When it comes to your home remodeling projects, more often than not the interiors reign first and supreme as opposed to your outdoors. However, in this article we’re going to tackle how outdoor remodeling can increase both your curb appeal and real estate value.
First Door Impressions Last
You might think so much of your front door but it actually influences a lot about what outsiders perceive about your home. Whether it’s a simple maintenance procedure or an ultimate door replacement, having it fixed up can have as much 85.6% return on your investment.
A deck added does not only enhance your outdoor living status, it also adds up precious living space to your home. So without spending too much, your home is slightly bigger. Decorate it the right way and you have an entirely new room to add to the number of rooms. Whether as an outdoor living area, an entertainment lounge or an outdoor kitchen, your return on investment is sure to climb up for that one extra room.
By taking care of your outdoors, it tells neighbors and potential buyers that you also take care of your indoors. Now, there’s no need for a highly tailored and manicured lawn and garden. A simple trim on bushes that may have grown a little too wild for your liking, snipping off dead branches and plants, and re-planting some will easily give your home’s exteriors a facelift. Clean your walkway by pressure-washing it and add to the curb appeal. Curb appeal does not stop on your walkway. Make sure to also inspect that paint on your house’s façade and address the chipped up parts.
This might be three small home improvement projects but the returns on your investment are significant. Not only do you get to be a street favorite in terms of house façades, you also get to keep your spending directly back to increasing your real estate value.
