What to do about Poor Curb Appeal

New Construction Exterior

Curb appeal is very important. This is true no matter if you are selling your home, or plan on living there for many more years to come. When somebody pulls up in front of your home you want them to be blown away in a good way.

If your home has poor curb appeal you can change this by following the steps below:

1. What don’t you like? If you are having a hard time pinpointing the problem, get in your car and pull up in front of your home as if you are a visitor. What do you like? What don’t you like? This should lead you to the problems you are facing.

2. Find a solution. It is one thing to find the problem, but from there you need to immediately get started on the answer. For instance, laying sod may be all you need to take your yard from dirty mess to golf course appeal. Some people find that taking things away, such as too many accessories, can really make their home look better on the outside.

3. Hire a professional. Once you know what the problem is you need to decide if you can handle it on your own. If not, don’t be afraid to hire a professional. This costs money, but in the long run it will get you the desired result in a short period of time.

No matter how good the inside of your home looks, poor curb appeal can drag down its value.
