Curb Appeal Upgrades That Can Add Value

 
As a homeowner, you shouldn’t ignore curb appeal.
 
Keep it in great condition, and you’ll likely see high property values and serious marketability when it comes time to sell. Let it slide, and the opposite could happen.
 
Even if you’re not planning to sell anytime soon, refreshing your home’s exterior can add value or give you a head start if you choose to sell later.
 
It just takes a little effort and a touch of creativity.
 
Here are four ways to up your curb appeal:
 

Plant a garden.


A pop of color goes a long way, so plant a few flowers or a flowering bush in front of your home. Opt for perennials, which can last more than two years.
 

Upgrade your mailbox.


Forget the standard old mailbox that came with the house. Try a brick model — or revamp your existing one with a fresh coat of paint or a new post.
 

Make your front porch more inviting.


If you’re looking for an easy project with a big impact, add some charm to your porch. Get some potted or hanging plants, a brand-new welcome mat and a couple of cozy chairs.
 

Freshen up your door.


Give it a new coat of paint, add some new fixtures and a kickplate, and maybe update your address numbers, too. They might seem like small fixes, but they can make a big difference in your home’s overall appearance.
 
Curb appeal matters — especially if you’re considering selling your home soon.
