There are a handful of simple ways to amplify your home’s value in anticipation of a sale. Small landscaping upgrades, a splash of color or even a new set of address numbers can all increase your home’s curb appeal. Here are three upgrades simple enough to perform yourself, and creative enough to give your home a considerable boost in allure.
Plant a Tree
An easy way to increase your garden or yard’s appeal is to plant a tree that blooms, bears fruit, or turns a dazzling shade of red or orange in the fall months. Consult with a gardening pro to find the tree best suited to your outdoor space.
Paint Your Door
It’s such a simple tool in increasing your home’s marketability, but surprisingly, a newly painted door in a popular shade of classic red or even a trendy shade of green, blue, or yellow will make your whole house appear younger and more exciting.
Source native plants for your garden beds. These plants are all but guaranteed to flourish, leaving your home with the type of charming outdoor areas that make Portland so appealing to millennial buyers. Consult with a gardening professional to choose plants that will impart color, texture, and charisma to your yard and watch your value increase as the flowers bloom.
