As fall time quickly rolls in and the weather begins to cool around the Triangle, working on home improvements can be a great way to pass time and have your home looking better than ever. At Raleigh Cary Realty, we want every house in the local area to look amazing, whether it is going up on the market or not. With the right home improvements, a great home can become a jaw-dropping one.
Here are four home improvement project ideas for this fall:
- Paint your front door: When someone is about to enter your house, all attention is on the door. The entryway to your home always makes the first impression and having a nice colored door, maybe with a pop of color, and a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference. Many homeowners choose to go with a neutral color palette for the rest of the home but pick a brighter color to spice up the door.
- Power wash: In the spring and summer time, there is tons of debris and humidity in the air which collects as a film on the outside of a house. Power washing cleans this and gets rid of any dirt and mold, preparing your home for the winter season.
- Update landscaping: Updating your yard can be as simple as spreading some new mulch in the flowerbeds around your home or adding in some new bushes into the mix. When doing this, make sure to take the time to trim back tree branches as well. Having a well-kept yard not only elevates the feel of your home but also brings up the value.
- Paint your exterior: Fall is one of the best times of the year to freshen up your exterior paint, because winter can bring wet weather very quickly. Painting your home during this time also acts as a sealant for the exterior surface and lowers the chance of any water getting in the cracks. Right now, painting brick homes white has been extremely popular with homeowners. This project will allow your house to stand out from the rest, giving a bright and inviting feel.
Home improvement projects might seem like a chore in some people’s eyes, but they make such a difference in the long run especially when trying to sell your home. With any questions about home improvements, contact the experts at Raleigh Cary Realty today.
