Spring is here and it's time to boost the curb appeal of your home! Whether you're planning to sell your home or simply want to spruce it up, enhancing the exterior of your home can make a big difference. Here are some simple tips to boost the curb appeal of your house in springtime:

  1. Add Colorful Flowers: Spring is the perfect time to add a pop of color to your front yard. Plant some colorful flowers in your garden beds or in decorative pots near your front door. Choose flowers that are easy to care for and will bloom throughout the season.  Don’t forget about fresh mulch!

  2. Power Wash Your Exterior: Over the winter months, dirt, grime, and debris can build up on the exterior of your home. A quick and easy way to give your home a fresh look is to power wash it. This will remove any dirt or grime and make your home look like new.

  3. Clean Your Windows: Clean windows can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your home. Use a window cleaner and a squeegee to clean your windows and make them sparkle.

  4. Replace or Repaint Your Front Door: Your front door is one of the first things people notice about your home. If your front door is old or outdated, consider repainting or replacing it with a new one. Choose a door and color that complements the style of your home and adds some personality to your front entryway.

  5. Update Your House Numbers: Updating your house numbers is a simple and inexpensive way to add some style to your home's exterior. Choose numbers that are easy to read and complement the style of your home.

Curb appeal is the first thing potential buyers will notice about your home.  In fact, a study done at Michigan State a few years back found that strong curb appeal could increase the perceived value of your home by between 5% and 11%!  So, by following these simple tips, you can boost the curb appeal of your home and make it look its best for spring.  As always, reach out to us with any questions or if you need some suggestions on boosting your own curb appeal!
