Enhancing your home’s appearance and boosting its value don’t need to be money-intensive projects. There are plenty of quick and easy ways to improve Fort Myers homes, many of which you can complete in just one day. Whether your home is on the market, or you just would like to spruce it up, here are some quick tips to transform your home into the best looking house on the block.
Freshen up the front door.
This is the first place people look, so keep it neat and tidy. Shake out that welcome mat, or better yet, replace it with a new one. Update your dated or dingy house numbers, and replace the overhead light fixture or entry lamp. Polish the doorknob, wipe down or pressure clean the front door, and keep the front porch area free of debris. Once the area is tidy, add a doorknocker or wreath that expresses your personality.
Light up the walkway.
One way to add curb appeal to Fort Myers real estate is to install low-voltage solar lighting along your front walkway. It lights the way, helps visitors see the path more easily and adds visual interest.
Green up your yard.
Make sure the grass or sod is in good shape. Mow and edge the grass to give it that well manicured look. If you have flowerbeds, pull the weeds and any dead growth, plant some new seasonal flowers and add a fresh layer of mulch.
Look at trees in the front yard, and ensure they are not obstructing the view of the house, or obscuring the best features of the exterior. Pay special attention to tree limbs that are near or touching the home’s roof.
Don’t forget the view at night.
The next time you arrive home at night, look at it from the perspective of prospective homebuyer (even if yours in not one of the houses for sale in Fort Myers!). Make sure lighting that’s visible through front doors and windows enhances the home’s appearance. Would curtains or shutters add to the appeal?
When it comes to Fort Myers real estate, backyard living is a huge part of its appeal. Pressure walk the deck, add some plants in attractive outdoor pots, and remove all the sports equipment and children’s outdoor toys to a storage shed.
Curb appeal is especially important for Myers homes for sale. But, if you brainstorm, you’ll find that you can maximize the best features, and minimize the least attractive aspects of your home. Often there’s a easy solution that let’s you stay within your budget. Typically it doesn’t take more than just a few days to boost the beauty of your home with easy upgrades.
