A first impression is everything. When a prospective buyer sees the first picture of your home or drives into your driveway, there’s an immediate impression and “feeling” that they have. Is it excitement? Warmth? Being impressed? Or is it doubtful? Skeptical? Are they already creating a list of things that are wrong? Your curb appeal and outside of your home is essential.
When we say curb-appeal, people can get overwhelmed or say “I’m not a gardener.” Well, I’m not either. But, there are small, affordable things you can do to make a large impact. Even if you’re not thinking about selling, still do it. That way if the time ever comes to sell, then you’re ready!
This is our 5 part Tip Tuesday series in which we’ll be sharing small improvements to have a large impact.
Today’s tip is spruce up small spaces with tiny gardens.
We have a space in between our patio walkway and the grass. We had a large slope that was getting difficult to mow and people were tripping. So, we built a wall. Then we were left with the challenge of a bare space in between the wall and walkway. As I said, I’m not a gardener so I didn’t want flowers. Instead, I planted herbs. All it takes is watering, fills in the space nicely and will fill in more as it grows and we get the benefits of herbs! I’m already tasting the mint in my mojitos! Simple, affordable…impact!
Take the time now to make small improvements that have a big impact. And as always, for any questions, turn to the team you can trust with the service you deserve at Harrison Real Estate.
