A majority of home buyers decide whether or not to take a closer look at your home based on its curb appeal. Investing resources on the appearance of your home can help make sure buyers have a great first impression of your home. Even if your home is not on the market, here are 5 helpful ways to boost your home’s curb appeal.
Power Wash Your Home
Power washing will brighten up your home’s exterior. You can also power wash your deck, driveway and any walkways you have. If you don’t have a power washer, renting one from a local home improvement store is an affordable option.
Freshly Paint Your Front Door
Consider freshly painting your front door a warm, inviting hue to create an attractive focal point. To give the exterior of your home a complete makeover, repaint the trim as well.
Water Your Lawn
So far we have had a very dry summer, and it shows. Be sure to water your lawn, plants and flowers to them looking healthy and beautiful. Remove any plants or flowers that have died.
Clear Away Weeds
Keep your garden and patio clean of leaves, weeds and debris. Flowerbeds should be weeded, the lawn should be mowed and hedges should be clipped.
Add Some Color
Spruce up your home by adding colorful flowers to flower containers on your porch or patio. You can also add color by planting flowers in front beds or hanging window boxes.
