10 Low Cost Ways To Add Curb Appeal To Your Mount Pleasant Home For Sale!

If your home makes a great first impression, everyone -- including potential Mount Pleasant home buyers -- will want to see what is inside! Below are 10 great ways to boost your chances for a showing, create a lasting first impression, and get ahead of the competition...

  1. Mow the lawn often and trim bushes - especially the ones that block your windows and diminish sunlight. If Palm fronds are yellow, brown, or broken prune them off.
  2. Purchase a new doormat.
  3. Add a bright pot of seasonal flowers on your front porch and place a seasonal wreath on your front door.
  4. Paint your front door. Living in the lowcountry, Mt Pleasant residents know that hot sun and salty air can cause paint to chip and fade. A fresh coat of paint on your front door will go a long way to impress home buyers. Replace any old, tarnished doorknobs on your doors and polish or replace your house numbers.
  5. Power-wash your porches, driveway, sidewalk, and the exterior of your home.
  6. Edge the grass around walks and trees plus add fresh mulch or pine straw to your planting beds.
  7. Sweep the front porch and rake leaves often.
  8. Upgrade the outdoor lighting for a feeling of safety (yes, buyers drive by your home at night too) and to add dramatic effect.
  9. Clean your gutters.
  10. Store hoses and yard equipment out of sight. Make sure these items are all in a place of their own. If needed, purchase a stand for the garage or a hose caddy for the side of the house.


Cleanliness is essential when selling your Mt Pleasant, SC home for top dollar. A clean home gives the impression that a house is well cared for. Imagine looking at a Mount Pleasant home for sale with dishes in the sink, beds unmade, dog hair on the couch, and toothpaste in the sink. This negative first impression will cause a buyer to wonder if more important items, like the HVAC, have been neglected. And buyers will likely place a lower price tag on your house, if they consider it at all! A dirty home never sells for top dollar! You can hire a professional cleaning service to deep clean your home on a regular basis (or make time for the whole family to get involved if money is tight) and be sure to take 20-30 minutes each day to maintain the house!

You never know when someone will want to see your home at the last minute. Every inch should be squeaky clean and pass the white glove test. Keeping a clean home is THE most important thing you can do while selling your home.
