Fall is a great time to take a look at your home and make a list of improvements. Waiting for them to pile up just makes each task, well, a task. And if you plan to sell your home in the next year or so it’s a very good idea to get started. These days prospective home-buyers are pretty picky and can spot a hurried home improvement from a mile away
Even if you don’t plan to sell anytime soon treat yourself to a nice, little home makeover that you and your family can enjoy.
Here are a few home improvements that won’t break the bank (or your back).
-Get your yard in shape. The past summer was pretty awful in most of the US and our poor lawns and landscapes really show it. Clear away dead shrubbery and put down a fresh layer of mulch. Fall is a great time to plant, so add some new perennials, shrubs, or bulbs for color in the spring.
-Add some planters or pots to your front porch or windows. Take away those poor impatiens that withered and died and replace with some mums and a pumpkin or two. Or consider a small potted evergreen that you can decorate for Christmas and then plant in the spring or rotate to another spot.
–Paint your trim. Rather than paint your entire home consider just the trim. You can really change the feel of your home with just a small amount of new color. For a larger impact consider painting your front door; some say it’s good luck. Don’t forget a seasonal door hanging to welcome guests.
-For some major curb appeal and a dramatic new look consider a new garage door. According to Remodeling Magazine a garage door replacement is a very cost effective home improvement and ranks as the #4 mid-range exterior project. Even better, a garage door replacement will recoup 71.9% of the cost invested when you sell.
