Whether you are planning on putting your house on the market or you're looking for a little exterior facelift.....slight repairs affect the property well beyond its first impression. With a few simple projects you can increase its value and add some extra style.
One of the first things that people see is a mailbox. if it is broken, rusted or dented it can cause buyers to look the other way before even setting eyes on the rest of the house. Consider repainting or replacing it. Now concentrate on the door. Adding a decorative door knocker and house numbers is a great way to add charm and style to this focal point of the house.
No matter what the size of the front yard, a well manicured lawn is important to boosting the home's curb appeal. Simple tasks like weeding, edging sidewalks and removing unsightly plants growing between concrete and bricks can make a huge difference without a lot of effort. Add new mulch, plants and flowers. Lush bushes and bright plants against a fresh flower bed can serve as an attractive welcome. And if you're feeling extra daring, adding lights, both to your walkway and front porch can illuminate your newly transformed yard from dusk through dawn.
