Take a good look at your home’s exterior. Does it give the first impression you want to make?
What could you do better to improve the look — and maybe value — of your property?
Whether you’re planning to sell your home or you just want to make it more inviting, one of the best things you can do is add curb appeal. It’s a quick fix that makes a huge statement.
So how can you make your abode more beautiful?
Make your house (numbers) stand out. Can friends, prospective buyers and delivery people read your address from the street? Or is it too small or tarnished to see? The latter means it’s time for a change. Invest in larger, more attractive house numbers to make a big impact.
Revive your front door. This is the focal point of your home’s exterior. If yours is receding into the background, pick a bold paint color and some bright, shiny hardware to bring it back to the forefront.
Add interest with plants. Don’t just mow and edge your lawn; spruce it up with fresh mulch and flowers too. And if you flank your newly painted front door with pretty planters, it’ll pop even more.
Make the exterior sparkle. Last but not least, clean your windows so that they sparkle and shine. Don’t forget to pressure-wash your house, sidewalks and driveway so it all looks like new.
Just a little bit of work makes it more inviting and easier for buyers to picture themselves living there.
