Summer is all about bright, vibrant colors that captivate the eye and spark the imagination. It goes without saying that sellers trying to sell their homes in summer should attract buyers with color – lots and lots of it. Bright accents boost curb appeal and can add to the value of a home. If your sellers are looking for inspiration, tell them to use these curb appeal tips.
Sellers’ Curb Appeal Tips: How to Add More Color!
Brighten Up the Façade
One of the most inexpensive ways to update a home is by painting its exterior. Encourage sellers to pick color schemes that coordinate with their homes’ architectural styles. For example, those with intricate Victorian homes can use 4-5 complementary paint colors while those with colonial homes can use 2-3 colors. When selecting paint colors, sellers should also consider hues that can’t be altered like the roof color, landscape color, and the colors of the neighboring homes. Homeowners should also paint their front doors to add a dash of color. They should use high-quality acrylic latex paint which is easy to use, flexible, washable, and retains color for a long period of time.
Cover Windows with Cladding
Cladding can change the appearance of a property and shield a home from the elements. It is applied to exterior walls or windows but can also be installed in the interior, particularly in wet areas like the kitchen or bathroom. It gives homeowners beautiful wood windows inside and a low-maintenance cover outside. Home sellers can cover their exterior window frames with cladding to update their homes instantaneously. It is available in a host of colors and can be used to make windows stand out or blend in with the exterior.
Beautify with Stone
Stone is a design element that looks good anywhere. It can be used in both traditional and contemporary homes and imparts an air of distinction. Highly preferred for centuries, it remains a favorite choice among designers, builders, architects, and homeowners. Some time ago, enjoying the beauty of stone meant costly products and expensive installation. This is no longer the case. Stone veneer products have changed everything. They make it easy to add the look and feel of stone to a home’s exterior.
Stain Concrete Pavers
Staining concrete is one of the best ways to add color to floors. In addition, it gives cement surfaces an enduring color that does not fade, peel, crack, or become dull. By staining existing concrete, home sellers can transform drab patios, driveways, and sidewalks into stunning surfaces that are similar to wood, stone, and leather. Water-based stains come in a variety of colors while acid-based stains come in earth hues.
Enhance the Landscaping
A neglected exterior is off-putting to buyers. Overgrown shrubs, dead or dying plants, and neglected lawns are the last things potential buyers want to see. Sellers should focus on the landscaping and tend to the lawn, rake leaves, prune shrubs and trees, and create borders and accent areas with bright flowers that add color and hominess. They should also plant shade trees in front of their homes which help homes to look more established.
These curb appeal tips are ideal for home sellers looking to attract summer buyers. Tell your sellers to give them a try this summer.
