Underestimating the importance of curb appeal to the perceived value of a property is a big mistake many homeowners make. Landscaping can add 7-14% to your homes value. Exterior light fixtures when strategically placed can go a long way, they can highlight not only walkways but landscaping too. Upgrading front doors, door hardware, mailboxes and even some cool house numbers can make a difference. Washing the exterior of the property not only looks better but can make the siding last longer. Don’t forget to repair and clean the gutters, nothing says poor maintenance like weeds in the gutters!
