March is almost over and Spring is in the air.....let's talk about how curb appeal can add value to your home!
What is the first thing people see when they come to your home? It's not the inside of your home. It's your YARD and the EXTERIOR of your home! Remember, first impressions mean a lot (especially when you are trying to sell your house)! Curb appeal does not have to be super extravagant and expensive, but a few nice touches will really help make your home and yard look more cohesive and inviting. Which in turn adds value to your property!
Curb appeal can be as simple as having a neat, well maintained lawn with a few nice flower beds, or an eye-catching front entry way. Your front entry way and front yard should be free of clutter. Little pops of color (think colorful planters or maybe a colorful welcome sign), and an updated eye-pleasing mailbox can make a world of difference! If the exterior of your home is looking a little dingy, try pressure-washing it. If needed, a fresh coat of paint outside can really make a huge impact!
Check out my Pinterest Curb Appeal Inspiration Board for more ideas on how to spruce up your yard. Most of the ideas are simple DIY projects, and low-cost! Have fun and enjoy the increase in your home's value!
