Sellers – A curbside “facelift” is money well-spent, whether prepping to sell your house, increasing its equity-value, or just for your own pleasure.
Re-paint the Front Door
REALTORS® have long advised that the front door—one of the first things a visitor touches—should look well-kept and attractive. The cheapest option is to repaint it. No longer feel bound to match your door to the window and shutter hue. Contrast is good, and some homes benefit from brighter colors.
Light the Way
Cleaning globes and replacing bulbs instantly brings new life to your evening facade. New fixtures are inexpensive and can usually be owner-installed. You will likely be delighted—no pun intended—to discover that advanced lighting technology has gone beyond florescent with the introduction of LED bulbs.
Install Stone Veneer
Major transformation from common appearance to a luxury look is achieved with stone veneer. Once installed, stone veneer is nearly indistinguishable from full stonework. The key difference is cost and ease of installation. You will be pleasantly surprised at how it sets your home apart from others on your street while increasing its value and marketability.
Refinish Driveways and Sidewalks
If your property’s asphalt or concrete drive is in good condition, bordering it with brick pavers can add a touch of class. Trims can be a do-it-yourself project requiring minimal skill, effort and cost.
Add Color to Landscape
Green is great, but dots of color lift your yard to a higher level of beauty.
