There are several simple, inexpensive, things people can do to improve their home’s curb appeal. The following are 5 tricks that fix and flip experts regularly use to make a property look better and increase the value of the home.

Upgrade The Front Door
Dressing up the front door can give your home more personality and make it look more attractive. Painting or replacing your front door, hanging a wreath on it or putting a small bench near the front door area can dramatically improve the look of the front of your home.

Create Symmetry
People intuitively find symmetry appealing and attractive. To improve the way your home looks from curbside, consider placing a plant pot with an attractive small bush on both sides of your front door. This is a common tactic fix and flippers use to add beauty to a property and make it easier to sell.

Add Container Gardens
Another way to beautify the front of your home is to add a container garden. All that’s required are a few attractive plants and containers of various sizes and colors arranged in an interesting manner.

Upgrade The Hardware
Making hardware upgrades like getting new, more attractive door knobs, gutters, house numbers, doorbells and mailboxes can significantly improve your home’s curb appeal. You can create a rustic, traditional, industrial or any other theme by just adding some new hardware.

Change The Lights
Another simple thing experience fix and flippers do to improve the look of a home’s fa├žade is to change the lights. Adding a stylish or unique light near the front door or putting inexpensive but attractive rope lights or solar powered lights along the walkway leading to the front door can transform your home and make it look pleasant, welcoming and elegant.
