Realtors know that increasing your curb appeal can add thousands of dollars to the value of your home and cut the time it takes to sell. But even if you don’t plan on selling anytime soon, sprucing up your property has definite advantages.
The biggest advantage is the awesome feeling you get each and every time you drive up and realize this gorgeously maintained property is all yours! So keep reading for some ideas to boost that curb appeal:
Badly designed or badly maintained landscaping can definitely wreck your curb appeal. The quickest way to spruce up your landscaping is to put any dead, dying, or sad-looking plants and shrubbery out of their misery. This includes the weeds! Once you have that taken care of, it’s time to bring in the new. Make a plan that includes greenery that is suited for your climate and easy to maintain. Also, be sure to consider the full size of the plant when making plans for spacing. Try to mix things up to have a variety of plants that will bloom at different times in the season.
Not only do trees add value and beauty to your property, they also support local ecology. Removing a tree should be a last resort, but we all know there are times when keeping your property safe becomes a bigger priority.
Cracked and damaged walkways and driveways can really detract from the look of a property. Get those repaired first. Then imagine making a statement with the timeless style of pavers leading to the entrance of your home. Or if you have the space, you can compliment your entrance with a relaxing patio designed to greet your neighbors and foster community.
Making your property sparkle can probably add more power to your curb appeal than anything else. In a recent article, we discussed all the ways from siding to driveways that a pressure washer rental can help you acheive spring cleaning success. Check it out!
