Budget Friendly Ways to Boost Your Curb Appeal

Thinking of selling? Or maybe your home is already on the market but you haven’t seen the kind of activity you were hoping for. In any case, refining your curb appeal can go a long way. This not only improves your presence both online and in person, it shows potential buyers that you’ve cared for your home and makes it much more inviting. Here are a few easy, budget-friendly projects you can tackle over the weekend.

The Basics…

  1. Start with a blank slate – get rid of outside clutter/distractions + deep clean if needed (you can rent a power washer from your local hardware store for particularly troublesome or hard to reach areas)

  2. Get your landscape in order (trim bushes, remove dead blooms, mow + edge your lawn, pull weeds, etc)

  3. Fix broken window screens, trim, screen doors, etc

Now onto the fun stuff…

  1. Update your outdoor lighting fixtures for a brighter, more welcoming entry 

  2. Add fresh greenery and flowers 

  3. Update house numbers with something that reflects your home’s personal style 

  4. Freshen your front door with a new coat of paint + updated hardware 

  5. Audit your exterior paint – is it in good shape? Are your colors neutral/appealing? Get a second opinion if you’re unsure. 

  6. Hang a seasonally appropriate wreath 

  7. Freshen up outdoor furniture/living space with a few new throw pillows + an outdoor rug 

  8. Add a pop of color – whether its trim, front door, mailbox, shutters, etc. 

  9. Create a pathway to the entrance of your home  

  10. Replace old, worn welcome mats with something bright + cheery 

Once you’ve tackled a few of these projects, make sure to take some time to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor – you earned it!
