How to Create Curb Appeal on a Budget

The first impression of a home lasts and it starts way before the potential buyer even sets foot in the house.


The way your house looks on the outside can be a massive indicator to the potential buyer on how the home inside looks.


As you can tell by the title, curb appeal is critical when getting your home ready on the market! There are dozens of small, inexpensive home improvements that you can do to add to your homes curb appeal.


Here are the benefits of creating it:

  • Makes your home easier to sell

  • Finished look

  • Appealing to you and the buyer



Here are four ways to add curb appeal on a budget:


1. Paint your door.


Most exterior paint will cost you approximately $30 a gallon. Painting your front door can add brightness and revive your house. We recommend staying the neutral route, but you can choose a bold color as well to make your home stick out.


Pro Tip: Match the color to the rest of the colors on your house!


2. Add a Cute Doormat


Buy a cheerful doormat that says "Welcome" or "Hello". What better way to greet guests, while also keeping the dirt where it belongs!


3. Upgrade your mailbox


If you have a mailbox on the road, replacing an outdated box can add instant curb appeal. You can find a new mailbox starting around $20. Make sure that you are following the regulations that are set forth in the city that you live in!



4. Add Some Greenery


Planting a tree or some flowers is one of the most common (and easiest) ways to add curb appeal to your house.


These are just some of the ways you can add curb appeal on a budget to your home! Make sure to tell us what your favorite tip was in the comments below!
