise how dirty the exterior of your home is until you pressure wash the surfaces and see the drastic difference. You can purchase your own pressure washer for a little over RM200 or hire professionals to help you.
