Tips to Boost Curb Appeal and increase your home value
Posted on Jul 4th, 2017
5 Ways to Boost Curb Appeal
 
Take Care of the Landscaping
Curb appeal starts with quality landscaping that enhances the style of your home. Landscaping doesn't have to be expensive; only well-thought-out, interesting, and cohesive. Pick a theme for plantings (native, tropical) and stick with it.
 
Upgrade the Front Door
A new front door instantly enhances your home's appearance, and what's more, it can greatly increase resale value. A recent study by door manufacturer Therma-Tru found that upgrading the front door of a house increased the perceived value of a $190,000 home by almost $8,000. Estimates for new entry doors start around $2,500, so you could actually make back triple the money you spend.
 
Install Outdoor Lighting
Properly planned and installed outdoor lighting can add safety, drama, and interest to your home. Path lighting should also be an integral part of your outdoor lighting plan.
 
Update Your Hardware
Get new house numbers and a door latch with the same finish to give your exterior a cohesive, stylish look.
 
Replace / Paint Old Siding 
Refresh your home's exterior with new siding. The most affordable option is vinyl siding. Once a bland material compared to wood, vinyl siding is now available in a wide variety of colors and styles (including scalloped and square-cut shingles), so you're likely to find something that suits both your taste and your budget.  Painting exterior aluminum siding -Strong and durable aluminum siding can last 40 years or more according to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, but may require painting every five to 10 years. One benefit to aluminum is that it takes paint relatively well, making it fairly easy to maintain or even change the color of your home.  Change of color REQUIRES Brookston Place Architectural Approval.
