With the surge in home prices and the low supply of homes across the country, it is safe to say that you can ask top dollar for your home if you’re considering a sale. However, just because the demand is high, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to increase the value of your home by adding curb appeal for cheap. While some projects are more affordable than others, adding curb appeal to your home can be beneficial in many ways.
Today, we will share with you the best curb appeal ideas to keep in mind when looking to add value to your home or make it the best looking on the street! But first, what is curb appeal anyway?
Curb appeal is what is referred to as the first impression by others when they see your home! Put another way, what type of appeal does your home offer from someone standing on the curb? Curb appeal generally refers to things like your lawn, landscaping, and the exterior of your home! Aesthetics matter when you are selling, looking to maintain your home’s value, and updating it.
Perhaps the first and most crucial step in adding curb appeal is making sure your home’s lawn is looking great. While this is sometimes easier said than done, a lush green lawn is one way to make your home stand out. However, this might mean you need to use a few of your weekends to get it in tip-top shape!
Simply adjusting the color of your front door or even replacing an old door is an effective way to increase your home’s curb appeal. You can paint your door yourself for under $45 or even have someone else do it for under $100. If you think it is time to update your door and replace it, be sure to always check with your HOA for painting and door replacement guidelines!
