Budget Friendly Ways to Boost Your Home's Curb Appeal

Make your home more eye-catching to prospective buyers. Doing a few home improvements give your house a better and nice look making it faster to sell. Here are easy-to-do ideas for you to work on.

Paint the Front Door

According to Zillow study, your front door color impacts the price offer on your home. Actual and prospective homebuyers are more appealed to the color of slate blue.

Adding a pop of color to your door makes it attractive and more inviting. Check out which color best suits the exterior of your home here.

Coordinate Colors

Symmetry is important when talking about the exterior colors of your home. It provides a well-balanced and polished look.

Clean and Pressure Wash

Sidewalks and driveways acquire dirt and grime. Use a pressure wash to remove these. It makes a huge difference. When dealing with older concrete, do a small test first before going all out. If your walkway has tile, use a soft-bristled brush on it.

Trim Overgrown Shrubs and Trees

You would not want a messy looking landscape. Get those extra branches and leaves trimmed by a professional.

Well-Groomed Lawn

Take time to mow the lawn and maintain its lush green prior to selling. When your lawn is too unhealthy and brown, you might want to considering installing new sods. Keep it watered and taken care of.

Put Potted Plants in Your Front-way Stairs

Vary the kind of plants and their container sizes. Keep in mind about symmetry and coordinating colors. Nicely arranged potted plants makes the home extra inviting and welcoming.

Yard Cleanup

Remove clutter such as kids' toys, yard tools, forgotten newspapers, and sloppy hoses. Rake out dried leaves and twigs to make your landscape shine.

Sparkling Windows

Give your windows a thorough cleaning. This will make your house look bright and cheerful. It also allows more natural light in.

Upgrade the Garage Door

Garage doors often dominate the house exterior in many neighborhoods. You can repaint your garage door to match the sidings or choose a same contrasting shade like your front door.


When you want to add more value to the offer price on your home, it is best to boost your curb appeal as it attracts more potential homebuyers.
