There are many neighbourhoods across Grey-Bruce, ranging from rural hamlets to small-town villages. These quaint neighbourhoods can generate instant appeal for many prospective home-buyers. Places like Flesherton, Southampton, Thornbury, and Walkerton are great examples of this combination of a small-town village feel with residential homes that encourage community and cohesiveness.
Adding additional curb appeal to your property is an important point to consider if you plan on selling. Especially when so many houses across Grey-Bruce tend to fit within that community that gives a home an instant appeal already. If you plan to attract more buyers, there are several tactics that you as a homeowner can use. Most of these are simple tricks that will help draw people in to explore the full offerings of your home.
Start by keeping your home filled with charm
Since many properties for sale in Grey Bruce include covered front porches or patios, this is one of the first places to beautify to raise a buyer’s interest. For spring and summer properties. The addition of hanging baskets and window boxes can add colour and vivaciousness to your property.
Fall and winter properties should ensure that the porch stays tidy and that flowering plants have been cut back for the cold weather. But decorative fall and holiday garlands and wreaths can also ensure that inviting colours are on hand throughout the year. Your added attention to detail will inform buyers that your home is well cared for and well maintained. Which is another large aspect of the perfect curb appeal home that attracts buyers.
Listings for sale across Grey Bruce that face onto the residential main roads should also have a well-presented garden, no matter the time of year. In spring and summer, this can be as simple as keeping the grass mowed. During the cooler showings, you will want to ensure that leaves and debris have been cleared. This will also include keeping the front pathway clean and well-tended in any weather. If there are cracks in the paving stones or missing stones, then these should be fixed or replaced. You always want to ensure that Buyers feel as though they are being invited into your home.
Finally, a good porch and walkway lighting can also be essential. This not only allows buyers to see the home as they do drive-bys. But it also grants them peace of mind as to the safety of the community it resides within.
