Talking Charlottesville real estate; spring cleaning isn't just for the inside.
Traditionally spring is the time of the year when people give their homes a good cleaning. This is particualrly the case with homes that are being prepared for the Charlottesville spring real estate market. However it is important not to forget the outside. Its called curb appeal and without it the buyers won't make it through the front door to look at that amazing interrior.
A first step may be a thorough power washing of the outside of the house, patios and decks. You may need to powerwash the sidewalks and driveway too. As well as cleaning the windows inside and out. A freshly painted front door can add be an inexpensive way to dress up your home. A new mailbox can also be a good addition.
The yard is an important part of the curb appeal. Now is the time to seed any bare spots or even over seed the entire lawn. Make sure to prune any overgrown shrubs. Our weather has warmed up enough now that you can add some pots with pansies for color.
There is a lot you can do to spruce up your Charlottesville home for the spring real estate market without breaking the bank.
