Taking simple steps to enhance the curb appeal of your home remodel project can help add to your home’s resale value, attract potential buyers and set your house above the rest of the market. New exterior doors, maintenance of exterior home siding, opening up the front of your home with bay or bow windows, simple landscaping highlights and cleaning gutters can give new life to your curb appeal.

Curb Appeal of the Home Exterior

Having a clean home exterior can do wonders to a home’s value and curb appeal. Regular maintenance of your exterior home siding and trim, a new coat of paint and a quick power wash to your exterior home siding can give your home a spotless shine that will be sure to increase the curb appeal of your home. Even adding a new color can give your home remodel an entirely new personality, adding to home’s curb appeal. Replacing an outdated mailbox, purchasing new house address numbers and keeping up with landscaping and flower beds are some easy ways to bring quick resale value to your home.

The Natural Focal Point: Your Front Door

Often times, the first thing prospective buyers will notice about a house is the front door. Your front door should be the highlight of your home, so be sure to make a statement with your remodel. The front door of any home has been known to take a beating, so be on the lookout for scuffs and scratches and purchase a new exterior day if need be. According to Remodeling.com, installing a new exterior door is the top mid-range project you can add to your home when comparing cost to value. No matter what your choice, remember that the exterior door should set the tone for the rest of your home.

Bay and Bow Windows

Give your home a more welcoming feeling and open up a room by installing a bay or bow window. Many companies offer bay and bow windows in several different styles and sizes to fit your home remodel project needs, giving a room in your house a wider view and adding to its curb appeal.

Fascia, Soffit and Guttering

Regular maintenance and prevention of rot and water damage may not seem like much, but it plays a huge role in your home's resale value. Uncleaned, old or damaged gutters often give homeowners a tell-tale sign that the house has been poorly maintained. Regular maintenance, cleaning or even replacement of gutters can help to avoid more costly damage down the line.

The Impact of Exterior Lighting

Landscape lighting alongside a walkway, a front door or garden area can enhance not only the look of your home but also provide added security and safety. Strategic lighting placement can bring out the best of your landscaping and highlight your improved entryway.
