Improve the curbside appeal of a property with focal points

Any decent realtor will tell you that most potential buyers will simply drive by a property that is not attractive from the street – that is, one with no “curbside appeal. Here are a few tips for improving this aspect of your property:

Replace the front door – First impressions do matter when it comes to a house. Your guests and potential buyers will notice a dilapidated door. Replace is with the best one you can afford.

Improve the mailbox – Nothing says “low class” like a dented mailbox on a rusted and bent pole. Replace them with a stone pillar and prominently display your name and address.

Add a lamp post – A front yard lamp post adds security and safety as well as a little aesthetic beauty. Place one near the walkway and the street for maximum effect.
