Improving Curb Appeal

Whether you are planning to sell or just want to make your living space a bit more “homey”, curb appeal is the best place to start. It is the first thing people notice when they look at your home. It is also one of the cheapest and least time-consuming ways to add value to your home. Here are a few ways to enhance the curb appeal of your home.

  • Remove Yard Clutter
    You would be surprised by what cleaning up branches and leaves can do for your home’s overall appearance. 
  • Yard Storage
    An overabundance of garden equipment can be a huge eyesore. Find creative ways to store garden tools that might be lying around.
  • Wash or Paint Exterior
    Give your home’s exterior paint some much needed TLC. If painting is just too much work, consider giving the outside a quick wash.
  • New Numbers
    Is your home easy to find? The numbers on your home may need updating. This could mean the difference for a potential buyer finding your place.
  • Windows
    Make sure that your windows are clean and sealed properly. This is an easy project and will make a notable difference on potential buyers’ perceptions of your home.
  • Front Lawn
    Make sure that your lawn is fresh, green and maintained. Consider spending a day to pull weeds and trim the grass. This will help potential buyers visualize themselves in their “new home”.
