Some Reasons Why Curb Appeal Matters

Based on this article, it is true that curb appeal matters when you are selling the property since this is the attractiveness of the property that is for sale.  Now the question is, how this is important on properties that are not for sale yet or will not be for sale at all?  The article now answers this question

  • Pride of Ownership
    As mentioned, curb appeal refers to the visual impression perceived by others towards your property.  Although your property is not for sale, the mere fact that people appreciate your property gives you a sense of pride.

    Curb appeal does not just refer to beauty but also beyond skin deep personality of your house.  It refers to your property being seen with new walls, windows and such.
  • Safety
    New windows, doors, alarms, etc., do not just look good but it also portrays the feeling that your house is safe to be in considering that everything should work nicely.
  • Social Relations
    If you are in a neat environment and neighborhood, keeping your property at par is simply showing respect to your co-homeowners.
  • Gentrification
    If your house is located in an “up-and-coming neighborhood”, keeping the curb appeal means working together with your community on how the neighborhood can maintain this stature.
  • Enjoyment
    Since working on curb appeal means improving your property, this also means homeowners are enjoying what they are doing to make this possible.
  • Keeping your Options Open
    For now, you may not want to sell your priority but you never know what can happen in the future.  It is still best to be prepared with anything and having a competitive curb appeal comes handy.
