3 Curb Appeal Tips to Add Value to Your Home, Chillicothe, Ohio

Curb appeal has a significant impact on real estate value. Before you list a home for sale, making some simple changes to the front yard and facade can go a long way in enhancing its desirability to buyers. Here are a few changes to try.

Ways to Boost Real Estate Curb Appeal

1. Mulch

Mulching promotes healthy growth for plants and keeps weed growth down. It tidies flower beds and provides an even background for colors to pop against. Try a dark, espresso-colored mulch that contrasts nicely with the front lawn. Add a layer about two inches thick over the soil, and check that the mulching material doesn’t come into direct contact with the base of any plants.

2. Power Wash

real estateDirt, pollen, and general grime build up on the front of your home, the driveway, and the walkways. Rent a power washer or hire a landscaper to power wash these surfaces. In a matter of minutes, this forceful stream of water can wash away years of dirt accumulation and make a home look like new.

3. Refresh the Entry

The entryway welcomes people into your home and should be the focal point that buyers first notice when they pull up. Refresh the entrance by repainting the front door, replacing the hardware with a modern knob, and adding a pair of potted plants on either side of the porch. Simple touches here make a big impact on the perceived value of your real estate.
