Seasonal changes can affect the outward appearance of your home. Fallen leaves, wilting plants, and dry grass can impact the sale of your home. But there are ways to create curb appeal even in the cooler months.

Clear out the debris.

Your front yard is one of the first things prospective homebuyers see, so it’s important to keep it clean. Because cooler weather often means increased winds in Amarillo, it’s common to see leaves tossed over the driveway, debris stuck in your flower beds or even snow and ice on your walkways. Keep the debris (and potential accidents) to a minimum with daily inspections.

Opt for cold-weather plants.

Plants are the easiest ways to add curb appeal, but keeping plants looking perky can get a bit tricky in cooler weather. Select plants that can withstand the cold, such as winter hazel, camellias, Blue holly and pansies.

Add fresh paint.

Paint colors can influence a prospective buyer’s first impression of your home. Make sure you keep your home up to date with a fresh coat of paint for a brand new look. You can also opt for a power wash of your property to remove any dirt or residue that may be making your surfaces look worn.

Shed some light.

Homes are often shown to potential buyers in the evenings after working hours. In the fall and winter months when the sun sets earlier, adding light to the outside of your home can help better showcase its features.
