First impressions count, and not just in social situations. When it comes to your home it’s important to give it great curb appeal. Here are a few exterior improvements that will surely pique the interests of potential buyers.
Those dark, difficult to remove stains on your retaining wall aren’t just an eyesore. They’re actually the accumulation of dirt, grime, and other contaminants making your home look neglected. Pressure washing or soft washing makes a difference for everything from the roof, to the sidewalk, to the driveway.
Landscaping makes a huge impact when it comes to curb appeal. A groomed lawn and garden tell potential buyers that a home has been well-maintained. Just a few new plants and fresh mulch make any home look tidy and cared for.
Update outdoor lighting
More than just a safety feature, exterior lighting gives your home a warm, welcoming glow. The right lighting can increase your home’s appeal, especially in the evenings when it highlights architectural details and spotlights your beautiful new landscaping.
Nothing changes the appearance of your home more drastically than paint. Changing the paint color completely changes the look. Just make sure to select universally liked colors, like white or off-white, grays, neutrals, warm yellows, or light blues.
Replace old windows
Windows contribute to your home’s aesthetic. But, beyond the visual appeal, windows also enhance a home’s energy efficiency and hurricane preparedness.
Boosting your home’s curb appeal won’t just make you the envy of your neighbors, it will also make your home stand out, which is essential when it’s on the market. Investing in these types of physical improvements will certainly impact your home’s curb appeal, but coordinating those efforts takes plenty of time and organization.
