Make Your Homes Stand Out with These 4 Tricks

It can be challenging to make your home stand out in a neighborhood where all houses look the same. It’s important, though, especially if you’re planning to put your home on the market. Last week, our network of 19,000 real estate professional weighed in on this challenge. Here’s what they said.

Show Stopping Ideas

In a neighborhood with similar looking homes, I’ve got a few “show stopping” ideas to make your home pop! First, consider adding a pop of color to your home with a vibrantly painted front door and shutters. (Make sure to get the color approved with the Homeowners Association, if applicable.) Next, instead of a front door wreath, consider an oversized last name initial or other custom piece to adorn your front door. Hop on Pinterest for some unique ideas! And lastly, spice up your curb appeal with landscape lighting, eye-popping, colorful flowers, and a welcoming sitting area with bright colored seating and/or cushions.

Curb Appeal

Be sure that the home’s front and back yards have real curb appeal, even to the point of helping spiff up the yard and putting a nice wreath and welcome mat at the front door.

Paint & Furniture

Paint trim house and especially the front door. In a sea of beige, a pop of color will go a long way. Other ways to make a house more unique is to have great outdoor furniture, throw pillows, flower pots & a unique sculpture.
