When you’re trying to sell your home – or just give it a fresher look – you’ll quickly find out there are literally dozens of things you can do to improve its “curb appeal.”
Some of these are easy and simple, like planting new grass or clearing away old bushes and leaves. Things like landscaping will only take you so far, though, and eventually you might find yourself looking for things you can do to make your house more attractive to neighbors and buyers that don’t involve breaking the bank.
New Windows for America has just the answers you’re looking for. Below, you’ll find three great – and relatively inexpensive – ways you can improve your home’s curb appeal this spring almost instantly:
Replace the Windows
Although most homebuyers wouldn’t name the windows in a house as the first thing they notice, glass that is old, cracked, or dingy certainly makes a strong impression… and not a good one.
New windows, on the other hand, make a home seem brighter and more cheerful. Plus, installing energy-efficient windows can be a huge selling point, especially around the Front Range where temperatures can swing pretty strongly in both directions. Everyone likes to save money on utilities, especially new homebuyers.
Install a New Front Door
Is your front door inviting? Does it seem safe? Is it letting lots of hot or cold air outside and raising energy bills?
These are the kinds of questions people ask themselves when they see your home, and especially when it comes to deciding what a property is worth. And it’s important to note that the style and condition of your front door are going to factor heavily into the first impression someone gets when they visit your house. Front doors are visible from the street and tend to be the first part of a home someone actually interacts with.
Get New Siding Installed
Siding that’s worn, chipped, or aesthetically displeasing can scare buyers and visitors away before they ever even see the inside of your home. Strong curb appeal is really about first (and often instant) impressions, so it’s important that your home’s siding indicates that the property is well maintained and in good shape.
Any of these three improvements – or better yet, all of them together – could go a long way toward making a stronger first impression with your home. Best of all, the changes aren’t just cosmetic; replacing windows, doors, and siding is a great way to make your home safer, more energy-efficient, and valuable as a piece of real estate.
