Giving the exterior of your home a facelift may seem like a big project, but it doesn’t have to be. And if you’re planning on selling, an exterior refresh is a must. It’s all about the old saying – you never get a second chance to make a first impression. What potential buyers see on the exterior of your home can draw them in – or push them away. So the very first thing you should do when updating your exterior is simply give it a good cleaning. Grab a hose – or a pressure washer for stuck-on muck – and give your home a wash. Once it’s sparkling, assess if there are any pieces of damaged siding or shingles that need to be replaced. Next, repaint the front door. Choose a colour that highlights your siding while also adding a bit of a wow factor. Red is always classic, but if you prefer neutral, a black or grey door are both modern and timeless. Last up, add some greenery in your flowerbeds or planters. If it’s winter, put out an evergreen in a pretty pot – or add a simple wreath to say, “Welcome!” UPGRADE YOUR EXTERIOR, UPGRADE YOUR HOME’S VALUE
