20 Ways to Boost Your Home

Summer is a popular season to put a Chicagoland home on the market. And, with so many other homeowners having the same idea, it can be a challenge to make your house stand out from the competition. After all you only get one shot to make a good first impression on potential buyers.  Not to worry though–there are a number of things you can do to make your home as attractive as possible to potential buyers.

According to Better Homes and Gardens there are 20 smart ways you can add to the curb appeal of your home before you put up a “For Sale” sign.  Some of their suggestions include:

  1. Dress Up your Front Door: Giving your front door a fresh coat of paint or installing a new door will give your home a great and welcoming first impression.
  2. Replace Gutters and Downspouts: Newer vinyl gutter systems require little maintenance and copper gutter systems, though more expensive, provide your home with an unmistakable look of quality.
  3. Renew Siding and Trim: Obvious defects, cracks, and rotting in your home’s existing siding can make potential buyers turn away quickly. New siding can spruce things up quickly and economically.
