Want to sell your property? If so, have you considered its exterior? Often, curb appeal can be equally as important as how a property looks on the inside.
And when you think about it, it’s obvious why. The outside view will influence any potential buyer’s first impression of your house or apartment.
So, perfecting this area could increase the overall value of your home massively. Here are three ways to achieve this.
Garden and Lawn
However big it is, an attractive outdoor space can strengthen the value of a property.
Last year, it was reported that 37 per cent of Britons were spending more time outside in comparison to five years ago. This number has likely grown since. It’s unsurprising, therefore, that UK urban areas have seen a rise in balcony gardens.
If you’re a flat owner, a green exterior can amplify your home’s visual appeal for miles away. With seasonal plants and hanging baskets, you can maintain its effect throughout the year.
Whether you’re a countryside or city dweller, you could improve the value of your abode and develop a valuable new skill at the same time.
Outer Face of Property
How does the exterior of your building appear? Could some parts benefit from new paintwork? Do any of the doors need replacing? If any of the house’s exterior features are run down it may well depreciate its overall value. Luckily, this is easy to overcome. It can also be fun to fix.
If you’re tired of your door, why not change it up with a new colour? Certain shades can affect our mood, therefore, with the right paint choice, you could influence viewers’ perceptions as soon as they approach your home.
Weeds, random tufts of grass and dirty stones rarely look pleasant anywhere – let alone on a driveway. So, why not spend one weekend clearing this space and making it more presentable?
By doing it yourself, you’ll save money. You can enhance your home’s selling potential and protect your finances at the same time.
It may sound obvious, but a smooth parking area could create another value boost for your house. If this surface is far from even, it may be worth sorting this out before it goes on the market.
Enhancing curb appeal needn’t be a scary phase. In fact, with these tips, you can grow your property value and enjoy yourself. This is an opportunity to make the most of your home before you leave it for good. Why not seize it?
