Top 7 Ways to Enhance Home Curb Appeal


The outside of the home is the first thing potential buyers see, so a great first impression is a must. HGTV’s identifies the top 7 ways to boost curb appeal and lure buyers.

#7 Restore the Roof: repair missing and broken shingles to improve the home’s look and to avoid water damage.

#6: Address driveways and walkways: pull weeds and repair cracks to create a good first impression for buyers.

#5: ‘Home’ in on details: sometimes enhancing curb appeal is as easy as installing a new mailbox, house numbers or door hardware.

#4: Focus on the front door: a new door can help to create a grand entrance for the home.

#3: Light it up.: outdoor, decorative lighting can enhance the home’s curb appeal while also providing safety and security.

#2: Refresh with paint: consider other homes in the neighborhood and choose a paint color that is both fresh and appropriate.

#1: Clean and declutter: “Stage” the home’s exterior by ridding the lawn and porch of clutter like kids’ toys, lawn tools and excessive decorations.
