There are many curb appeal “don'ts” when selling a home. The entire premise behind improving the curb appeal of your home is to draw potential buyers to your home, to have it set attractively in its surroundings and to have your home present itself with its best “foot” forward. To do so it is as important to pay attention to the “don’ts” as it is the “dos”.

One of the most important things to remember is, don’t make your home stick out from its environment. If all the homes on your street are simple in their elegance don’t make your home look like an ornate palace.

Don’t choose a color of paint for your home or trim that will make it stand out like a sore thumb. If you are in a neighborhood of Victorian homes, painted with a variety of colors, shades, and hues, that is one thing, but in a neighborhood of white and beige do not paint your house a bright plum color. Understated is always better.

Don’t ignore the clutter. Just like preparing the inside of your home by de-cluttering and organizing, the exterior of your home must be de-cluttered. Organize your garden tools, remove non-essential items and neaten up your outdoor living spaces.

These are but a few of the “don’ts” for enhancing your home’s curb appeal. A first impression is instrumental in luring buyers in your front door!
