I ran across an interesting article today about the top 8 tips to add curb appeal and value to your home. All the suggestions are quite manageable, fairly affordable and YES I highly recommend that you call Atlas Premiere (shameless plug). I will share the full link but first, while reading this article I wondered something else entirely:
Why do so many of us wait until we are ready to sell before we spruce up the place, freshen up paint and maintain it properly?
Your home is likely the largest investment you will make in your lifetime and a place where you spend A LOT of your time. Why do so many of us not freshen up the appearance or do those weekend projects that we know we would love? The idea of enjoying your home and investing in the updates while YOU are living there and not only when preparing to sell.
Finances perhaps. Life gets in the way. Nobody to do it for you. It is hard to say why so many of us don’t do these little touch-up’s and suggestions in the article. But is it safe to say that most of us would appreciate seeing them every single time we arrive home. It would bring a smile to our faces.
Food for thought. There is no time like the present!
#1 Wash your house – An interesting way of saying PRESSURE WASH right?
#2 Freshen up the paint
