Is your home ready to make a first impression? Whether welcoming guests to your residence or staging your home to put it on the market, a thoughtfully designed porch will help your property stand out. First impressions speak volumes, especially when it comes to selling your property.

One of the most fundamental aspects of selling a home is the home’s curb appeal. From the first image they see in a photo to their initial property visit, first impressions matter, according to HHI Prud’homme Team of Carolina Realty Group. In fact, the National Association of Realtors reports that 63 percent of homebuyers will drop by after viewing a home they like online. The home’s exterior—including the front entry, yard, driveway and sidewalk—should serve as a snapshot of what’s to come when potential buyers enter your home.

How can you make your home stand out? Here are a few easy tips from the design team at Branches to ‘wow’ your neighbors or potential homebuyers with a distinctive, inviting look that says, “Welcome home!”

Go faux. Not your full-time residence? No worries! High-end faux Boston ferns, grasses, and vibrant seasonal blooms will fool the neighbors, offer low-maintenance options, and are great for people with busy schedules or who can’t provide daily maintenance. Faux red geraniums are a go-to for an instant pop of color with low stress and care. They can take the rain and pollen and come back for more!

Consider proportion. Size matters. Use proportional planters and furniture on your porch. Oversized items can make the space appear cramped or undersized, while too many little pieces can make your porch feel cluttered and busy. Minimal and intentional pieces and placement are key.

Think color! Crisp pops of color attract and please the eye of would-be buyers. Go bold with seasonal blooms in bright reds, blues and yellows. Plant a bed of blooms along the sidewalk to draw buyers right to the door. No sun? No problem! Add colors that coordinate with your bedding by using faux options. Place a brightly colored bench or Adirondack chair on the front porch. Get a little daring and paint the front door red or blue. Beautiful colors enhance curb appeal and help your house sell faster.

Keep it clean. Cleanliness is next to godliness. Take the time to make sure your home’s exterior is clean and well-kept. A pressure washing of the home and driveway can make it sparkle. Make sure all landscaping is trimmed and hardscaping is leaf-free.
