Boost the Curb Appeal of Your Fairbanks Home This Winter
As the rest of the country prepares for a massive thaw in the upcoming weeks, the Alaskan real estate market will probably look like a winter wonderland for another couple of months. On the bright side, we still have plenty of opportunities for skiing, sledding, ice fishing, and snowmobiling before the season begins to change. However, if you’re a homeowner planning to sell your home in Fairbanks this spring, you might be wondering how to boost your home’s appearance under all of this ice and snow. Luckily, there are a few ways to make your home stand out in the Alaskan real estate market despite the stark white landscape. Here are Madden Real Estate’s tips for enhancing your curb appeal this winter.
Clear away ice and snow
Be sure to stay on top of ice and snow accumulation outside of your Fairbanks home. Not only will a shoveled sidewalk and driveway make your home look well kept, it will also be easily accessible to prospective homebuyers.
Invest in exterior lighting
Give your porch lights a thorough cleaning and change the bulbs to illuminate your front door. Furthermore, you may want to consider adding a spotlight to your front yard so that interested buyers can see your home when it’s dark outside.
Make your porch welcoming
An indoor/outdoor rug or a new welcome mat coupled with some potted spruce or pine specimens can do wonders for making your front porch feel welcoming. Hang a winter wreath on your front door as a finishing touch.
Give your front door a fresh coat of paint
One of the best ways to boost your curb appeal all year round is by applying a fresh coat of paint to your front door. Consider going for a bright shade of red to make your home pop against the white landscape.
By paying some careful attention to your home’s exterior this winter, you’ll be prepared to tackle the Alaskan real estate market with confidence in the upcoming months. At Madden Real Estate, we understand that spring is an extremely busy time for buyers and sellers alike. Rest assured that our dedicated buyer specialists and listing partners are fully prepared to walk you through every step of the home buying or home selling process.
