You need to remodel your entire home to improve its curb appeal—but you do need to do what you can to make it as appealing as possible so potential buyers feel drawn to it and want to see what’s inside.
3 Simple Ways to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Before you make any improvements to your home’s exterior, make sure the yard is clean and that your home’s façade is in good repair. Pull the weeds, mow the lawn, and put away stray toys; straighten out your picnic area or your porch seating, as well.
Curb Appeal Tip #1: Spruce Up Your Front Door
Most experts don’t recommend buying a new front door—it’s often an investment that doesn’t pay off when you sell. However, you can repaint it, replace hardware and house numbers, and add a simple wreath to make it look more inviting.
Curb Appeal Tip #2: Create Symmetry on Your Porch
Symmetrical light fixtures may cost too much to install, but you can balance out your porch’s look with a pair of plants and a centered welcome mat. If your porch is asymmetrical, experiment with spacing; place two rockers on one side and live plants on the other.
Curb Appeal Tip #3: Replace Gutters and Downspouts
Older gutter systems tend to bake in the heat of the Arizona sun, so if yours look like they’ve seen better days, it may be time to replace them. New vinyl gutters are typically cost-effective and simple to install (many of them have snap-in edges, and they don’t even need to be painted).
The Keys to Successful Curb Appeal
Before you can pull off any improvements, the house needs to be clean and in good repair. If you can, make time to:
- Repair cracks in sidewalks and driveways
- Add seasonal potted plants in your yard (you can create an instant, low-maintenance garden that looks beautiful and shows buyers you’ve cared about the way your home looks)
- Repaint your home’s exterior or replace worn, damaged siding
