4 SIMPLE WAYS TO ADD MORE VALUE TO YOUR HOME WITH CURB APPEAL

Curb appeal is a significant factor for home buyers. The exterior of your home is the first thing buyers will see when they come to a showing or open house, and you want to make a great first impression. And even if you’re not selling your home, these are low-cost, low-time investment fixes that can make a big difference.

FIX LANDSCAPING EYESORES

A brown, dead lawn—or an overgrown one—isn’t the best way to welcome buyers to your home. If your yard needs repair, consider watering it regularly. If your grass is healthy, keep the lawn freshly mowed. An appealing yard can be worth more than $1,500 in the final price of your home.

SHUTTERS AND SIDING

It’s easy to let your exterior walls fall into disrepair, or even to let them get a little dirty. A good scrubbing or power washing can make your siding look brand new, and you can touch up any significant issues with some paint. The same goes for your shutters.

ADD SOME LIVING ACCENTS

So far, we’ve covered fixing what’s broken. Next, it’s time to add a little personality. Planting flowers will add some much-needed color to an otherwise common outdoor space. Potted plants will do the trick, too, especially if you have a deck or patio that needs a little decorating.

WORK ON YOUR WALKWAY

The path to your front door should be inviting. A stone walkway from the driveway instantly upgrades your curb appeal. And if you’ve already taken care of that part, tidy up by removing weeds and debris, and then line the walkway with some subtle lighting. It’ll make your home look cozy and appealing, day or night.
