3 Ways To Add Value To The Exterior Of Your Home

As many homebuyers prefer move-in ready properties, an attractive exterior could be the key to selling your home. Even if you're not looking to sell right away, it's a good idea to keep the exterior of your home in decent condition in case you ever do decide to sell. Completing these projects will add value to the exterior of your home without emptying your wallet.

Spruce Up Your Landscaping

First and foremost, keeping your lawn trimmed will maintain a polished appearance, boosting your home's curb appeal. Beyond the basic manicured lawn, plants and flowers can also draw positive attention to your home. Consider adding a flower bed, garden, or potted plant to your outdoor space.

Update The Exterior Elements

The physical structure of your home should be visually appealing. Rent a power washer and clean any dirt, debris, or mold off the siding. If applicable, a fresh coat of paint will make your home look new again.

The exterior doors are a focal point that are often forgotten. A new front door can be an inexpensive way to upgrade the façade of your home.

Add Outdoor Entertainment

While a pool, hot tub or fire pit probably aren't on the average homebuyer's "must-have" list, these items and other forms of outdoor entertainment are an added bonus that could be enough to make potential buyers fall in love with your home.

If you really want to impress buyers looking for exterior amenities, consider installing an outdoor kitchen and/or bathroom. Although not as glamorous as a pool, these elements will add convenience and functionality to your home's outdoor space.

If you need help financing your home improvement projects, the lending experts at IU Credit Union are here to help! Stop by a branch or apply online today.
