Thinking of selling or just improving your home’s curb appeal this summer?  Here are few tips to grab your buyer or neighbor’s eye!

Front Door

The front door is a reflection of your home’s interior.  Adding a fresh coat of paint to your door or a simple wreath is an easy way to improve the focal point of your home.  If you are looking to create a statement, consider a pop of color! 

New House Numbers

A quick fix to spruce up your curb appeal is to replace old, faded or hidden numbers.  Consider numbers that compliment your home’s style or exterior finishes.  This small fix can make a huge impact.

Be the Buyer

Look at your home’s exterior with a careful and critical eye.  Make sure nothing is missing or looks “off.”  Consider slowly driving by your home to see it from a potential buyer’s perspective. Also ask a friend for a “fresh eye,” they may catch something you’ve never noticed!


Symmetry is an easy way to catch your buyer’s eye.  Consider adding two light fixtures to your front door to provide a welcoming look.  For a quick and affordable fix, adding potted plants on either side of your front door can also be visually appealing.

Window Boxes

If you're looking to add charm to your abode this summer, add a window box full of bright flowers. Flowers are the perfect way to add color and compliment your home’s exterior.  If not window boxes, a potted plant or two can also create an inviting feel.  For the Charleston area, click below for some suggested warm weather flowers.

Perhaps the easiest and quickest fix for curb appeal is to declutter your front yard.  This can be as simple as moving a few bicycles or even closing a garage door.
