The fall and winter season are a favorite among many individuals but when placing your home on the market, these seasons can be difficult to entice and impress buyers. But it certainly is possible. Here are a few simple ways to add curb appeal during these colder months.

Keep Trim Looking Great

When enhancing the curb appeal of your home, you want to focus on the small details. The trim around your home is an excellent place to start. If the trim is starting to look worn down and weather-beaten, add a fresh coat of paint. Also consider features such as shutters, a front porch, and even your door.

Spruce Up the Entryway

You want to impress buyers the minute they walk onto your property. One way to do this is by creating a beautiful front entryway. Keep this area clean and free from too much dirt, bugs, cobwebs, etc. Also, include a new mat and some season-specific decorations that provide a warm and welcoming feeling to the home.

Keep Flowerbeds Tidy

In Jacksonville, you will rarely see a sheet of snow cover your front yard and flowerbeds. This means you still need to keep these areas in tip-top condition. While you don’t need to plant new flowers every weekend, simply keeping the flowerbeds free from debris and weeds will make a big difference. Keep your grass short and any trees and shrubbery well trimmed. If you don’t have time to make your yard look nice and well manicured, hire someone who can take care of the dirty work for you.

Update Your Light Fixtures

Old and outdated light fixtures are going to make buyers question the upkeep and upgrades of other areas of the home before they even step foot inside. Spend time updating the outside light fixtures and add a modern, trendy touch. If possible, install light fixtures with motion sensors or other safety features. Also, consider energy-efficient products as well. These are large selling points for home buyers and will do more than just improve the curb appeal of the home.
