With the housing market still going strong, many homeowners are considering selling. But the key to attracting buyers is a home with strong curb appeal.
And making changes to improve your property's curb appeal and overall beauty, may require you to call for residential junk removal services.
Curb Appeal is More Than Flowers in a Pot
However, depending on the flowers - and the pot - that can be great way to brighten up portions of your front yard or entry way area.
That's because curb appeal is largely visual and psychological. It's a proven psychological dynamic that can literally add thousands to the perceived value of your home.
According to Homes.com,
Projects that add curb appeal can raise a home’s value by as much as 20 percent. “Curb appeal” refers to what potential buyers see when they drive up and park. Landscaping, hardscaping and home exteriors all count.
A more scientific approach was reported by REALTOR® Magazine,
Homes with high curb appeal tend to sell for an average of 7% more than similar houses with an uninviting exterior, according to a joint study by the University of Alabama and the University of Texas at Arlington.
And another source noted that,
A new study published in the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics and reported by the Wall Street Journal says that curb appeal has an impact on home value.
So, what we know is that in almost any real estate market, what we refer to as "curb appeal" can and does add to the resale value of a home. And the good news is, no matter what your budget, there several improvements you can make to the exterior - especially the street facing side - of you home to enhance that appeal.
Plants, Paint, Pavers, and Lights
The sheer variety of small yet substantial additions, changes, and improvements that can be made is almost overwhelming.
Fortunately, no one homeowner has to do everything, nor is that even a good idea.
Simple and noticeable is the key when it comes to curb appeal. With that in mind, we scoured the Internet looking for some type of expert consensus of what, exactly, makes for the best property upgrades that will optimize your home's curb appeal.

Think about this, too, in terms of your ROI of time and materials.
What can you do on a small budget and a few hours of work that can essentially add 5 to 20 percent to the selling price of your home? In other words, on a typical $287,000 house in the U.S. you could see anywhere from $14,350 to upwards of more than $57,000 added to your asking price - all for some substantial, but essentially cosmetic upgrades!
That being said, another result of this work will likely be some piles of debris, trash, and other junk that will need to be gotten rid of before your home can be put on the market.

Residential Junk Removal After Improving Your Curb Appeal
When spiffing up your house when preparing to sell, you likely know that getting rid of all the piles of junk can be a large task. And you may not have the vehicle or "people" power to manage it all.
Because you expect that someone else will be moving in later, like new homeowners , it is really important that when those large, heavy items are hauled out of the house that the home isn’t damaged in the process.
In addition to enhancing a home's curb appeal, when the house is going to be sold it's important to make sure that it's clean and repaired before being shown to prospective buyers. On top of that, another critical task is to ensure that all of your own belongings have been removed so that you can quickly show the house once it's listed on the market.
Moving cleanouts can be both physically and emotionally overwhelming, especially for family members. And as real estate professionals who offer to help with the cleanout know, that stress can be substantially relieved by hiring outside help.
Which is why a professional property trash removal service such as Junk King is a great choice, especially for removing old, unwanted furniture and other large items. in addition, Junk King will ensure that the property is left safe and clean, which is especially important when the property has already been vacated by the sellers and left large amounts of junk behind.
Our professional and insured junk disposal team will show up at the home and we call 15 to 30 minutes before we arrive on site. We’ll give you a free estimate based on how much room your items take up in our truck. You just point and we haul your bulk trash items into our junk removal trucks, with no hidden fees.
