Your home’s curb appeal is instrumental in two major aspects when selling your home: how long it will take to sell and how much money you will receive. When you take care of the details outside, potential buyers will be more excited to see what’s inside. Forget about the exterior details and you can expect to keep dropping the list price, trying to lure in a buyer.
Fortunately, not all exterior upgrades have to break the bank. Even on the tightest budget, there are things you can do to spruce up your curb appeal and draw in potential buyers. It just requires attention to fine details and a little hard work. Here are some of our favorite upgrades for those on a budget.
Paint the Trim
Painting your entire house may be a little out of your budget, but adding a new coat of paint to the trim can make your home look fresh and vibrant and requires very little financial investment. Color selection is important for resale, so choose a color that will complement the rest of your house. A professional consult can help you choose the best color scheme.
Add Some Green
Having your property professionally landscaped can cost you big, but a trip to the nursery and a few hours on a weekend can do wonders to beautify your home. Simply adding a few ornamental trees, some strategically placed shrubs and a couple of flower beds can transform your yard and give your home a little eye candy. The best part is that plants are relatively cheap and all it requires is a little bit of your time.
Give a Deep Cleaning
Our porches, sidewalks and driveways take a beating daily and rarely get any attention. Dirt and grime becomes embedded into them and it almost starts to look natural to us. A good, deep cleaning with a pressure washer can turn back the years and return your investment to its original beauty.
