In the spring when flowers are blooming, the grass is growing, and the sun is shining it is easy to make almost any home look great from the outside. Nevertheless, when the hot summer weather comes causing grass to wilt and creating a hazy and tired look it can be a little harder to for home sellers to maintain great curb appeal. Looking to Sell Edmonton Real Estate Here are a few ways that sellers can boost the curb appeal of their homes during those hot summer months so that potential buyers want to see more of the property:
Commit to Grass or Get Rid Of It All
If the grass in the yard is patchy and will not grow well because of the soil or the heat or other factors homeowners need to decide to give grass everything they have got or got rid of it all. That means either committing to putting down new lush sod and tending to it carefully by watering it often and using fertilizer or pulling up all the grass and putting in something else like decorative stones. In a very hot climate, it is fine to get rid of the grass and it may even be a selling point because there’s no lawn care work that needs to be done. However, the patchy grass looks worse than no grass at all because it looks haphazard and runs down. Therefore, homeowners should make a choice and follow through to make the yard look as good as possible.
Power Wash The House
Sellers may not have the time to get the home totally painted. Or they may not want to invest the money in a new paint job. However, a quick professional power wash of the home will get rid of all the dirt and pollen that has collected on the home and make it look like it has had a brand new paint job recently. Getting a professional pressure wash is a great affordable way to boost the curb appeal of any home.
Stage The Outdoor Areas
In the summertime home, buyers will be thinking about outdoor living so make sure that the house reflects that. The driveway and front lawn areas should be clean, look fresh, and invite. If the house has a deck it should have nice outdoor furniture on it and possibly a grill too. If the home has a fire pit it should also have comfortable seating nearby so it looks ready for people to gather around the fire and roast marshmallows on a summer night.
Homes that only have a cement pad or small patio should still be staged to look as inviting as possible. Fairy lights are always a nice touch and an indoor-outdoor rug and comfortable seating can transform a bland space into an inviting summer retreat.
