Low cost changes to increase your home’s kerb appeal

Published in Magazine on 3 June 2021 by our Marketing Team

Whether you are considering putting your property on the market or you are simply looking to increase the aesthetics of your front garden, there are a few low cost tips that can help you increase your home’s kerb appeal.

 
What to consider when upgrading your property’s exterior:
 
1. How much you’re willing to spend
 
Working out a budget will provide you with a clearer understanding as to what projects will be achievable.
 
If there is a limit to how much you want to spend on this area, prioritise the projects that you believe will make the most difference.
 
 
2. What are your main goals?
 
What are you looking to achieve from re-decorating? Are you interested in creating a green space outside your home or are you looking for practical solutions and storage options?
 
Painting your exterior adds 2-5% on your property’s sale value, so if you’re looking to move in the near future, it’s important to know where to focus your attention for the best returns.*
 
 
Have you considered these options?
 
Refresh your front door
 
Your front door is the most noticeable feature when entering a property, so it’s worth considering an upgrade if it’s peeling or looking tired.
 
 
Add your own design accessories
 
Door accessories, stylish house numbers, lights and retro flower pots are all on trend.
 
They are also very simple but effective ways of increasing the aesthetics of your front garden for any guests or prospective homebuyers!
 
 
Clear your garden
 
Last but not least, the lawn plays a key part in your home’s kerb appeal.
 
In fact, 67% of homeowners state that a tidy front garden would improve kerb appeal to them the most.**
