The housing market in Woodstock, GA continues to boom! If you are thinking about a move, curb appeal counts and first impressions count! Boost your spring home improvements a little more than usual in an effort to catch that increased sales price!
Power washing can do wonders for both curb appeal and resale value. In North Georgia, algae tends to creep up the sides of homes. Plan to clean the entire home, including the concrete on the driveway and sidewalk, as well as the gutters and roof.
If you’ve been in your home for more than a year and are attempting to sell it, it may be time for a fresh coat of paint. This is especially true if you live in a newer home that came standard with flat paint, and for homes with high traffic areas used by pets and kids. While interior painting won’t affect your curb appeal, it will improve the first impression of those entering your home. Stick with neutral tones that will allow a new owner to start with a fresh palette.
Years of exposure to the sun can cause your home’s exterior to look a little drab. Many homes in north Georgia are built using HardiePlank™ siding. This siding is long lasting and holds up for much longer than vinyl siding, but it is recommended by the manufacturer that it be repainted every 7-9 years.
Increasing curb appeal or improving resale value may require making a few basic repairs or upgrades to the exterior. A few things to consider include screens, wood trimming or posts, railings, and decking. If screens are loose or have unsightly holes, replace or patch them. Replace rotting wood in your trimwork, posts, railings or decking. These repairs will improve curb appeal and resale value, as well as the safety of your home.
