because the temperature is freezing doesn’t mean you can’t warm buyers’
hearts with your home’s exterior during the winter. Here are a few tips
to help make your property inviting.
1. Door Number One
miss the opportunity to make a great first impression. New doors are
worth the investment. Or, give your door a fresh coat of paint and
upgrade your handles and knocker with some shiny bling. When
appropriate, brightly colored doors can create a charming focal point,
especially during winter when the world can seem white and grey.
2. Plant Some Green
Evergreen shrubs look terrific in pots on the porch and can add allure to your home’s entry.
3. Keep it Safe
sure that all walkways are clear of snow and ice. In addition to
helping to prevent dangerous slips, the clean lines of a shoveled
driveway look great and imply your property is well cared for.
4. Stash Santa
January 1, be sure to take down distracting holiday decorations. No
blinking lights, reindeer on the roof, and no inflatable snow snow
globes. You can, however, dress up your front door with a
non-denominational winter wreath.
5. To Sit, Porch-ance to Dream
there’s room on your porch, consider adding a rocking chair or bistro
set. While prospective buyers probably won’t consider whiling away the
evening out there in winter, the furniture can remind them how nice it
is to sit there in warmer weather.
