  • Opening Intro -

    As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and that goes for your home as well.

    Whether you are thinking about putting your home on the market, or just want to make it more inviting, sprucing up the front exterior is a sure-fire way to get your property noticed.


Here are some simple steps for adding a bit more curb appeal to your home and not spending a lot.

  • Mailbox Facelift

    An old and beat up mailbox is a huge eyesore. While a new one won’t set you back all that much, a simple coat of paint can spruce up your old mailbox for just a few dollars. Paint it to match some part of the exterior of your home, such as the front door.

  • Spruce Up the Walk

    Your walkway is what invites potential buyers and visitors into your home, so if the walkway looks dirty and has weeds popping up everywhere, get out the herbicide and give it a good scrubbing or power washing. If you have cracked or sloping sidewalks, it could be worth a little extra money to get it fixed.

  • Landscaping

    Just a couple of small and inexpensive trees or shrubs will liven up your front yard. However, before you go digging, contact the city to mark out any hidden cables, water, or gas lines. If you already have shrubs, take some time to trim the hedges.

  • Lawn Care

    While it should go without saying, basic lawn care will significantly add curb appeal to your home. Plant grass seed in bare or thinning areas and provide adequate water. Edged the walkways and the driveway to give both a nice manicured look.

  • Install a New Garage Door

    If you garage door has seen better days, having scratches and dents from being hit with balls, bats, bikes, and maybe even the car, you may want to consider having a new door installed. Luckily places like J & D Door Sales Inc. can help get the work done quickly so it doesn’t become a long involved project for you.

  • Front Porch Makeover

    If there is room, a cozy little conversation area on your front porch can set the mood for the entire home, and will also provide the illusion of having more square footage. Even the smallest porch typically has room for a couple of chairs and a small table.

All things considered, adding a little more curb appeal to your home is one of the simplest things you can do to increase its attractiveness. The hardest part of the job may just be finding the time to make it happen.
