Curb appeal is important because it is the first impression your home gives on guests and potential buyers. Whether you have just bought one of our high-quality homes or are looking to sell your current one, it is important to keep your home’s curb appeal up to date for optimal aesthetic appeal.

To help provide some insight, your local clay county contractor with A&M Home Builders has listed some useful and inexpensive tips on ways to improve your home’s curb appeal.  

Tip #1: Fresh Mulch

Buying a few bags of mulch to place around the flower beds can help give your home a fresh new look. You can buy bags of mulch for less than $2 per bag, so this is a cheap and easy way to update your curb appeal.

Tip #2: Touch Up Chipped Paint

Your home is expected to have some wear and tear over time. Walk around the exterior of your home and touch up any chipped paint. This will help your home look cleaner and newer, which will appeal to more buyers.

Tip #3: Add Planters

Now that the spring season is officially here, there are countless beautiful flowers blooming everywhere. Head to your local nursery and pick up some potted plants to place around your front door. This will help make your home look more lively and colorful.

If you just moved to the area, contact your local clay county contractor to see where the closest plant nursery is.

Tip #4: Blow Off Your Roof

If you have a home viewing scheduled, make sure to blow off any and all debris off your roof to give it a cleaner look. While you’re up there, also take the time to clean out your gutters to limit any unnecessary wreckage landing in your yard.

Tip #5: Add lighting

It’s common for buyers to drive by a home they’re interested in during the evening to see what the house looks like at night. So, to help improve your curb appeal, add some lighting in your yard to highlight some of your home’s top features. If you have a gorgeous tree out front, head up to Home Depot and purchase a landscape LED light to help accent it in the yard.
