With Spring right around the corner, you may be considering putting your house on the market. And since first impressions can mean so much, it’s important to add some pizazz to your house and give it that extra little oomph that might help make the sale.

For the cost of a bucket of paint, you can add something special to your front door or shutters. Painting your door a bold, playful, or sophisticated color creates an eye-catching feature that can set your house apart. Make sure to pick a color that compliments your house color though.

While you’re at it, you can change out your door hardware. If you don’t want to spend the money to replace it, you can pretty easily spray paint the existing door handles.

Throw down a fun door mat and boom, you’ve created some instant welcoming appeal.  If you want to take it a step further, update your house numbers with a new font, or clean up the existing ones you have.

Another inexpensive upgrade is a new mailbox. Be sure to follow the codes of your city.

If you can spare the time, pressure wash your siding and deck. This will clean it up and help it look like new!

For a relatively minimal amount you can update and replace the exterior lighting. Give your home a cozy glow by making sure it is well-lit. Plus, good lighting adds safety. If the budget allows it, light up your landscaping. Many solar light fixtures are low-cost and easy to install.

A charming addition to any home are flower boxes.  These attractive additions are pretty inexpensive or you can build them yourself. Don’t forget to water the flowers!
