Spruce Up Your Home on a Budget.

Low-Cost Ways to Spruce Up Your Home's Exterior

Make your home more appealing for yourself and potential buyers with these quick and easy tips:

1. Trim bushes so they don’t block windows or architectural details.

Mow your lawn, and turn on the sprinklers for 30 minutes before the showing to make the lawn sparkle.
Put a pot of bright flowers (or a small evergreen in winter) on your porch.
4. Install new doorknobs on your front door.

Repair any cracks in the driveway.
Edge the grass around walkways and trees.
Keep your garden tools and hoses out of sight.
8. Clear toys from the lawn.

Buy a new mailbox.
Upgrade your outside lighting.
11. Buy a new doormat for the outside of your front door.

Clean your windows, inside and outside.
Polish or replace your house numbers.
Place a seasonal wreath on your door.
Your home is a reflection of you and your family.  The exterior of your home is the first impression Buyer’s have of your home.  If the exterior of your home is in need of repair and maintenance then the Buyer’s will assume the interior is in the same condition.  If  Buyer’s will not come in to look at your home they certainly will not buy.
