first impressions are absolutely everything especially when you're selling your home or if you just want to impress people but if painting your entire house or landscaping your entire yard seems too pricey and trust me it is pricey never fear home in lifestyle expert Carter Oosterhouse from Trading Spaces is here with high impact low priced tips for creating curb appeal yes absolutely good morning to you thanks perhaps we joining us this morning and that's the number one thing you can do if you're playing the sell your house and this is the time people are thinking about doing this is the time I've seen it you know the uptick is you know like some thirty percent of people selling your home around the springtime so it's usually right and also you know springtime so you want to get out there and create that exterior that you we were all inside for so long I guess we talked about things you could do on the inside today we're talking about stuff you can do on the outside because curb appeal is the number one thing you can do to raise the price of your and it's not super expensive it's not stuff that's gonna break the bank it's not something that you have to feel like you're gonna oh I don't even know where to start well I'm gonna I'm gonna add some little tips here where you can start so how do we start it oh wow one thing is you know the exterior of your home you want it to look beautiful so paint the parts paint the parts that painting the different in your whole house seems to be a lot very very involved in really expensive so paint the parts they trim the shutters the gutters maybe your garage maybe your mailbox your window box the smaller things and if you want you can even rent a power washer to spray down the rest of your home okay and that you rent to power one of this is ya know at a house before the trim and all of that was so this is the before and that's the and so again so painting the trim very inexpensive it's it not doesn't take a whole lot of time and rent a power washer to clean the rest of your house and the top of the box in a day you can rent one at a big box store and a can of paint 25 bucks so I mean I mean that's really cheap we're really inexpensive and again it's not something where you feel like you have to paint the entire house okay create a brand in cha the entry the anyway because that makes a real impression yes this is the doorway to your home this is what you want buyers to see so add a little splash of paint on that door I know that's again 25 dollars for a can of paint maybe make a little bit of a pup you know something exterior maybe add a little color that's gonna get a lot of visual interest is amazing the visual impact oh my gosh look at that look at the the bench seat that is under $50 you can add pots and plants maybe add some symmetry within the space and you talked about maybe putting a little seating area and not only are you beautiful in this area up but you're also adding another area for me the homeowner to put potential homeowner to come and hang out in alright and maybe a new doormat new doormat very inexpensive it just beings a smile to everybody's face right so yeah so some of the again there's a little looks like they may have added a new light out there so yeah so this is where we really get into the hardware the hardware can be light fixtures which can be very inexpensive if there's already wiring to it so replace those old ones and then the address numbers one last time we've ever changed our address numbers right and those again make a big pop and everybody's looking for the address anyway and they're very inexpensive as well and then the door handle itself you know that's something that you can change out for under $50 okay now if you if you do all of those things people still look at mister before and a half that's a knocker that we use so we just put a knocker right on that door so it makes a big difference in the door right away you know so that's something that you can just a fix to it with two simple screws and you have a door knocker if it gives a class here look and there's a there's an address numbers okay so now you know if you are doing landscaping you know that can cost many thousands of dollars what can you do with your landscaping your front and back yard you don't want to add the big box woods you know the bigger mature trees you can add perennials you can add annuals okay lots of color that's just gonna you know it's gonna be there for a short lived amount of time if they're annuals but at the end of the day it's gonna still add pops of color if you want to add little trim garden beds around maybe even on the driveway or next to the door all of these things you talked about maybe a couple thousand dollars so we're not even talking a couple thousand dollars works on we're talking roughly around up to about a thousand dollars they say you're gonna make a big splash and a big inning to get a lot more in return yes alright thanks so much by the way check out Carter this Saturday at 9 p.m. on the while you were out reboot on TLC and HGTV and you also see him on upcoming episodes of Trading Spaces at 8 p.m. plus
