Boost the Curb Appeal!

Boise-035Selling starts at the curb. People often forget this very important factor in presenting their home for sale – frequently focusing more on staging the inside of the home. Staging inside IS important, cleaning the carpets and having everything nice and tidy is key to impressing the potential buyer, but all of that is for not if you don’t even get them in the door! The curb appeal of your home is it’s first most important impression when attracting buyers who may remain window shoppers otherwise.

Here are a couple quick things to pump that appeal!

First, walk to the curb and look at your home objectively. Just stand there for a moment, take it in as though you’ve never seen it before, and find the things that your eye is drawn to first.

Keep the Yard Up.
Trim and neat, free of trash, weeds, or leaves. Maybe even go the extra mile and add some potted plants for pops of color. Don’t be afraid to go big, but beware of over cluttering the entrance to your home.

New Paint.
Paint up that old front door – or even replace it. A good sturdy exterior door is considered to be one of the best investments for the front of your home. Keep the same thing in mind for the garage door as well – depending on the layout of your home it could be a larger part of the front elevation of your house.

New Numbers.
People might think that the numbers on the house aren’t so important, but tired, old, or hard to see address numbers can also detract from your home’s appeal. Pick something unique, a nice custom font, use it to show off a little of your style.

Add Some Light.
Small solar powered lights for the walkway or drive are fairly inexpensive and help light up the front of the home for passer-by’s. Don’t be afraid to leave the exterior lights on your home on a little longer into the evening than normal while you are showing your home; let it be the shining star you want it to be!

Star Idaho, Some History
The first location of the village of Star was one mile to the east of present Star, about halfway between the present town of Star and Star-Emmett junction, and is one of the earliest communities in the Boise Valley. The Pioneer ditch (started in 1863 by M.B. Palmer) and its supply of water allowed the country between Star and Middleton to be settled early. Today Star Idaho boasts a quickly blossoming community of wonderful amenities and a population of right around 6,000! A great town just outside the busy Boise streets; perfect to call home!
