Fixing the Outside of your Home

Curb appeal is always something spoken of when it comes to purchasing a home or even when it comes to visiting a home. Curb appeal is something you want when selling your home or when your welcome visitors. How do you know if you have curb appeal? If you need curb appeal, how do you get it?

Looking at your home each day makes you more oblivious to the eye sores or the real beauty your home front really possesses. Walk across the street and take some pictures of the outside of your home to get a good look at what needs to be fixed up and to get an idea of what is working for your home. If you are still lost during this exercise, pull out some pictures of well landscaped homes to get a better idea of what you’re aiming for.

Now that you see that you need to make some changes to give your yard the look you want. What steps do you need to take to make your yard beautiful giving you the curb appeal you desire?

Some simple things you can do:

Fresh paint – Paint the whole house if needed, but you may need to only update the trim to accent your home
Update windows – Are your windows outdated? Maybe you only need better window shading options.

c. Landscaping – This may be as simple as a quick trim to your bushes and some weed pulling, but you may need to do more. Planting flowers or a tree may be ideal.
d. The door and entry way – Is your entry way clean and clear of debris? Do you need a new door, or would a simple new coat of paint do?

These are simple steps to get you headed in the right direction. Giving your home the curb appeal you desire will help you sell your home for a better price if that is what your goal is. If you aren’t selling your home, having curb appeal will set the mood for you and your guest when walking up to your welcoming door.
