When you’re getting ready to list a home for sale, there are certain bits of advice you’ll hear from pretty much all professionals — among them: take care of your deferred maintenance, make sure your bathrooms and kitchen are on point, and do everything you can to nail the curb appeal.
They’re all important, absolutely. And it’s easy to get why it’s key to focus on the latter — you know what they say about first impressions.
For this week’s weekend Open Houses roundup, I decided to pinpoint a few homes hosting Open Houses in Davidson and Williamson County that really nailed the curb appeal part of the equation — homes that at first glance really want to make you look further.
For starters, let’s take a look at the mix of Open House options we have this weekend:
The interior of this 4-bed, 2 1/2-bath Westhaven home is a stunner, from the plantation shutters and custom built-ins to the stately staircase. But you can’t deny the curb appeal from the start — the eye-grabbing porch railings, the contrasting black shutters and door against the light, the sculpted front beds… Neat as a pin, and really makes you want to explore. Which you can do Sunday — open 2 to 4 p.m.
When you have a front porch like this, it’s smart to make the most of it — porch swing, comfy seating with pops of bright-colored pillows, ceiling fans that make it easy to picture comfortable Sunday mornings in the spring, fall and summer… The backyard has serious charm, too. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
The charm of a 1939 Colonial was a great starting point, but there are some really great exterior touches to this 4-bed, 4-bath home in Green Hills (with more than 3,200 square feet) that really make the curb appeal pop, including the contrast of the grey color scheme and the bright red door, the cute streetlamp, the manicured landscaping… and can’t overlook that mature Magnolia tree. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Everything down to the rocking chairs, white picket fence and American flag — this 3-bed, 2 1/2-bath newer home in Thompson’s Station doesn’t miss a beat in the curb appeal department, and with 10-foot ceilings, granite, stainless and beautiful tile work, it’s doing OK inside too. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

by TJ AndersonI’m starting to sense a little bit of Fixer Upper back
"TJ is a true professional. My wife and I were looking for a home last summer, TJ worked very hard tracking down the sellers agents and even negotiated the price down within our budget. We actually had an offer in place when we decided to pull the offer (we got our heads back) at the last minute. TJ was unfazed (I would have been more than a little peeved if a customer was that close to purchase and then backed out) and took it all in stride. You can tell a lot about someone when things are going their way. You can tell even more about them when things don't work out.
I would highly recommend (and have recommend) TJ to anyone selling a home in the Middle Tennessee area. Zach D."
