Increase Curb Appeal: Mailboxes, etc.

When you’re thinking of improving the appearance of your home from the street, you might want to start with the fixture that’s closest to the street – your mailbox.  If your mailbox is rusty, faded, or leaning, it can create a poor first impression. Moreover, there are so many styles from which to choose that can really complement the look of your home. Installing a wooden post, antique mailbox, or new mailbox can help increase the curb appeal of your home and may even encourage your neighbors to do the same.

Increase Curb Appeal: The Midas Touch (of Paint)

Nothing can freshen the look of your home’s exterior like a fresh coat of paint in the right places. Your front door, shutters, trim, gutters, pillars, posts, and garage doors are great places to add color or refresh the current one. In fact, painting your front door certain colors can actually increase the value of your home when selling. You can increase the curb appeal and value of your home by doing some exterior painting.

Increase Curb Appeal: Light it Up

Your home’s exterior doesn’t only need to look good in the daytime. Your exterior lighting choices can mean a lot when you want to increase the curb appeal of your home. This includes outdoor sconces, lampposts, landscape spotlights, recessed porch lighting, and more. Having a well lit porch or patio, for example, gives you livable space outside of your home in the evening. It also speaks to how comfortable the inside of the home must be, as well.

Increase Curb Appeal: Raise (the Quality of) Your Garage Door

Believe it or not, a quality garage door can increase the value of your home by as much as 4%. While a coat of paint can make a huge difference, a high-end garage door can add a custom look. This means you and your neighbors will love driving down your street everyday, knowing your decision has made your home nicer to look at and the entire street more valuable.

Increase Curb Appeal: Don’t Do Cracks

Deteriorating concrete on the outside of your house can deteriorate your home’s curb appeal. Cracks in your driveway, sidewalk, steps or porch can decrease the value of your home as well as its appearance. Minor cracks can be patched or sealed, while major cracks or shifting may require more major concrete repair. If you want to increase the curb appeal of your home, taking care of damaged surfaces is a must.
