In this issue– Taking your exterior from beat up to upbeat, we’re talking about this season’s “IT” word: Curb Appeal.
The emergence of the sun and warmer weather is the world’s way of telling us to shake off those winter blues. Dust yourself off, grab your tool box (whether it’s for function or fashion) and get outside– it’s officially home improvement season!
It’s not only your neighbors and friends that will judge your house by its cover—according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), potential homebuyers say that curb appeal is most important when house hunting. And they’re not just talking about a manicured yard and bushels of lively flowers welcoming onlookers.
Nowadays, potential buyers are searching beyond the look of your landscaping and straight at structural issues such as:
- broken windows
- loose gutters
- jammed doors, etc.
In order to really make your home seem warm, inviting and most importantly, safe, it’s those bigger improvements that need your attention whether you plan on selling today or ten years from now.
The good news? Setting pride for your home aside, updating and polishing its exterior can put money (and possibly lots of it!) into your pocket if/when you decide to sell. These types of remodels are on the less expensive end of the spectrum and because they are highly desirable, they can recoup a high percentage when selling.
