If you are in the process of searching for a new home, and you are not a first time home buyer, then the odds are that you are also in the process of selling an existing property (and if you are a first-time buyer, make sure to read our guide to deciding whether to rent or buy). You have probably noticed that the aesthetic appeal of the outside of your home is directly related to how many people you have come to view it. It is with this in mind that the AREA Title Agency in Toledo would love to share a few curb appeal boosting tips for you, to get those much desired potential buyers looking inside of your home as well.

Your front door may be the first place a potential buyer goes. For this reason, there are a few things to consider around this area of your home.

Decorate the door to make it more welcoming. You can do this by adding a wreath or other hanging decoration, wind chimes, or if you want to go bolder consider painting the door a bright color-one that complements your house, of course.

Install planters to allow your buyers to see the color and potential of the home.

Lighting is essential. Remember that your potential buyers may come to view the home in the evening if so you want them to be able to see the front of the home well. Not only is it visually pleasing, it is also a great way to ensure safety.

The yard itself may need some assistance, and lucky for you, there are many ways you can make this happen.

Of course, being sure the grass is cut and manicured is an excellent place to start. Consider lining the drive or walkway with lights to showcase your freshly cut grass.

Install unique outdoor art in the front yard. You can get very creative here, but you want to be sure what you decide upon is something that would appeal to a lot of styles.

While you may decide that not all of these repairs are necessary or feasible for your home, start with one or two that you think your home will benefit the most from, and work from there. Once you’ve lined up a buyer, and are ready to purchase your new home, don’t forget your ever important title search and title insurance needs.
