Low-Cost Ways To Spruce Up The Exterior of Your Home

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Ellis Property Investments

Your home can become more appealing for you and potential buyers by using these low-cost tips:

 

  1. Trim bushes so they don’t block windows or architectural details.

  2. Mow your lawn, and turn on the sprinklers for 30 minutes before the showing to make the lawn sparkle.

  3. Put a pot of bright flowers (or a small evergreen in winter) on your porch.

  4. Install new doorknobs on your front door.

  5. Repair any cracks in the driveway.

  6. Edge the grass around walkways and trees.

  7. Keep your garden tools and hoses out of sight.

  8. Clear toys from the lawn.

  9. Buy a new mailbox.

 10. Upgrade your outside lighting.

 11. Buy a new doormat for the outside of your front door.

 12. Clean your windows, inside and outside.

 13. Polish or replace your house numbers.

 14. Place a seasonal wreath on your door.

Doretha, I think #12 is so important and is basically just elbow grease.

#3 is a great recommendation for anyone with a bland home lacking curb appeal.

Here is one for your list, and inexpensive as well...

#15: Paint your door red! If your homes features will allow of course.

Great tips!

Good luck & success to you Doretha!
