It is the goal of the homeowners association in Glen Laurel to make Glen Laurel the best neighborhood to live in within Clayton. Prospective homeowners and Realtors are always driving through the community and many homeowners are doing their part to maintain curb appeal to help the neighborhood look its best.
Homes with great curb appeal take less time to sell and fetch a higher price. Attractive and well-maintained landscape will help improve the look of your Glen Laurel home and add value. If you are looking to spruce up your home, consider washing its exterior. Soapy water and a long-handled, soft-bristled brush can remove the dust and dirt that have splashed onto the exterior of your home over time. If you would like a faster approach, consider using a power washer to clean the outside of the home. Do not forget to wash your windows on the inside and the out.
You next want to inspect your roof. Missing, curled, or faded shingles are easily noticed by prospective buyers and will be seen by an appraiser. If you plan to sell your home, these will need to be fixed at some point in time so you may want to consider doing repairs prior to listing your home for sale.
A well-manicured lawn with pruned shrubs and fresh new mulch will improve the appearance of any home. If you have overgrown, bushes consider replacing them with leafy plants and colorful annuals. Water and add nutrients to your lawn to improve its color.
Adding a little color will attract the eye of those passing by. A flowerbed by the mailbox with brightly colored flowers will make your home pop. Color may not help your home appraise higher but it will add curb appeal and help your Glen Laurel home sell more quickly.
A nice mailbox and architectural house numbers can also help your Glen Laurel home stand out among the crowd. If a new mailbox is not in the budget, consider repainting your old one.
