Enhancing Curb Appeal Makes Your Home Worth More
People are always surprised when we tell them curb appeal can significantly increase the value of their property. But it’s true. A well maintained home on the outside shows you care about the stuff on the inside. So embrace your green thumb. Release your inner Van Gough.
Add some sculpted bushes or some new colours to your flower bed to brighten things up. A fresh coat of paint can also breathe life into a lackluster exterior but don’t forget the shutters and window boxes. Choose complementary colours to enhance the beauty of your home and watch how others stop to admire your artistry.
Open Door Policy
Your front door is often the first thing people see. Flakey or faded paint can be uninviting so make sure to renew the look. Add interest by decorating it according to the season, like different wreaths during holidays. Take a whimsical approach and wrap your door like a Christmas present or decorate it with a bright coloured bow. This lets others know you care about the appearance of your home and that you’re willing to go the extra mile to make sure it looks attractive at all times.
A Worn Out Welcome
Rusty hinges, door handles and guard rails are unsightly making your home look less welcoming. Purchase some shiny new hardware to add some luster. Make sure the style of fixtures complement the appearance of your home. A few basic tools and a trip to the local hardware store, you can polish things up in no time.
Paint By Numbers
Help homebuyers to find your home more easily with a fresh coat of paint on your house numbers (black on light coloured homes and white on darker ones). If you’ve got 3-dimensional numbers polish, clean or sand them. Replace them if there’s no way to pretty them up. You’d be surprised how such a simple change can make a difference.
Mailboxes see their fair share of wear and tear over the years. Replacing your mailbox every few years can add a new breath of life to your home. Although this may seem minor it shows how much you care about your home.
How Does Your Garden Grow?
The right types of flowers and shrubbery can make an old home look new again. A burst of colour and adding new silhouettes can give your home curb-stopping appeal.
If you’re lost as to which plants to pick, talk to your local home & garden expert or considering hiring a lawn care specialist. It may be an added expense but it’ll be worth it. You’ll be able to enjoy your home inside and out.
Small changes can really make the difference in the number of people interested in your home and your home’s value. So have some fun with painting and planting. Show others you care about your home before they even see the heart of it.
