Curb appeal will increase instantly after an exterior design update. These five major exterior projects will always add significant value if you wish to increase your property equity.
The first tactile impression guests will have of your home is the front door. You want an entrance that is as elegant as the rest of the property. In addition to visitors, potential buyers will feel more welcomed by a beautiful door.
Not only does a new door add to the aesthetics of your home, but it also improves energy efficiency and security. Replacing an old door with an insulated one will help seal your house to prevent drafts from getting in. A solid door will also ensure that no unwanted guests can break-in.
The Deck/ Patio
Imagine the perfect summer night spent hosting friends. You are all laughing, drinking, and dancing. Where are you?
Chances are you are outside, underneath the stars, enjoying the temperate weather. Decks and patios are magical spaces on your property. Improving your deck or patio adds both monetary and more intangible value to your home. Invest in some comfortable, minimal patio furniture and warm lighting. Add some privacy by installing a chuppah with some curtains. To find inspiration for your deck design, visit the site of roofing services in your area.
When it comes to elegance in landscape design, we think of the gardens of Versailles. For something more modern, we imagine the estate of Brule Marx in Rio de Janeiro. Landscape architecture encompasses art, ecology, and engineering.
With the right design, your home will be transformed into a natural wonderland. We recommend finding a company with a deep understanding of indigenous plantings. Introducing new plants can lead to the spread of invasive species.
According to the National Association of Realtors’ magazine, your home’s value can increase by up to 12% with landscaping. If you plan on selling your property, make sure you only spend about 1% of its current market value on this project.
The first thing that smart real estate investors look at is the roofline of a home. Replacing or repairing your roof is a smart decision. A new roof is guaranteed to improve the curb appeal of your home.
When renovating your roof, you will have the option to change the shingle style. Consider the options available and the variety of Materials for shingles to choose from:
- Slate: traditionally used as an interior material, but can be beautiful on the outside of your home
- Composite Tile: Composite tile is beautiful and protects your home from fire.
- Wood: wood shingles pair well with a traditional home, a farmhouse, or to add a rustic tone.
- Clay Tile: the longest-lasting tiles – There are new solar tiles that look just like clay tiles, but they come in clear blue, they will add a great look, and they are very energy efficient
Imagine the hillsides of Tuscany or the backstreets of Paris. Roofs are some of the most memorable elements of the architecture, our eyes are drawn to them, and a new roof is guaranteed to be a hit for guests or buyers that come to visit.
If you are looking to improve your luxury home’s curbside appeal, you should make sure that these four areas of your property are updated and attractive. The better your house looks on the outside, the more buyers you will attract.
