Enhance Your Home’s Curb Appeal


Idyllic Home With Covered Porch

 

Although we’ve been told to do otherwise, people often judge homes based on curb appeal. Enhance your home’s exterior with these five tips.

 

Front Door

Wash your front door and polish hardware — replace if necessary. If the sun has faded the paint or you want a change, consider repainting with a bold new color that brings you joy.

 

Windows & Gutters

Remove debris from gutters and drain spouts before cleaning. Wash and repair windows or hire a professional. Clean or replace window treatments inside your home that are visible from the outside.

 

Landscaping

Mow, fertilize and water your lawn. Tidy up gardens; remove dead plants and branches; plant colorful flowers along any path or walkway; and add potted plants by the entry.

 

Porch

Sweep the porch; clear cobwebs from fixtures, railings and corners. Store toys, yard equipment and garbage cans. Clean patio furniture or consider updating worn pieces; add a swing or seating if space allows.

 

Exterior Touches

Check for missing or damaged shingles. Power wash and repair walkways and driveway. Clean or update light fixtures. Repaint shutters; repair, paint or replace mailbox. Check that house numbers are visible from the street; replace if needed.

3 Must-Have Home Amenities


modern kitchen

 

Some amenities that homebuyers once considered “nice-to-have” are moving into the “must-have” category. Below are three that experts say have grown in demand among home shoppers:

 

Smart Homes

More and more homes can be controlled via smart phone or tablet. Appliances and home systems can be turned on, off, or programmed via mobile devices. Some smart refrigerators have built-in apps that can create grocery shopping lists and smart ovens can be remotely controlled to start dinner or check on the status of what’s cooking.

 

Stainless-Steel Alternatives

Stainless-steel appliances have long dominated but some homebuyers are seeking alternatives. White ice and slate are increasingly growing as options to stainless-steel. Slate is being touted as an easy choice to blend in with other black, white or stainless-steel finishes. It can resist fingerprints and washes easily, too.

 

Energy Efficiency

Many homebuyers place a premium on finding a home with energy-efficient, cost-effective appliances. Energy Star-qualified appliances use 10 to 50 percent less energy than their older counterparts. Also gaining popularity are smarter appliances, including dishwashers with sensors that can determine the appropriate cycle length and water temperature and washers that can extract more water from laundry during the spin cycle so the dryer has less drying to do.
