Crist Real Estate Group

Say goodbye to those long Wisconsin winter days and look ahead to spring! As the warmer weather approaches, your ability to boost curb appeal gets a bit easier. Below are 6 ways to enhance character, charm and increase potential value.

  • A Fresh Coat of Paint – A fresh coat of paint is one of the easiest ways to add a new look to your home. You can choose to paint your entire house or just the trim or front door. Select a color that complements your home’s exterior, and opt for a paint that is weather-resistant to ensure it lasts for years to come.
  • Landscaping – Consider adding some plants and flowers to add color and texture to your landscaping. And, adding mulch or landscaping rocks can help keep your property neat and tidy!
  • Outdoor Lighting – Outdoor lighting can enhance the charm of your home, plus add a level of security. Options might include new exterior lights on front porch or motion-sensor lights near driveway. Stringed lights around a fire pit or sitting are a popular choice for enjoying those peaceful Wisconsin summer nights. 
  • Upgrade your Front Door – Enhance one of the first attributes your visitors notice as they enter your home! You can choose from a variety of materials, such as wood, fiberglass, or steel, and add decorative glass inserts to make it pop. Even a fresh coat of paint can make a difference.
  • Window Treatments – Window treatments can add a significant amount of curb appeal to your home. Consider adding shutters or window boxes to provide a finished look. You can also add decorative trim around your windows to make them stand out.
  • Clean and Repair – Power wash your home’s exterior, clean your windows, and repair any damaged or broken items, such as gutters, roof shingles, or siding. Help make your home inviting and not weathered and tired!
