Does Curb Appeal Add Value To Your Home?

Are you aware of the potential value locked away in the outward appearance of your home?

As recent statistics from The Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics suggest, focusing on your home’s curb appeal can raise its property value by up to 7%! A welcoming, well-kept exterior not only appeals to potential home buyers, it also provides a sense of pride for homeowners and can add tangible benefits for businesses.

Why Should You Consider Improving Your Home’s Curb Appeal?
– Property value increase: Good curb appeal can boost your home’s value by up to 7%.
– Faster selling time: A clean, attractive exterior is often the first thing buyers consider when evaluating a home.
– Personal satisfaction: Keeping your home’s exterior neat and charming can deliver a sense of pride and joy.
– Increase in business: For commercial properties, great curb appeal can drive sales and make a lasting impression on customers… WEBSITE

Boosting Curb Appeal: Pre-Listing Must-Dos

Welcome to our deep dive into the world of curb appeal, the secret sauce to making your home stand out in the bustling real estate market. Whether you’re thinking of selling soon or just want to give your home a facelift, enhancing your property’s curb appeal can make all the difference. It’s not just about making a good first impression; it’s about creating a lasting one that can significantly impact your home’s perceived value and selling price. So, let’s roll up our sleeves and explore the must-dos before listing your home, backed by compelling statistics and actionable advice.

Understanding Curb Appeal’s Impact

The Psychology Behind First Impressions

It’s no secret that first impressions are powerful. When potential buyers pull up to a property, their initial feelings play a crucial role in their decision-making process. A well-maintained exterior suggests that the home is also cared for on the inside, making it more appealing and reducing the time it spends on the market.

Quantifying Curb Appeal’s Value

But don’t just take our word for it. Studies have shown that homes with high curb appeal tend to sell for 7-14% more compared to less appealing properties in the same neighborhood. This statistic alone underscores the tangible benefits of sprucing up your home’s exterior before listing it. For more information on how curb appeal affects home values.


15 Easy Ways to Achieve High-End Curb Appeal on a Budget

A full-blown exterior remodel isn’t the only way to reinvigorate the outside of your home. Simple, budget-friendly upgrades can boost curb appeal quickly—without draining your wallet. This weekend, choose a few of these easy projects, such as painting the front door or tending to the landscaping, to give your home a high-end look without the hefty price tag.

Plant Long-Lasting Landscaping

It’s possible to have a landscape that makes passersby look twice while sticking to a budget. The key is picking plants that last for a long time without much upkeep, such as peonies, hostas, and irises. Begin with a few varieties, then grow your collection by dividing perennials and exchanging with friends and neighbors.

Create a Place to Rest

Attractive outdoor seating can add major curb appeal to a porch or garden for only a minimal investment. Look for something simple and eye-catching, such as a pair of outdoor chairs found on Facebook Marketplace or a repurposed wooden bench. Add color with cushions and bright pillows in durable, weather-resistant fabrics.

Update Your House Numbers

House numbers serve a functional role, but they’re also an opportunity to inject personality. Choose numbers in a fun style, then hang them on a planter, wall-mounted plaque, mailbox post, or anywhere else you’d like to add character. Make sure the house numbers are visible from the street (even at night) so guests can easily find your address. READ  MORE
