Increase the Value of Your Home in 3 Easy Ways

Like it or not, we all know that the way our home looks from the outside is how others judge it. If you'd like to make a better first impression, consider these simple improvements:

The Yard

A little bit of work can transform a ho-hum yard into a breathtaking view. If you have flowerbeds, create a crisp border by weeding and pulling stray vines. If your flowerbed isn’t in full bloom yet, add some potted flowers for more color. Trim trees and bushes to promote healthy growth and keep it neat. It is important to trim trees at the right time during their growing cycle. Surrounding trees and bushes with mulch is an instant way to add curb appeal.

The Roof

Small roof repairs can extend the life of a roof or make it look younger than it is. Replacing a few curled, missing, or faded shingles is cost effective and will make a big difference in the appearance of your roof. Older roofs can benefit from cleaning to remove algae, dirt, and moss. Cleaning a roof can be a dangerous job and is best left to professionals.

The Mailbox

Even something as simple as a new mailbox can add to your home’s curb appeal. A mailbox can be more than a utilitarian item. Choose a style that complements your home’s exterior style. Perhaps an antique or boldly painted mailbox would best fit your home’s personality.

Improving the look of your property doesn’t have to be expensive or limited to the options above. Once you begin, you'll discover new and easy ways to continue improving your curb appeal.
