During late Spring and Summer months great curb appeal is natural to many homes with the greenery, flower beds and the colorful leaves of fall on the front yard trees. But when autumn turns to winter and the sun sets earlier in the day, it becomes more difficult to create an inviting exterior look that entices a perspective Buyer.

The good news is you can still create striking winter curb appeal without expensive and/or complicated exterior changes.  It just requires a little creativity and here are a few suggestions that we think will do just that!

  • Seasonal sparkle:  Transform window boxes, fountains and bird baths with twigs, red berries or holiday greens.  All inexpensive, a quick fix and very pretty. 

  • Backyards, decks:  Shovel your backyard sitting areas and deck and leave your grill uncovered so buyers can evision themselves using the space. 

  • Front door: Make your front door the focal point with a large neutral wreath and possibly featured with a spotlight. Also, place medium to large colorful planters filled with evergreens beside the front door.

  • Photo display: show buyers what the outside of the home looks like during other seasons by displaying photos in frames or use a digital photo frame with a slide show of images.  If your home has a garden make a list of what is planted where.

  • Clear the front path: if the ground is covered in snow, shovel the driveway and sidewalks and keep the home's patio and decks as clear as possible so buyers can get a sense of their true size and use.

  • Lighting:  One week after daylight savings and we have noticed Arlington MA homes for sale may only have one or two rooms with the lights on and no exterior lights on.  It is very likely now that buyers will be viewing your home after sunset.  Keep light fixtures clean and use the maximum wattage allowed.  Put the lights on and take a drive by your own home to see how it looks from the street!

Hey, 
your tips are great and efficient. I think that if we add up some creativity in our house then it will surely help in selling the house at best prices. 
When we add some sparkling lights to the house then it would be very attractive. Thank you and looking forward for some more interesting blogs related with curb appeal.
