“I guess [it’s] because people are at home more now, and they’re seeing that their house really needs to be repaired and updated,” Vestal said.
He offered advice on some of the key maintenance areas in a home and suggested projects homeowners can take on to improve their home value.
Paint the front door
Creating a pretty front door is one of the simplest projects a homeowner can do to increase curb appeal.
Paint kitchen cabinets
Painting kitchen cabinets and adding new hardware can refresh the look of a kitchen. One popular color people are choosing to paint with is white, Vestal said.
Having lights that are updated—not only in bathrooms, but also in hallways and other living spaces—can help improve the look of a home.
Mirrors can be updated with a simple frame to add a personalized touch in bathrooms or other spaces where mirrors are used.
Like doors, windows are one of the first things people see with the home. Making sure they are clean is a simple but effective way to help boost curb appeal.
