Tips on How to Improve the Exterior of Your Home on a Budget

How to Improve the Exterior of Your Home with Minimal Expense

It is not necessary to do an overhaul on every inch of your home’s exterior. A simple inspection, a few fixes and possible replacements, can refresh and enhance your home’s exterior just enough to make a positive and attractive statement.

  1. Add or replace your exterior lighting fixtures. Installing new exterior front door lighting can make a dramatic difference. Solar fixtures or sensor lighting can improve the visibility of your home and save some money on your electricity bill as well. Today's buyers are tuned into green products and will appreciate them.

  2. Upgrade exterior hardware. Check that all door hinges are in good working order or if they are in need of replacing. A new front door handle could modernize or update the look and feel of an older home. Remember, a squeaky noise made by old hinges could be noticeable by a potential buyer.

  3. A small bistro set where suitable could enhance a tired old porch. An outdoor rug is a great way to add a splash of colour to a front entrance or backyard. Create an atmosphere and space where the buyer can see themselves relaxing and enjoying the home's outdoor space.

  4. Decorate your porch and front door. You can add a wreath or swag on your front entrance or place hanging plants around your yard.

  5. Replace that old doormat. This update comes at a minimal cost, with a maximum effect. A positive and practical first impression of the exterior of your home that is very welcoming. A simple touch like this can stand out and be remembered by a buyer who could be seeing multiple homes each day. Make sure they remember yours!

  6. Install flower boxes. Find unused wood and boards to create flower boxes yourself. A little paint and elbow grease, and you can create a one of a kind art piece that will surely get noticed. Everyone loves the colours and beauty of fresh flowers. They are a natural way to brighten any home, inside or out.
