Hey everyone I’m back with the next few tips, 3, 4, and 5 on how to improve your home. Hope you find these useful, not only if you’re planning to sell your Sherman Oaks home. But if you’re like me you’re constantly working to improve your home. I know these will come in handy.

Add a Focal Point A tidy lawn will impress homebuyers, but a vibrant lawn will really wow them. Adding colorful flowers and plants is one great way to make an average yard pop. For an easy, inexpensive fix, install flower boxes in your windows or place low-maintenance, potted plants around your front door. If you have a green thumb, look into attractive perennials and evergreens that thrive in your region. Besides adding flowers, you can also liven up your landscaping by incorporating eye-catching accent pieces, such as a water feature or an arbor.

Refresh With Paint If your home’s exterior looks a little dull, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders. Be sure to choose colors wisely: Muted, earth tones are usually a safe bet, but you should take a drive around your neighborhood to see what’s standard. If you don’t have the time or money to paint the entire house, freshen it up and add a splash of color by painting the shutters, trim and railings.

Light It Up Not only can outdoor lighting highlight your home’s best features, it can also provide safety and security at night — a feature potential homebuyers will appreciate if they tour your home after dark. Landscape lighting used to be difficult and expensive to set up and maintain, but pre-packaged lighting kits now cost as little as $40 and only take an hour or two to install. Consider adding decorative lighting along walkways or flood lights over entrance areas to brighten up your home.
