Though temperatures in the Queen City have been unseasonably warm lately, spring is still a few weeks away. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about how to improve your home’s curb appeal this spring especially if you are planning to sell. Homes with great curb appeal demand attention and often add more value. The way your house looks from the street is the first impression a potential buyer will have about your home so make it a great one! The good news is you don’t have to break the bank trying to improve your home’s curb appeal. A little bit of hard work and a few dollars can go a long. Here are three things you can do for less than $100 to spruce up your curb appeal this spring.
1. Paint. A can of paint and a paint brush can do wonders for your home’s exterior! Touch up chipped paint on porches, benches, doors and mailboxes for an instant update. Have some fun with color by painting a bright front door or incorporating a few festive flower pots that will make your entry way vibrant and welcoming.
2. Clean up your yard. A well-manicured yard is a great way to boost any home’s curb appeal. Start by removing all of the sticks, leaves and debris from your yard that may have accumulated over the winter months. Pull weeds, cut grass and cover up bare spots with seed or sod and you’ll have a beautiful yard that’s sure to attract the next buyer.
3. Fix your features. Review everything from your door knobs, exterior lights and doorbell to ensure they don’t look dated. You can really give your home a facelift by updating simple fixtures. Remember to replace your exterior lightbulbs so your entry way shines bright on rainy days and at night.
