It’s ok to go a little crazy when shopping for furniture and decorative items for your new house. Everybody wants to create the perfect home that is not only beautiful but has all the comforts too. That Jacuzzi you installed in the bathroom is a great place to let go of your stress after a hectic workday. That hidden door, which leads to an oasis where no one can disturb you, is pretty amazing, isn’t it? It really gives a 007 vibe. In all this interior decoration for your comfort, you forgot to pay attention to the exterior, especially the curb appeal. Now that the time has come to put up your home for sale in Northville, Michigan, you are having difficulty in attracting buyers.

Mowing the lawn monthly, so that your house doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb is one thing but leaving skid marks on the driveway and not repairing chipped pavement is poor neglect. Following are a few projects that will help you improve the curb appeal of your home for sale in Northville, Michigan, as well as increase the chances of getting a high profit on it:

Value-Boosting Landscaping Additions

Basic landscaping designs are easy to achieve. All you need to do is replace and add a few things and the entire look of your garden and front yard will change. Think of it this way, if you can spend so much money on your wardrobe, then you can also spend a few hours on revamping the garden for that perfect look.

Following are a few basic things that you can use for your garden:

  • Flagstone walkway
  • Stone planters (5 by 2 feet)
  • While a tall tree adds immense value to the front yard but if you don’t have that, you can make do with wild shrubs
  • Quality mulch
  • Flowering shrubs
  • Center piece if you have a big driveway

Garden Maintenance

It can be quite difficult and costly to maintain a garden. A big turn off for buyers is dead plants, so make sure that during individual tours or an open house, the garden is colorful and rosy. One of the biggest benefits of maintaining a lush garden is that it guarantees 100% ROI. A garden always gives a picturesque look and is considered the ultimate value-boosting curb appeal.

Lawn Maintenance

If you have maintained your garden year round, then you don’t have to spend a dime on it. Law maintenance has four rules:

  1. Fertilize
  2. Aerate
  3. Weed
  4. Rake

This gives a lush and barefoot-friendly lawn, which every buyer loves.

Add a Deck

Adding a deck to the front yard is a costly project but it is the one thing that attracts buyers the most. It offers a small and calming place to sunbathe and enjoy the breeze. A deck offers 80% ROI, which is more than what you get by renovating a kitchen. Buyers with big families will love this feature, as you can entice them with ideas of evening cookouts and Sunday brunches.

So, there you go… four projects that will help you increase the curb appeal of your house and the real estate value.
