4 Simple Steps to Increasing the Curb Appeal on your Bahamian Home

Whether you are looking to give your Bahamian home a facelift or getting ready to put it on the market, upgrading your home's curb appeal can make a huge difference. In fact, a little paint and some elbow grease can add thousands of dollars worth of value to your home and help it to sell faster. Here are a few simple projects you can do to help up the curb appeal of your island getaway.

Give your home a good wash. By simply taking a bucket full of soapy water to the outside of your house, you can add $10,000-$15,000 to the sale price of your home. Use a long-handled, soft-bristled brush to remove any dust and dirty buildup that your exterior may have acquired, or you can rent a pressure-washer to get the job done faster. Make sure to wash the inside and outside of windows, and any doors as well.

Well maintained home

Clean up your yard. A well-manicured lawn, fresh mulch, and  pruned shrubs add to the curb appeal of any home. Green up  your grass with lawn food and water, and make sure to cover any bare spots with seeds and sod.

Add a splash of color. No island home is complete without  some added brightness and color. Plant some colorful flowers, add a brightly colored bench to your front porch, or even paint  your front door a fun color. Just remember, a little big of color  goes a long way.

Keep up on the maintenance. Make sure to refasten any sagging gutters, reseal cracked asphalt, straighten shutters, and replace any cracked windows. Not keeping up with the simple things can decrease the value of your house by 10%.
