When starting a home search the first view a buyer sees is typically the exterior. With that in mind sellers must take into consideration their home's curb appeal. Curb appeal can strongly influence a buyer's decision to view a home and the value of a property. It only takes a weekend to spruce up your own yard and improve curb appeal.
Here are 6 quick exterior projects you can do in a day or two to add to your home’s value and neighborhood appeal.
Landscape for curb appeal by re-sodding bare spots, trimming shrubs, and adding colorful spring flowers to your front yard.
Add some outdoor lighting for curb appeal to highlight your beautified yard after dark.
Use a power washer for a day to give your sidewalks and deck a little care and maintenance. Be gentle and careful if you decide to use the power washer to clean your home’s exterior; you can easily blast things off your house, like the paint, or get water into siding seams.
Clean your siding, whether it’s brick, wood, or vinyl, by using a long-handled, soft-bristled brush, soap and water.
Create a little cool curb appeal with house numbers — that is, dress up your address.
Freshen up the look of warn patio furniture with new pillows, a bright umbrella, or a colorful tablecloth to give the impression to anyone at the open house that the neighbors have fun parties.
