HOW DO YOU RATE YOUR HOME’S CURB APPEAL?
How would you rate your home’s curb appeal? Does it have eye-catching charm or is it in need of an update? Here are some tips to freshen up your
home’s exterior whether you’re putting it on the still- hot Phoenix market or just wanting to make some minor upgrades to increase its value.
- The Cleaner the Better
Use a pressure washer to brighten up your home’s exterior. Using a deck brush and cleaning solution will also help get rid of dirt. Be sure to clean
up any debris like fallen branches and leaves, sweep the porch and patio of cobwebs and wipe down outdoor furniture.
- Make It Inviting
Paint the front door a contemporary color or just freshen it up with a new coat. Consider installing a keyless entry doorknob or a Ring video doorbell
for additional security.
- Dress It Up
Get creative with your porch décor—depending on the space, add outdoor furniture or a porch swing, seasonal potted plants and a welcome mat.
- Don’t Forget Your Garage Door
In addition to a fresh coat of paint, consider crafting faux garage door windows by following tutorials on YouTube or adding magnetic handles
available at any home improvement store.
- Shed Some Light
The right lighting can transform a space. Consider small porch lamps or outdoor string lights that match your home’s style. Swap out bulbs in
existing fixtures for brighter, longer-lasting LED ones. You may also consider motion-sensor lights for added security as well as lights to illuminate
your driveway or walkway.
- Create a Lush Oasis
Select low water, low maintenance desert plants or higher maintenance flowers and choose planters that compliment and make the front yard pop!
If you want your flowers to thrive, hang up a hummingbird feeder. These birds spread pollen to help flowers grow more easily.
