How to Create Impressive Curb Appeal For Your Naperville Luxury Home
Most buyers form their first impression of a Naperville luxury home for sale based on the landscaping – whether they are checking out homes online or driving by the neighborhood.
If the exterior of your Naperville luxury home looks dull and unappealing, it would be useless for you to spend thousands on designer furniture, remodel your bathrooms and update your kitchens if you don’t get the right buyers to walk through the door.
Here are some tips to create curb appeal and make a great impression for your Naperville luxury home this fall and winter season:
Spruce Up the Lawn.
During the fall season, your lawn will go dormant and the grass no longer needs to be cut, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it any attention. Take advantage of the lovely colors of fall foliage in your lawn. Fall is a great time to keep your yard looking clean by managing brown spots in the grass, raking leaves, and removing clutter and debris.
When the weather gets colder and it begins to snow, make sure to keep your entryways and sidewalks free from snow for safety.
Prune shrubs and trees.
Before the cold winter sets in, make sure to prune and cut back your shrubs and trees. Aside from making them look tidy and neat, you won’t have as many dead branches and debris in your yard and walkway.
Highlight Your Front Door.
Your front door is the focal point of your Naperville luxury home’s curb appeal. Don’t hesitate to make your front door pop out with a bright or vivid color that will definitely make your home stand out from the rest of the homes in the neighborhood. To prepare for the Holiday season, you can hang a decorative wreath or a door hanger that matches the colors of your surrounding landscape.
As winter approaches, the days get shorter and it gets dark earlier. Make sure the pathway to your home is well-lit so it can be easily seen by potential buyers and passers-by even when it’s dark. Make sure your front door and porch are also well lit with hanging lights or lanterns. You could even add some lighted jack-o’-lanterns to the walkway to keep up with the Halloween spirit.
Add Color to the Exterior.
If you have summer plants on your lawn, they may fade as the weather gets colder. Replace them with vibrant and colorful flowers that thrive in the fall and winter like bright fall mums.
Consider adding a fresh coat of paint to the exterior or your Naperville luxury home. A new and fresh color goes a long way in making your home look new. New paint also provides a seal of protection from the moisture and elements during the colder weather.
Keep It Simple.
Resist the urge to splurge on the most expensive and largest holiday decorations for your home. Keep it simple yet tasteful. Limit your holiday decor to just a festive wreath on the door. Covering your lawn with too much holiday decor will detract from your home and make it lose its curb appeal. Check out popular home magazines and how holiday decor is used on the homes.
Clean Your Gutters and Downspouts.
Check your gutters regularly for fallen leaves, debris, pine needles, and other items that can obstruct the flow of rainwater or melting ice away from your home. Overflowing debris in the gutters could cause damage and water leaks as well as give an impression to potential buyers that your home is not well-maintained.
These 7 tips will not only help you create impressive curb appeal that will attract buyers to your Naperville luxury home for sale, but will also ensure that you and the future homeowners will be safe during the colder months.
