Whether you plan to stay in your home for years or put it on the market soon, there are dozens of ways to increase your home's value. Upgrading the kitchen, adding decks, and making the living area more spacious add to the value of your home by thousands and bring enjoyment for you at the same time. For example, imagine having your own inground pool. If you haven't checked inground pool pricing, you may be surprised to find you can afford it.There are other smaller ways to increase your home's value. One important way is by increasing curb appeal. What does your home look like to a passerby? Following are 10 ideas for increasing your home's curb appeal.
1. Spruce Up the Front Door
Your home's front door is like a welcoming smile. Make sure yours is bright and attractive. If it's in terrible condition, consider replacing it. Otherwise, a fresh coat of paint in a color that compliments your home will do. Polish or replace the doorknob and hardware. A metal kick plate at the bottom will do wonders to cover pet scratches and other damage.
2. Install Outdoor Lighting
