Curb Appeal...

By
Real Estate Agent with KELLER WILLIAMS REALTY "New Orleans"

If your house looks great on the outside, then people will want to come see the inside! 

Curb Appeal:

  •  
    • Buy "Chunky House numbers" that are visible when people drive by. ($5-$7 a letter)
    • Buy a nice mailbox... ($30-$70)
    • Paint your door & Shutters a contrasting color...here in New Orleans you can go kind of wild. ($25)
      • Remember if you have a neutral colored house you can go bright on the doors and shutters...If you have a vibrant colored house it's best to go with black or white shutters to tone the house down)
    • Add Shutters to the front Windows. (If you are handy, you can make your own shutters for the tall Windows with solid wood bi-fold door panels) ($60-70 a set)
    • Add Window Boxes to your windows ($50-$75 a window)
    • New Plants/Landscaping ($100-$300)...make sure it's low maintenance and you can even buy an automatic DIY watering kit & a timer at Lowe's (in the plumbing dept- NOT gardening)...for $60!!!
    • If you can make it work with your homes decor...buy a Porch Swing ($100) or Rocking Chairs for the front Porch...

A White Picket Fence will make people drool too......."You know...the one with the white picket fence..."...how picturesque is that...

A SMALL INVESTMENT to set your house apart from the competition...BUYERS will see the outside and  want to see the inside!
