Fall Home Improvement Projects
Upgrade the Front Porch
Give your front door a facelift by repainting it. A freshly painted front door will surely make your home stand out in the neighborhood. The fall season is the perfect time to paint the front door as the paint dries properly in cooler weather. Upgrade your front porch by also adding in-season potted plants, outdoor furniture, and a new doormat. Upgrades to your front porch are great fall home improvement projects that will make the outdoor space welcoming. These upgrades will also enhance your guests’ or potential homebuyers’ first impression of your home!
Upgrade the HVAC
If your central air system is old or you’re starting to notice it’s not working well as it used to, it may be time to replace or repair it. It is best to service your system before Winter so you are not left with a frigid home because the heating is not working. This is especially imperative for those selling their home. Homebuyers want to ensure the home they buy has a well working, updated HVAC, and nobody wants to tour a cold home!
Pressure Wash the Exterior
Another home improvement project to tackle this Fall is to pressure wash the exterior of your home. This includes the sides of your home, windows, driveway, and surrounding pavement or sidewalks. Pressure washing allows you to remove any dirt, stains, mildew, and algae from exterior surfaces. A clean and freshly pressure washed exterior makes your home stand out and will impress potential homebuyers!
With the leaves falling from trees during the autumn season, heaps of leaves lying around can distract home buyers and make the exterior of your home look messy. Make it a regular Fall home improvement project to remove leaves from the gutters and sweep up the exterior of your home to remove any dead leaves.
Revamp Your Deck
A lot of time is spent outdoors on the deck, whether it’s gathering around a fire or hanging out with the family outside on a cool day. A rotten, discolored, or broken deck can make the exterior of your home look less appealing. Whether you decide to replace the deck entirely, repaint, remove splinters, or fix a broken railing, upgrading your deck will amp the curb appeal of your home. It will also make the space a more inviting place where family and friends will want to gather this fall.
These fall home improvement projects will have your home ready to sell, and you’ll enjoy your time doing them in nice, cooler weather.
