Adding curb appeal makes your home more welcoming and more appealing to potential buyers. Here are a few ways to increase your home’s curb appeal and let first impressions speak for themselves.
1. Fix or replace roofing as needed. Gutters and downspouts that look neglected should also be repaired or replaced. A roofing contractor can give you an estimate and save you the hassle of climbing up on the roof to do it yourself.
2. Make the front entry appealing. Paint the door, change out the hardware, add a welcome mat, seasonal wreath or potted plants. Small punches of color can really ramp up the wow factor of your front entry.
3. Spruce up your porch, deck or patio. Clean and restain the decking and change the railing so that it is safe and matches the rest of the home.
4. Pay attention to the big picture. If your home’s façade has seen better days, a few home improvements might be just what you need. Paint the trim, replace the siding and have damaged windows fixed or replaced.
