Whether you are trying to sell your home or add new life to your forever home, there are quite a few ways to improve curb appeal and add value. Improving curb appeal can improve the first impression of the house, while internal improvements can make your home more comfortable, efficient, and valuable.
3 Ways to Improve Curb Appeal
1. Fresh Paint
A fresh coat of paint is a simple but highly effective step to improve curb appeal. If planned properly, the color scheme gives a house its distinct personality. Paint can make a home look newer and much more inviting. Even a small pop of color on the front door, shutters, or trim can add vibrancy to the house and create a new look.
Your front yard is a great way to add color and life to a home. Landscaping can complement the color scheme of a house or take on a theme of its own. Investing in drought-tolerant plants allows you to save money on maintenance while still keeping up your curb appeal.
3. Upgrade Walkways and Driveways
Walkways and driveways take up more space in front of a house than you might think. The typical, gray concrete option is standard, but you can do better. By replacing your concrete with a beautiful brick or stone mosaic, you can add color and enhance the overall theme of your front yard.
3 Ways to Add Value to Your Home
4. Cleaning the AC / Heater Unit
Maintaining your AC and heater units helps them function properly and last longer. A properly functioning system can be invaluable in areas where climate fluctuates rapidly. A replacement may be necessary for some units, but upkeeping a new unit can easily be achieved with scheduled maintenance checks.
5. Upgrading the Water Heater
An upgrade to your water heater can help save you money and add value to your home. A water heater needs to work efficiently, not just correctly. Water heaters with bad energy efficiency or improper installation can cost you extra money in the long-run. Upgrading to a tankless water heater can also save money and space, and is much more environmentally friendly.
6. Investing in Smart Improvements
Technology is continuously evolving, and this is also true within the home improvement industry. Smart improvements can help you to monitor and manage your home more efficiently and conveniently. Systems such as doorbell monitors and remote home management can make even an old house seem more modern and technologically advanced.
