Make Your Home the Talk of the Block

The outside of your home sets the expectation (either good or bad) of what it's like inside. If you are selling, curb appeal can be the difference between a potential buyer wanting to see the inside of your home or deciding that it's not worth the effort. Not selling? You still want to pay attention to your home's curb appeal. The look of your home (and the attractiveness of your neighborhood overall) helps to maintain the value for everyone.

Let's start with the yard. If you don't already, make it a plan to maintain your lawn; keeping your grass neatly trimmed, healthy, and free of weeds is a small time investment that absolutely pays off. To add more character to the yard, consider adding landscaping elements such as a wicker seating area, grouped shrubs or plantings, and perhaps even a tree if space allows.

Paving is also a great way to give your home its own unique style. Emphasize the pathways that approaching guests use to get to your front door with natural stone pavers or concrete. You can also add exterior lighting along those pathways for the dual purpose of keeping your guests safe as well as making your yard pop at night.

And of course, one of the biggest statements your house can make is with your front door. Make sure that your door matches the style of your home, and is itself well-maintained from the paint all the way to the door handles and hinges. In addition, make sure that your street facing windows are clean and well maintained and match the style of your house and front door. Is your roof in good shape and free of mold? Check your house's siding; is it loose or dirty?

Whether you are preparing to sell or planning to stay in your home for years to come, ensuring your home has great curb appeal will always pay off. And now that warmer weather is here, this is your chance to spend some time focusing on your home's first impression.
