Boost Your Curb Appeal

Selling a home is no easy task.  You need all the edge over the competition you can get. So when buyers come to your home, what do they see first? Your home’s exterior is the first thing buyers see, and it can make or break a sale.  What are some affordable and simple ways you can spice up your curb appeal?

Replace Old Hardware
Replace old hardware, such as door knobs and house numbers, with fresh new fixtures.

Makeover the Mailbox
If your mailbox is next to your home (not across the street), then you can spruce it up to compliments your home. Pick a box that reflects your home’s trimmings. You can paint the post or surround it with flowers.

Add Planters
You can place various potted plants on the front steps and patio, complimenting you garden.

Outdoor Lighting
Low voltage lighting along paths and walkways is a striking way to add flare to your home.

Reveal the Architecture
Don’t go overboard with plants and landscaping that can hide your home. Keep your landscaping back from the home to let it shine.

Pressure Wash the Exterior
This is a quick and easy makeover that will make your home shine.. A pressure washer can be rented at most hardware and home improvement stores, and are easy to operate.

Display a Wreath
Welcome buyers with a beautiful seasonal wreath on the front door.

Lay Out a Path
You can use pavers to make a curved walkway and add unique flair to your yard.

A Fresh Coat of Paint
A fresh coat of paint can liven up any home, especially if the current coat is fading or chipped, or the color is outdated.

Add Window Boxes and Shutters
Adding colorful shutters with window boxes with matching paint will brighten up any exterior. You can also add colorful flowers to make it stand out even more.

Line Up the Porch Chairs
If you have a porch large enough for a few chairs, make sure they’re lined up. If you don’t have matching porch chairs, it would be worth investing in a set.

These are just a few ways you can spice up the exterior of your home and drive a higher price on your home for sale.
