Inspect Your Property
Get a fresh perspective on your property and take a good look at the outside from every angle during the day and at night. You might be surprised to find your fence needs repairs, balls in the yard, or a random dog toy that went missing.

Your Roof And Windows
Be sure to repair any shingles that might be damaged, and give both your roof and windows a thorough cleaning to remove rain streaks and dirt.

Prepare To Get Wet
Porches, sidewalks, driveways, your home’s exterior, and rain gutters should be power washed to bring back color to wood and remove surface oil, grime, and debris.

The Green Feeling Under Your Toes
Lawn maintenance is critical to how your home shows on the outside. Make sure it’s always mowed, remove weeds, leaves, and ant beds. Rule of thumb, stay on top of it so you can always run barefoot and free!

Color It Up
Give your front yard splashes of light with flowers and shrubs of different hues planted in the ground and in decorative pots. Window boxes and entryways are visual points of interest that will stand out with the appropriately placed greenery.

The Yellow Brick Road
Well, maybe not yellow, but it’s good to create a pathway to your front door to make your home look well put together, with ease of entry. Consider using stone or brick and lighting to show the way.

What’s your street number?
The longer you’ve been in your home, the more likely it is that it’s harder to read your house numbers. Upgrade and replace with a design that matches your architecture and is eye-catching too.

You’ve Got Mail
Yes, mailboxes become dated. You can spend less than $200 to get a fresh new look and add an impressionable, subtle hint of style to your roadside view.

The Door To Your Heart
Add a big burst of love to your curb appeal with a stand-out front door. Go bold and bright in color to compliment the home’s exterior. You can even test out colors before you commit through digital apps.

Ready To Stop Traffic
Getting great curb appeal doesn’t have to take a lot of time. In a weekend or a couple of days, you can apply these tips and enjoy the beauty of your home sweet home.
