Affordable Ways to Improve Curb Appeal


Blog by Lynn Chamberlain | January 13th, 2011


Let’s face it. If you’re selling your home, you probably don’t have the time or budget to do a complete landscaping project. Luckily, you don’t necessarily need to. There are a number of affordable ways to improve curb appeal and, thereby, impress buyers who drive up to your home.

You can create a more welcoming entrance, for example, by painting the front door and frame, and by placing potted plants on either side. In addition to mowing the lawn, pruning trees and shrubs can significantly improve the look of your home. 

Cleaning the walkways and driveway – with a rented power washer, if necessary – can make them look almost new.

And don’t forget the front windows. Make sure window coverings and other decorations look just as good from the outside as they do inside.
