Dollarphotoclub_2619607-270129-editedIf you have decided to sell your house, you are likely looking for home improvement projects that can increase your property's value, while increasing the appeal to potential buyers. While an interior home remodeling project is a beneficial idea, improving your home's curb appeal is equally important.

Many homebuyers drive by potential homes before they actually attend an open house or go inside with a realtor. If your house lacks curb appeal, you could be repelling potential buyers before they even step through your front door! To remedy this, make sure you follow these five tips.

Door Replacement

Front doors become scratched, kicked, and beaten up over time, causing them to crack and deteriorate. There is a chance you may not even notice the damages anymore, but potential homebuyers will. Choose a front door that matches the personality of your house. Your ct entry door should give prospective buyers an idea of what lies within.

Replace Siding

When you upgrade your siding, you are essentially giving it an instant facelift, making it look fresh, clean and well cared for. This is especially important if your siding is an ugly color, or if it is cracked or falling apart. When potential buyers see a home with poor siding, they may assume that the homeowners have slacked on other important maintenance issues.

New Roof

Knowing how expensive a new roof can be, rotting or curled shingles will send most smart buyers running in the other direction. A new roof for your home can be expensive, but remember this: you can quickly recover the money by increasing the price of the house when you have finished the project. Do not forget to coordinate the colors to match, if you are replacing the siding at the same time.

Make A Walkway

A walkway can be practical while maintaining several aesthetic applications. Walkways prevent visitors from trampling the lawn, and can be very important if your front entry door is not easily visible from the street. To appear sophisticated, pave the walkway with flagstones, and line it with flowers that will add a touch of elegance.

Porch Upgrade

Porches are are a rare commodity in Connecticut, but they often remind people of relaxation and good times spent happily conversing with friends. When a buyer looks at  a well constructed porch, he or she romanticizes about what could be, if they were to move into the house. Take a long look at your own porch: does it need to repainted or repaired? A good porch in Connecticut is a rarity, but it speaks of lazy afternoons and happy conversations with friends.

After you have spent time and allocated your resources towards tackling the curb appeal aspect of your home improvement project, you can move on to more extensive home remodeling projects. With a little hard work, you could be selling your home in no time!
