Here are five easy and affordable steps you can take to increase your home's curb appeal:

Fix Your Mailbox.  Get a new one or paint and properly install your old one.  Finish the look with some plantings at the base for added color.

Add House Numbers.  Make sure the numbers are large enough to see and match the style of your home.

Paint Your Front Door:  Find a complementing color that draws peoples' eyes to your front stoop.  

Arrange Front Yard Seating:  Whether it's a little bench along a path, a small bistro set on your porch, it can impact your whole street.

Install Lighting:  Solar lights are great along the driveway, sconces around the front door or a pendant chandelier.
