curb appealBoosting curb appeal is one of the most common reasons that homeowners undertake new projects in their homes. The real question is which projects will earn you the highest returns for the time and money that you put into them. Here are a few budget-friendly ways to boost your curb appeal in no time.

Add Front Door Trim

In most cases, you probably don’t pay much attention to the front door of your house, but adding a big block of trim over your front door can make a bold impression on buyers. Make sure to paint your front door to match the trim and you will have achieved a major visual effect. It makes your entryway look grander, and draws people in.

Add Shutters or Window Trim

Buyers look at your windows to get a feel for how open and well-lit your house will be. If you want to draw attention to your windows, consider adding colored trim or shutters that will stand out. You can also add flower boxes or other decorative elements that will enhance the look of your windows from the street.

Fix Your Front Porch Railing

Nothing stands out worse than a rickety front porch railing. Clean up the look of your porch instantly by fixing any broken boards and anything else that may look a little off. It should all be safe and secure when a buyer comes looking at your house. With these three tips, you can drastically change the exterior of your home with only a few hundred dollars altogether and an afternoon.
