Curb Appeal – Increasing your property value

February 28, 2010 at 11:26 pm Leave a comment

What is the first impression of a home – the exterior! When we think about increasing the value of our homes, homeowners usually think of the inside first. CURB APPEAL is the most important factor to increasing the value of your home! Even before a visitor or potential buyer arrives at your door they will view the outside of your home – the windows, doors, steps or walkway and of course, your landscaping.

Things to consider when planning your Outdoor Space: What is your budget? How long have you lived here? How long do you plan to stay? How do you currently enjoy your property, and how would you want to enjoy it? Would you naturalize your property? This includes removing your lawn and creating a low maintenance garden that would minimize your environmental footprint by using less water, emissions and time.

Whether you are planning to sell your home or not, it is well worth the investment to ensure your front entrance is warm, clean, and inviting! Upgrading your property can be done in stages or all at one time, from April through to November.

The trend of taking the indoors out is growing and this allows homeowners to take advantage of outdoor enjoyment in comfort and style.
