Adding Curb Appeal Can Help Sell Your Home Faster

With the housing and foreclosure crisis, there are a lot of vacant or soon-to-be vacant properties on the market.  If you’re listing your home, you most likely have plenty of competition, because the housing bust affected homes of all price levels, in most areas, from high-end homes in exclusive gated communities to small ramblers in congested urban neighborhoods.  Anything you can do to boost your home’s curb appeal will give you an advantage.  The first impression prospective buyers get is when they drive buy your home; if they don’t like what they see in the front of your home, the inside probably won’t get a look.  All those upgrades you made indoors won’t even get to make an impression.

So it’s important, now more than ever, to make sure your home’s exterior is as fresh and inviting as possible.  Siding continues to be the most cost-effective home improvement you can make – interior or exterior – as far as what it delivers in increase in home value in proportion to the cost.  Siding is also the biggest overall change you can make.  But whether you’re ready for a full-fledged exterior home improvement project such as replacing your siding or windows, there are a number of things you can do to improve your home’s curb appeal.  Better Homes & Gardens has photos and information on 20 things you can do, many of them relatively inexpensive and able to be done in a day.  A number of them have to do with your front door – things like replacing hardware, putting in stylish house numbers, or flanking your door with matching sconces.

Taking good care of your home and maintaining its appearance as fresh and inviting is important whether you’re selling your home or just want to enjoy living in it.  If you have questions about exterior home improvement projects to help with resale, please give us a call.
