You only have one chance to make a first impression and the same can be said for your home. Creating curb appeal is key for homeowners, buyers and sellers alike, local experts agree. If the house doesn’t pop from the road, then you can be out of luck. Below are some key tips to keep in mind. To read more tips, check out the full article here.
Landscaping is Key. Proper landscaping can add a finished touch to a new home.
Color Goes a Long Way. The color of the front door and gutters can make a big impact with just a little bit of work and effort. Sometimes a fresh coat of paint or a new color on the front door can improve things tremendously.
The Difference is in the Details. Just like decorating your living room, you may want to add a few bright decorative touches as focal points- like a birdbath, bird house, a stick-in-the-ground trellis, or a bench. Adding a new mailbox or replacing old light fixtures are another easy upgrade.
Don’t Forget Decks and Driveways. Through the years, mold and mildew can collect on surfaces outside the home. Getting these cleaned is a big boost to your home’s appearance.
