Impression is what can make a person be attracted to or be put off to something. That is why there is a saying that “First impression is the last impression”. Somehow there is a truth in this adage. Every now and then you hear comments “I’m impressed” or, I’m not impressed”. Anybody can be a victim of these comments, positively or negatively. Your home is not exempted.

It is a great desire for homeowners to make their homes look impressive; their reason may be for investment for future selling or just simply vain. But surely, for whatever reason it might be, this project will increase the curb appeal of your house. Improving the curb appeal of a house is one sure way of selling your house fast, because a good house appeal makes for sure buyer.

Of course your first move to improve the image of your house is to examine your house thoroughly from a distance or from a vantage point. From here you can see the beauty and the flaws of your house and make your decision on what specific area you will have to improve and whatever area to retain as is. Hear are some tips on how to improve the curb appeal of your house:

  • Paint is the most effective way of enhancing the beauty of your house; choose the best color scheme to suit your house.

  • If you can not justify the cost of a new door, consider replacing plain doorknob hardware with something more attractive.

  • Make sure lighting that's visible through front doors and windows enhances the home's appearance.

  • Lawn with beautiful eye-catching plants is very appealing to passers by; this is a good investment. Consider the local plants that are easy to maintain and can withstand pest and insects.

  • Installing decorative street lamps or lampshades in your lawn and porch can make it look dramatic at night.

  • Clear the roof, driveway and sidewalks of mildew and molds. Stow your gardens tools in their proper places; do not leave them on your lawn cluttered. Gutters and windows should be cleaned; pressure-wash your decks and filthy sidings.

  • Nip the sidewalk edges of uneven growth of grasses; rid the bricks and concrete of vegetation growth.

  • Mow the lawn and rid them of weeds. Rake the leaves and the mowed grasses; trim the trees branches that are near your roof.

  • Do not forget to include the backyard in your improvement; potential buyers will always try to look at the backyard when buying a house.

  • Look at your landscape again; there are times when adding elements to your landscaping can improve curb appeal, but there are times when removing something is even more effective.

As you go along in your improvement work, you will discover that there will be more areas that will need some makeover, but be careful not to overdo things because, as they say too much icing can spoil the cake. Just opt for the simple but beautiful and elegant setting.
