How To Create Curb Appeal in Your New Home
When we drive through a new neighborhood, we expect each home to have a distinctive look that tells us a little something about the family who lives there. It’s called “curb appeal,” and to us here at Weaver Homes, it adds a little something extra to our charming new home communities in Greater Pittsburgh.
You know great curb appeal when you see it. The house looks balanced, interesting, and well-kept. The exterior and landscaping are neat and clean, reflecting positively on the owners, indicating that they take pride in their property. And there are some personal touches that add personality and style.
Plus, homes with great curb appeal sell for about 7% more than similar houses with drab exteriors, if you ever need to move. Overall, high curb appeal makes a community a beautiful place to live, and who doesn’t want that?
There are a few secrets to great curb appeal, though. Here are just a few ways you can add a personal touch and curb appeal to your new Weaver Home.
Your landscape is an extension of your unique personality and style, which is why we offer a variety of bedlines, shrub packs, plant sizes and types to add a special touch to your new home. Your front yard is beautiful from the start, and over time it will mature to add even more curb appeal to your home.
Bringing beauty to your doorstep is a cinch. A container garden is a quick and affordable way to brighten things up. Not a fan of flowers? Try foliage plants. Just plant something low-maintenance so that they thrive even if you forget to water them. (Dead plants definitely hurt curb appeal!) Choose pots and plants that complement the colors and style of your home.
A Comfy Seating Area
If you have the space, a classic rocking chair, a bench or a cafe set can be a welcoming addition to your front entry. Create a quiet spot for people watching or a place that beckons visitors to pull up a chair and stay awhile. Even a small chair or a little table on your porch can serve as a resting station between inside and out.
