Curb Appeal for Cabins?

By: Austin Lansing

People are always wondering if curb appeal applies to areas where there really isn't a curb. The High Country in Georgia is a fine example of such a place. In an area where acreages are by far more common than other areas of the nation, curb appeal takes on a whole new meaning. With huge yards that are most of the time; larger than an average city block, it can be easy to let nature take over. Yards of this size that get out of control are tricky to bring back into shape so it is much easier to take care of them on a weekly basis so that the overgrowth does not get on top of you.

People who are looking for homes in this kind of area are really looking for something out of the ordinary and different.

These are people who are looking for the wide open spaces and fields that North Georgia can supply and they are ready for the work involved in maintaining such a property. So what can you do to your acreage to improve its selling chances? Well, break out the old lawn tractor and make sure that the whole property is nicely cut and trimmed. Make sure that any clearing of the property that needs to be done is done. Your property can be quite desirable if there is additional room to build or add on to the existing home. Another good idea if your property has a long wooded drive is to ensure that the drive is trimmed back, with no branches that will scratch the cars of prospective buyers. Also fix any large depressions or potholes in the drive as well.

Beyond keeping the property itself in top-notch shape, the usual tenets of curb appeal should apply to the home itself. Cleanliness and care are always appreciated by any buyer. Make sure all the appliances and fixtures are in good working order. If the home is a more heritage style home then older appliances and wood stoves may be a part of the charm of the home. Always have these items checked to ensure they are working properly and safely and that there are no concerns regarding them.
