How to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal

The Florida real estate market is incredibly hot right now. Homes in Tampa are selling in an average of just seven days, and the median sale price has increased from $273K last year to $320K in May 2021! The number of available homes on the market has decreased substantially, down 61% over last year.

Your home’s curb appeal—aka, how the outside of your home looks from the street—can have a significant impact on your home’s sale price. If you’re considering selling your home this year, check out these tips for easy ways to boost your home’s curb appeal.


Freshen Up Your Home’s Exterior

You might not be able to see it from the street, but crumbling stucco, chipped paint, and cracked siding can turn a prospective buyer’s first impression from “wow” into “whoa” as they get closer to your home. Take the time to walk around your home and identify any spots that could stand to be touched up. Even if you’re not planning on moving any time soon, cracks in your home’s exterior give bugs and pests a way into your home and should be resolved ASAP.

Power washing your home’s exterior (including your driveway, deck, and home) is an easy way to make an impact, but be mindful—not all home exteriors are designed to withstand a pressure washer.


Make Your Home’s Entryway More Attractive

You don’t need to add a lot of elaborate decorations to your porch (although it doesn’t hurt!) but a few simple updates can go a long way. Consider adding a fresh coat of paint to your door, replace any worn-out hardware, and clean out any spiderwebs from the porch light. It’s amazing how the smallest things can have a big impact on your home’s appearance, such as making sure your home’s numbers are easily visible from the street. Don’t be afraid to go bold—a statement color will draw the eye toward your home, attracting potential buyers!


Replace Your Roof, Soffit, and Fascia if Needed

While this is often a larger undertaking than painting your front door, making the necessary replacements will likely pay off in the long run. Many homeowners find they recover their investment during the sale of their home since a brand new roof adds so much more value! The team at No 1 Home Roofing is here to help with all your roofing repair and replacement needs.


Tidy Up Your Landscaping

Effective landscaping should add to your home’s curb appeal, not detract from it! Trim any overgrown trees/shrubs, and deal with any weeds. Make sure your lawn is freshly mowed before a showing or open house, and consider putting some planters with seasonal flowers by your doorway for an added touch.
