Many homeowners often are so focused on the decor and the interior appeal of their home that they overlook the curb appeal (appearance) of the exterior.  The outside condition of the house is where a good or poor first impression is made.  Once that impression is given it’s not soon forgotten.  By making simple cosmetic changes to the overall visual appearance of the home’s exterior and landscaping, you not only make a better first impression, but you also improve it’s value.

Pride of ownership shows when attention is paid to the home’s outside condition.  Here are some tips for increasing your home’s curb appeal:

  • A fresh coat of paint on the body and trim of the house
  • Clean the windows
  • Power-wash the driveway and walks
  • Prune and trim shrubs
  • Keep the lawn well manicured
  • Get rid of clutter
  • Plant mature flowers around the base of trees and beds
  • Consider window boxes with flowers to add depth
  • Inexpensive vinyl shutters will add dimension to the windows
  • Patch cracks in the driveway and sidewalks

For you who are planning on selling your home, what you do to improve the outside appearance will make it much more inviting to a prospective buyer.  The investment of time and money on the home’s exterior will give you a great return and will  improve it’s curb appeal and overall value.
