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.

 

Thoughtful Landscaping

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. 

 

Colorful Accessories

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. 

 

If you’re searching for a new home in Pittsburgh with built-in curb appeal, we’d love for you to come visit any of our communities. Please contact us to schedule a personal tour! 

5 Ways to Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space This Spring

The weather is warming up in Pittsburgh, and there’s something so special about this time of year. Maybe it’s the promise of the gloriously long summer ahead, or the excitement of evenings still tinged with a cool breeze. Whatever you love most about spring, there’s no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside in your own beautiful outdoor space. 

 

Let’s look at five ways to enjoy the outdoor spaces of your Weaver Home and make the most of this beautiful spring weather.

 

1) Turn your patio into an outdoor living room

Turn up the comfort factor on your deck or patio with a few plush couches or settees, a soft outdoor rug, pillows for lounging, and lots of cozy blankets for after-dinner drinks and conversation. This time of year, we promise your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor one!

 

2) Make s’mores with the kids or grandkids

If you’re enjoying one of our spacious single family homes at Hickory Glen or Camp Trees, your back yard is the perfect spot for a fire pit. You can find them in an array of sizes and materials to match your style. The little ones will LOVE making their own desserts, and you’ll love making sweet memories, around the fire in the comfort and safety of your own yard. 

 

3) Take in a movie

Believe it or not, your courtyard is the perfect place for movie night! Purchase a screen and projector (or get creative with a white sheet) and set up blankets, pillows, low chairs, and of course, a fully-loaded snack bar to enjoy your favorite films under the stars.

4) Let the light shine

Creative lighting can completely transform your single family home’s outdoor space. Use string lights, fairy curtain lights, or paper lanterns to instantly create ambiance and make our covered patios or decks even cozier and more welcoming. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave. 

 

5) Dine outdoors in elegance

Take advantage of spring’s milder weather by having special occasion meals at home. Create an unforgettable dining experience with formal dinnerware, candles, and a gorgeous tablescape. For ultimate luxury, have a catering company take care of all the cooking and cleaning up.

However you choose to use your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new Weaver home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors than right in your own backyard!
