Looking to up the curb appeal of your home? If not, then why are you so late to the party? Curb appeal plays a vital part when selling your home.

Go green

 

The first step in upgrading curb appeal is to tidy up your yard with some new greenery. Try to use plants to accentuate specific parts of your home to make it stand out. Even if you don’t have the time to invest into hard landscaping, just having a single plant in the right area can boost the curb appeal of your home.

Mailbox makeover

 

Bring out your beauty kits, it’s time for a makeover. Swap out that old unattractive mailbox for a new one with an intriguing design. Contrary to popular believe, this is an incredibly easy project that can bring a noticeable change to your curb appeal.

 

Power wash it

You wouldn’t avoid bathing yourself for a few years would you? No. Then why put your house through it? There’s nothing more satisfying than power washing years of dirt away from your home. If you don’t own a power washer you can easily rent one out from a retailers like Home Depot or Lowe's.

 

Replace those old house numbers

 

Nothing is more unattractive than seeing a set of old, broken down house numbers. If you’re looking for a cheap way to boost your curb appeal then look no further. Find a font style that really pops and compliments the colors of your home.
