Terry’s Tips: Creating Winter Curb Appeal

January 4, 2012

Landscaping is one of the most important parts of potential buyers’ curb appeal experience. But if you live in colder climates, how can you help buyers visualize your home as their own when your front yard is dead and bare?

Just because the greenery is gone doesn’t mean everything is dead, and much of what you have planted will return in the spring. What’s important to remember is to trim back branches, leaves and greenery that just isn’t going to grow anymore. Texture is what is most important in the winter, since color from bright bulbs won’t emerge again until the spring either.

Clean gutters, well lit paths, and painted shutters and siding will stand out the most to potential buyers no matter the temperatures. Keeping things neat and tidy are most important, so make sure to sweep the sidewalks and driveway regularly.

What other ways do you keep curb appeal in the winter?
