6 Affordable Curb Appeal Tips
Winter is on the way out and Spring is coming in hot… or at least we hope so. Getting ready to prepare your home to sell can be stressful and sometimes expensive. Here are 6 affordable & easy ways to spruce up your home’s curb appeal!
- Pressure wash the exterior of your home
It’s important to make sure your home looks well taken care of as well as making it look fresh. If you don’t own a pressure washer you can always rent one for the day. If needed, consider washing your driveway, siding, gutters, fencing, etc. Just be careful, those things are powerful!
- Update light fixtures and hardware
Updating your light fixtures can really make a difference. Find a style that fits you and your home. You can find something more modern to a more vintage look. Make sure to match the hardware as well for a cleaner look.
- Clean the roof + repair gutters
This one is very important because it does apply more than just curb appeal. Keeping your roof and gutters in good shape is important for the longevity of them. Unaligned and crooked gutters can lower your curb appeal more than you think. Make sure all the screws and brackets are in place. It might be best to hire a pro if you aren’t comfortable cleaning your roof and making repairs to your gutters.
- Repaint the front door
Repainting the front door can be pretty affordable, and getting a fresh coat of paint on the door can really brighten up your home. You can choose neutral colors or opt with a bold pop of color!
- Creating an inviting porch appeal
Making your porch more inviting is easier than it sounds. Find yourself a couple chairs and a side table. You can also choose a pop of color and put outdoor pillows. Adding these few things will help make your yard more inviting. You could also do something more simple like adding an accent chair and some decor.
- Add greenery + plants
This one adds to the porch appeal. Using your green thumb you can add loads of plants. You can plant flowers and add a mini garden. You can also choose to plant things in pots which can help add some color. It’s important to coordinate your colors so your home isn’t too busy!
