Curb Appeal on a Budget

There are plenty of small, inexpensive home improvements that can help your properties curb appeal. These simple and cheap upgrades not only makes it easier to sell, but it also gives your house that finished look that you can take pride in. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Paint the Front Door

Exterior paint costs about $35 a gallon. Painting your front door can add some brightness and revive the look of your entry.

Plant a Tree, or some shrubs

A well-manicured lawn with established trees, shrubs and plants will always boost a home’s curb appeal.

Clean and Pressure Wash

Clean the driveway, walkways, fences, gutters, siding and whatever else looks grungy — you can even wash your patio furniture.

Replace the Mailbox

If you have a mailbox at the street, consider replacing it if it looks old and shabby.

Update the Lighting

ExtExterior light fixtures can be found from $25 and up. Check salvage shops if you want to try to find vintage lighting to match the age and look of your home.

Use Rocks to Fill empty spots in the garden

If your flower beds are looking sparse, use large boulders to fill in the open spaces.

Fill your Stoop With some foliage

Make your entryway impressive with planters full of seasonal color and some cute outdoor decor.

Give the Garage Door a Refresh

ExThe garage can often take up a large part of a home’s front façade, so you should make sure it’s attractive. Pressure washing, a fresh coat of paint, new hardware and window coloring can go a long way.

These little touches can help get a few more eyes on your home. Even if it’s not the right fit, great curb appeal may persuade potential buyers to give it a second look.
