The Little Things That Matter

There are tons of low-cost ways that will brighten the outside of your home but not exactly add value, but could add value to you!

Paint your front door – Stop by your local hardware/paint store and grab yourself a can of primer and paint! Pick up a paint brush, roller, and sand paper to make the process run smoothly! Currently, the trendiest front door color is black, but the color that may add the most value to your home is a slate blue. If you’re making updates to sell your home, buyers were willing to offer an estimated $1.5K more for a home with this color of door! 

Renew your house number – Finding new numbers for your home can make the world of difference. There are so many different style options, you are sure to be wooed! You could take a modern approach with a stainless steel, with sleek edges, or opt for a homier feel with a house number planter, that you can put your favorite flowers and greenery in.

Improve outdoor lighting – Clean off the tarnish, to see those light fixtures shine again! Add some front entrance lighting, garage door lighting, and even some sweet string lights to set a fresh ambiance.

Pressure wash – Pressure washing can make the world of difference! Over time you may not see the dirt build up on your home or driveway since its gradual. After a good pressure wash, you will be shocked!

Replace hardware – Having mismatched and dingy hardware can majorly lack appeal. Updating and making all hardware cohesive will make the exterior of your home more appealing.
