Ways To Spruce Up the Outside of Your Home ♥

If you’ve been living in your home for a while and have decided it’s time to move on to greener pastures; you may have neglected certain areas or failed to realise that there are things you can do to improve it.

Or, perhaps you’re just fed up of sighing every time you unload the car after a supermarket shop and wishing for a more appealing exterior to your property.

If you are trying to sell, as soon as that for sale sign is outside your home; you’re actively trying to look as appealing as possible to the target market. Therefore, your first port of call needs to be the exterior of your house, with a focus on its curb appeal to potential buyers

You don’t want to fall at the first hurdle and put people off with an unsightly exterior; that would be a waste of your time and effort on the rest of your home. Focusing on the outside of your home will also be a wise investment, if you plan to remain in your property for some years ahead. It’s a win-win.

The following are some ideas, tips, and advice for those who need a helping hand in getting the outside area of their home in tip-top condition so that it look appealing to both potential buyers, you and your family - and not forgetting,Santa Claus in just five short weeks!

Enliven A Tired Space
Getting rid of tired and peeling paint and giving your house a fresh coat will give it an instant boost to its curb appeal. Whether you’re a DIY expert, or you hire a little help for those top of the ladder jobs; your home will always benefit from a shiny new exterior, and it’ll be an appealing aspect for buyers.

Inspect your fences (we just painted and fixed ours this summer), window and door frames and any brickwork surrounding your home. It’s time to fix, repair, and replace areas that make your house look old and tired.

Making sure that your roof is in tip-top condition will not only give your house aesthetic appeal, but, you’ll be preventing an array of problems in the interior of your home. Check out reputable companies like PH Roofing to see how that can fix, repair, and improve the hat to your property (and give santa somewhere safe to land!).

Clean-Up A Unkempt Environment
Now that you’ve invested your time and effort into the renovation projects to the exterior of your home and garden; you’ll need to ensure that all of the building junk and any residual trash is cleared away.

You’ll need any waste out of site and taken to the dump as soon as possible so that potential buyers never see your curbside in a mess or disarray. A tidy environment is always appealing, so make sure you’re not neglecting those last minute jobs and employ help when needed.

The little jobs can make all the difference, so prune those hedges, cut the grass and perhaps you could add some pot plants and foliage to the driveway space to give the place a bit of colour too. Hanging baskets are also a lovely way to brighten up the outside of a house.

A lush green, tidy and trash-free sight should greet people as they pull up outside, so roll those sleeves up and get going on the curb appeal x-factor. Sweep up those autumn leaves and clean your driveway  and do all you can to make your home as welcoming as possible; think about what you’d like to see as you arrive home and start from there.
