We are finishing our series of tips for increasing the curb appeal of your house.
Are you looking to sell your house? Spring is the best time to sell your house. One of the things you can do to increase your chances of selling and even add value to your house is to increase your curb appeal. One of the final things you can do to improve your curb appeal is basic maintenance on your property.
Tip #8: Maintenance Is a Must
Nothing looks worse from the curb — and sets off subconscious alarms — like hanging gutters, missing bricks from the front steps, or peeling paint. Not only can these deferred maintenance items damage your home, but they can decrease the value of your house by 10%.
Here are some maintenance chores that will dramatically help the look of your house:
- Refasten sagging gutters.
- Repoint bricks that have lost their mortar.
- Reseal cracked asphalt.
- Straighten shutters.
- Replace cracked windows.
