Curb Appeal Design

Sell Your House Faster And For More Money

Course Summary

Learn curb appeal design to raise the value of a house without paying a designer

This course will teach you how to improve the front landscape and entry way of your property to attract interested buyers, increase the property value, and achieve a sale as quickly as possible. This course is geared toward real estate investors, both flippers who want to sell properties and buy and hold investors who want to attract great tenants and high rental rates. This course would also be beneficial for home owners and real estate agents who want to prepare properties for sale.

Have you ever looked at the front of your house and thought, "This could really use some sprucing up," only to shrug and throw up your hands when it came time to try to figure out exactly how to improve the curb appeal? I'm a landscape architect, and I can tell you, you are not alone. The most common thing people ask me when they find out that I'm a designer is "what can I do to make my house look better?"

For real estate investors, the problem gets much bigger, because they are trying to fix up the property to make money on it, whether they plan to sell it or keep it and rent it out. Either way, the curb appeal needs to be gorgeous so they can make as much money as possible in the shortest time possible.

I'm also a real estate investor myself, and I know from experience, very few investors want to pay a designer to figure out how to improve the curb appeal for them. Especially if it involves landscaping the curb appeal, most people want to believe they can do it themselves. And I'm here to help that become reality.

Develop the skills you need to:

  • Target your design based on analyzing your house, your neighborhood, and your ideal buyer
  • Create a scope of work and cost estimate to streamline communications with your contractor
  • Develop base drawings to use in exploring your ideas
  • Explore some design concepts to help hone your skills
  • Define your design goals so you can further target the design and keep things as simple and cost-effective as possible
  • Value engineer your design if it goes over budget

Who should take the course:

This course is geared toward real estate investors, both flippers who want to sell properties and buy and hold investors who want to attract great tenants and high rental rates. This course would also be beneficial for home owners and real estate agents who want to prepare properties for sale.

Who should not take the course:

If you need sealed and signed drawings for your project, this course will not give you the necessary credentials to seal the drawings yourself. In my experience, most of the time when a permitting agency requires sealed and signed drawings, those must be provided by a licensed professional. If you feel a strong calling to become licensed, you'll need to explore accredited degree granting programs.

For everyone else, who just needs to design great curb appeal, this course will help you learn how to do that. I won't tell you what to design; I'll give you the tools to use your own creativity, and I'll show you how to do the research that will tell you what is most effective in your neighborhood for the type of house you are working on and the type of buyer you hope to reach.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Curb appeal represents the first impression your buyer gets of the house when they arrive - or as they scroll through online listings. Great curb appeal is the very best advertising you've got for your property.

Yes, and the research proves it. Keep in mind, though, the price bump you can get will depend on a lot of factors, including the existing condition of the curb appeal and the neighborhood where the house is located. It will also depend on which improvements you decide to undertake and the level of finish.

The key to selling (or renting) faster is to create curb appeal that immediately makes your buyer feel at home. Knowing what your ideal buyer wants is the first step to making the right choices on which curb appeal improvements to make.

Yes, the course can help you make good decisions no matter what market you work in. That's because I teach you how to analyze your market and make decisions based on the specifics of your buyer, neighborhood, and house. I'm not offering you static tips, but a system for making good decisions based on relevant data.

That depends. If you're already great at designing curb appeal, you may not need the course, but if you want to dial in your efforts to make more targeted decisions, the course could be worthwhile for you. The goal is to give you a system that results in cost effective improvements targeted directly to your ideal buyer.
