A beautiful exterior will definitely stand out and reflects the general style of the house. You can add personality to your home with well-planned landscaping and exterior lights. Keeping your lawn and garden green and flourishing can make a home feel welcoming. So can a bright front door with smart locks.

The home’s exterior protects everything inside, so you need to take care of it. This includes your roof, your front porch and your driveway. Keep on top of regular maintenance tasks. The longer you let the exterior deteriorate, the bigger problems you might have in the future.
A fresh coat of paint on the exterior can add value in two ways: you’ll see the return on your investment – and then some – when you paint the home. You will also help create a strong first impression for the home, potentially motivating buyers to make an offer more quickly. Read my tips on painting the exterior of your home.
