3 Ways You Can Improve The Curb Appeal Of Your Home

Homeowners and renter will both want to make a good first impression when it comes to their home. This is why curb appeal is so important and in fact, sometimes a little competitive. People understand that the curb appeal of a home is the first and last impression that people get of their home so therefore want to make sure it’s the best it can be. However, wanting a good curb appeal and knowing how to achieve are two different matters, It can be really difficult to know which areas to focus on and what is actually going to improve your curb appeal instead of making it tacky, and unappealing.

Have a look below at four ways you can improve the curb appeal of your home:

Pathways And Driveways

If you have pathways and driveways that are viable from the curb then these are most definitely areas that you should be focusing on. Leaving them to get too dirty, full of weeds, chipped, cracked or covered in debris can leaving a messy lasting opinion for other people. Your home could be immaculate inside but if you have messy, untidy paths and drives they will come to the conclusion that is what your home is like. Try thinking about them as your carpets, tiles and wooden flooring and treat them with respect. Keep them clear of debris like leaves, remove weeds and define the edges, repair and cracks and chips before they become a bigger problem and power wash them every now and again. It may seem like a lot of work but if you do one thing every few months it’s not hard to keep on top of.

Windows, Doors, And Roofs

These three areas are vital to the appearance of your home. Having chipped missing tiles can make your home look unkempt and scrappy, it’s important you keep on top of the maintenance and make considerations about replacing your roofing if it’s just had enough. With regards to your windows and doors, it’s important to make sure you are keeping these clean and well maintained, if you’re unable to clean them yourself think about arranging a window cleaner to come once a month, then you only need to clean the inside.

Garden Space

You should really be taking care fo your front garden just as much as your back garden. In fact, making sure this is well maintained with short grass, pruned plants, and tastefully shrubbery is of high importance in order to give off a lasting impression. It’s understandable that if you have a large garden for it to sometimes get out of hand but if you want to keep a good impression in could be a good idea to employ a gardener every few weeks to trim the lawn and cut the shrubs to size. If you don’t want to do this and are still struggling for the time it might be an idea to add in a stoned area instead of grass as it’s much more low maintenance.

Hopefully, these three areas will help you to achieve an improvement in your curb appeal. Do you have any other ways you can improve it? Please share them in the comments section below.

  1. This is for sure all good advice when you’re renting out a property that belongs into the upper-end of the market. It are usually also the properties who’re offering a lower return on your investment and attract more demanding tenants with shorter leasing terms. On the other hand these tenants usually more reliable and care about their credit scores.
    The cheaper rentals in general offer a bigger return but attract very often people with a very ambiguous credibility. This is usually a sellers’s market. You’ll have to sieve through the applications till you find one whom’s background checks out satisfactory. They’re not interested in curbs but in the amount of rent the’ll have to pay in combination with the size and location of the rental.
    For younger landlords I would usually recommend to start renting out in the lower class segment of the market. It’s more intensive but offers a better return on your investment. Once you become of age and have gathered some experience and more capital, you can move up to the more expensive segment of the market. It is lesser stressful but also offers a lower return on your investment.

  2. Stone area is a good way, aesthetic to keep the lawn clean, low maintenance like you said and cutting the time of cleaning. Great tips for exterior:)
