Improving your home’s appeal

Green Escrow Services | Adding value to home

Whether you’re looking to increase the value of your home before a sale or just interested in sprucing things up a bit, there are a number of relatively easy and inexpensive steps you can take.

  • Improve the curb appeal
    The first thing a potential buyer sees when they pull up to your house is the outside, of course. Start by cleaning and clearing your yard and driveway area. Also consider pressure washing the outside and possibly repainting the front door.
  • Improve the environmental footprint
    Older homes especially tend to be less environmentally friendly which can be both inefficient and costly so updating appliances should be a priority. Of course, residential solar panels should also be considered.
  • Tasteful wall art
    Using art as a starting point for your home’s color palette will really invigorate the inside. Be creative and see where ispiration takes you.

Improve your home’s curb appeal

Adding value to your home isn’t just new kitchen countertops or expensive bathroom remodels. Approving the curb appeal of your home is a great way to make it stand out from the others in your neighborhood.

  • Landscaping: Planting trees, flowering bushes, and improving the lawn is a great way to get prospective buyers excited about your home even before they get out of the car. More expensive projects include adding a wooden deck or patio.
  • Front door upgrade: Modern wood door design or a steel design will instantly improve the look of the front of your house. Steel design doors have the added benefit of providing additional security to your property.
  • Upgrade the garage door: A good garage can certainly add value to a home and by upgrading the garage door you are removing one item from a prospective buyer’s must-do list.
  • Windows upgrade: Replacing windows can be very expensive but certainly go a long way in adding value to your home. Double land or tinted windows will save energy as an additional benefit.
