How to Add Curb Appeal to Your Mesa Home on a Budget

Adding curb appeal to your home in Mesa can easily rack up the big bucks, but is it possible to do it on a budget? 

Here’s a look at some of the simplest and most affordable ways to improve the outward appearance of your Arizona home.

Wash Your Home’s Exterior

Dirt and dust accumulate on the exterior of your home so gradually that it can be hard to remember what it looks like without it. Rent a pressure washer from your local home improvement store or spray down your home’s exterior, including the sidewalks and driveway. It costs less than $40/day, and you’ll be amazed at how much better your house looks when it’s clean.

Paint the Front Door

A gallon of exterior paint costs between $15 and $40, and that will be more than enough to freshen up your front door. It’s easy to ignore a worn front door, but a quick coat of paint will turn it from something that your eyes skip over to a complete show stopper. Make sure you pick a color that compliments the rest of your house and isn’t too polarizing. Front doors are the first thing visitors and potential homebuyers will notice, so it’s worth the time and expense to make it an eyecatcher. 

Update Hardware

The costs here can vary greatly depending on the style and quality you choose, but updating hardware can definitely be done on a budget. Consider getting a new handle and deadbolt for the front door, update the house numbers, purchase a new mailbox, and freshen up the light fixtures. Even small improvements can make a big impact on curb appeal.

Incorporate Accessories

Take a trip to your favorite outlet or overstock store and pick up a new welcome mat and a seasonal wreath for your front door. If you have any furniture on your front porch, grab some new throw pillows or cushions while you’re at it. Add in a decorative planter with some fresh flowers and your entryway will get an instant facelift on the cheap.

Do Some Yard Work

Assuming you already have the tools for the job, this fix won’t cost you anything but time. Roll up those sleeves and get to work. Cut the grass. Pull the weeds. Trim the trees and shrubs. Maintaining your landscape is one of the easiest and most effective ways to improve the outward appearance of your home.
