Over the past few weeks there has been one thing weighing heavy on our minds, selling our home. We have been talking about it, worrying about it, wondering about it, and dreading the process. But most importantly, we have been preparing. Work, work, work, work, work… my life feels like a Rhianna song. As we wrap our last few tasks, we are hoping and praying that all of the planning and preparing we have done will give us an edge on the competition.
Today I wanted to share with you a few of the things we have been doing to get our home market ready.
As the day grows closer and closer to putting a for sale sign in our front yard I have started noticing a few things. Like the siding that really needs power washed, our dirty windows that should probably be cleaned, and the landscaping that you might say I have slightly neglected. Lately the phrase curb-appeal has been going through my brain on repeat. I know we need to make every effort to set us apart and enhance the charm & character that our home has.
One of the biggest eye-sores in our front yard is a flower bed. About 4 years ago I built some beautiful, curvy, stone beds in the front of the yard. It was a labor of love that took an entire weekend but after I planted them… I let them go 😳 . A few of the plants didn’t survive the first couple of years and I never bothered to replace them. I knew a simple way to add more curb appeal to our home would be bringing new life to this very sad flower bed.
