I was pulling into my garage yesterday and realized that my home is in a rut in terms of curb appeal. After doing some research and using prior knowledge, I compiled a list of tips that will surely help you out before you start your summer project to bump up your curb appeal.
- Create symmetry and balance at your front entrance
- Be creative with your color scheme; it can be typical or you can create contrast
- Keep up with your landscaping - no one likes overgrown weeds
- Don’t overlook the importance of a new roof - if your shingles are in shambles, then get some professional help with installing new roofing
- Take time to find the right style of window because it can make or break the overall look and feel of the home
- Continually repair your driveway instead of having to replace it altogether in the future
- Your mailbox is the first impression of your home so match it with the style of your home and keep the landscaping around it looking fresh and healthy
- Make sure your house numbers are easily visible so that guests and potential buyers can find your home without difficulty
- Take the time and money to complete major renovations; it pays off in the end and will help tremendously when it’s time to put your home on the market
- And step back and look at your home from across the street to see your home from a buyer’s perspective
Your neighbors will be sure to notice your updated curb appeal after following these tips. Seek the advice of a professional before working on your major renovations to avoid structural issues down the road. Once you complete your home improvement projects, homebuyers will be swarming to your house for a tour and neighbors will be turning their heads for a sneak peek.
