One of the best things you can to do improve the curb appeal of your home is to clean and tidy the exterior. Start by giving your patio a thorough cleaning, by using a power washer you can remove all the dirt and grime off of your home and walkways/driveways. You can also use a power washer to give your patio furniture and landscape rocks a fresh new look. Also make sure to check your gutters to ensure there is not any leftover debris from the fall and winter.

Lawn Maintenance

The front lawn is the first thing people will see when they pull up to your home, also one of the first things they’ll see when searching Calgary real estate listings online, and first impressions are everything. Make sure you fertilize your lawn if it is looking a little dead (this is best to do in the spring), then make sure you mow the lawn regularly so it looks beautifully cut. To make sure the grass does not lean to one side, mow the lawn in a different direction each time you mow.

Having a nice green lawn is great, but adding some extra color to your landscaping can really help to make your home pop. Add some bright colorful flowers and plants to your garden, and if you don’t have a garden, you can always put some potted plants around the house, walkways, etc.

Night time lighting

When people are viewing homes on the Calgary real estate market, they may not always have time to view your home during the day, and may choose to do a viewing in the evening, so make sure the exterior of your home is will lit. You can add some solar lights on each side of your driveway and walkway, as well as some nice patio lighting in the back for some great ambience.
