Improving the street appeal of your home doesn’t have to cost an arm & a leg. There are a few key things you can do to really jazz up the external appearance of your property.

Calibre Real Estate’s in house styling expert, Brayley Taylor, discusses the importance of great street appeal. “You’re only given one chance to make a good first impression. Street appeal is your first chance to make a good first impression so it’s important you get it right. It can certainly pay off to invest in simple things like landscaping, painting or upgrading the fence.”

Brayley reveals her four insider tips to maximise your street appeal and minimise your spend.

4 Ways To Improve The Street Appeal Of Your Home

These 4 easy tips will add significant street appeal for your enjoyment and hopefully more money in your pocket when it does come time to sell.

1.Replace welcoming elements: The letterbox, house numbers, door mat and door hardware can have a huge impression on buyers. These small elements can send a welcoming impression and are relatively inexpensive to replace.

2.Symmetry: Add pots of colour to either side of the front door for a visually dramatic entryway. Recommended are impatiens and succulents are also very fashionable.

3.Renew the garden: Get your garden into shape by pruning growth, pulling weeds, planting flowers, laying turf and/or adding mulch to restore colour that was taken away by sunlight and harsh weather.

4.Evening street appeal: During the sales process, consider always leaving a few interior lights on plus any exterior lights at the front of your home. Buyers may drop past to view at night.
