Simple Tips to Update your Curb Appeal

 Want to make your house pop in your neighborhood? Whether you are buying, selling or simply want to update the look of your home these tips can point you in the right direction. Here are some tips to give your home the curb appeal it needs to stand out. 

  • Paint - Painting the front of your home can give it what it needs to make an impression on any potential buyer or seller. There are computer programs that will let you "test" house colors to see what it could look like before you decide to make the color change. The front door is an important aspect that can really make a draw. A bold color that compliments the house color is very important.
  • House Numbers - Adding new house numbers can make an impact in a very simple way. Just by updating the location and style can create an eye catching element.
  • Lighting - Consider path lighs, wall sconces or a statement overhead light piece to create the perfect outdoor nighttime scene.
  • Porches - If a porch or a simple overhang is an aspect of your house then a change of railing or updating the steps to the porch can also make the impact that you may be looking for.
  • Pathways - Pathways can be a place were you can create a statement that leads people directly to your property. Putting the time and money into making sure that your pathway is neat and clear can make all the difference.
  • Landscaping - Keeping your lansdscaping simple and neat, especially while selling, is one of the best ways to present your home in the best light. No one wants to think about upkeep or the amount of time needed to keep the home in order before purchasing.

With just some simple changes or additions you can present your home in the very best light to your neighborhood!
