Add curb appeal to your Keller home

Whether you're just listing your Keller home for sale or you've already started entertaining potential buyers, focusing on your "curb appeal" can drastically increase your chances of a quick and successful sale. Here we'll discuss how to present your front and back yard in order to make them more inviting and welcoming to prospective homebuyers.

It all starts with a great lawn
Whether you're standing on the street looking at the front of your home or you're on the patio looking out over your back yard, your lawn is an area that potential buyers are sure to focus on. You'll want to ensure that your lawn is very well-kept, with no weeds, dandelions or patches of clover breaking up the continuity of the grass. While enjoyable for some, maintaining the lawn is a task others find too time consuming. There is always the option of hiring a lawn service to maintain your lawn. The Grove Team can refer you to services in your area.

Use gardens to add a splash of color
Once the lawn looks appealing, it's time to move on to your gardens and other landscape features. Gardens are the best way to add a vibrant splash of color to your yard and they can be used to accessorize the front or back of your home to break up the monotony. Choose flowers or plants that are in season for your area to ensure that they are healthy while potential buyers are driving past and viewing the home. Also, keep in mind that most of the time, less is more; don't over-do your gardening or it can become a bit overbearing. As previously mentioned, there are services that can help you with landscaping.

Make your back yard feel as inviting as possible
Your back yard will be a significant feature for many prospective homebuyers in Keller – especially those with children. You'll want to ensure that your back yard feels as inviting as possible. If you have a deck or patio, ensure that you have furniture and that your grill is tastefully arranged so the buyer can picture themselves hosting friends and family.  The Grove Team can assist you with home staging and refer you to other services that can improve your home's appeal.
