Thinking of selling your home this summer or fall and want to figure out a way to make it stand out above the crowd? It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg! … Okay well maybe a back ache or two but well worth your while. It’s no secret that when selling your property, having a great curb appeal can really set you apart from the competition and help you sell, So we figured in spirit of the change in season and with some beautiful weather ahead, this week we will be looking at the 4 Summer DIY Projects to elevate your home! Women, if you were looking to put your men to work… you are going to love this article!
1. Gardening
Whether it be a rock garden, a flower bed or simply just reviving that tired, yellow lawn, gardening around your home does wonders to make your neighbours jealous and home buyers drool! Gardening is something that even those without a green thumb can tackle and is fortunately very cost effective seeing as you can take care of everything yourself. Freshening up the front and the back of your home gives buyers the impression that you take the time to maintain your home, and makes it look clean cut and ready for the summer time! It gives everyone something to be proud of.
2. Window Washing
It may still be too early, and sometimes it seems as though the day you take care of this, it decides to rain for a week.. but a great way to add curb appeal to your home and help showcase it better to potential buyers is clean windows! Now keep in mind people, cleaning your windows is more than just some paper towel and windex… We are talking deep clean! From the windows, to the frames and tracks, cleaning your windows makes them look newer and actually enhances the value of them to buyers and keeps your home looking cleaner for longer!
3. Fence Slats
Thinking of a great way to add some intimacy to your backyard? A fence might be a lot of work but buying/installing some slats is a whole different story! Easy to install and readily available at hardware stores, fence slats are a great way to add privacy to your home and make your backyard look cleaner and sleek if you are thinking of selling. This would be an even better idea if one of your neighbours has a messy backyard that is full of unwanted weeds and flowers!
4. Epoxy & Stucco Projects
Although this may be the most challenging of our four ideas, it is still a DIY project that truly does elevate the look of your home and actually does protect it against mother nature! Whether you were thinking of potentially adding an epoxy look to a balcony or the garage or simply ready to add some stucco/crepie to the siding of your home to cover that unfinished foundation wall, these two elements never go unnoticed in any home! Epoxy is a little bit easier to DIY for a home project whereas Crepie on your foundation siding takes a bit more finesse, yet both add the golden touch to any home!

So whether it be as simple as a little gardening or more complex like a garage epoxy floor project – Elevating your home this summer does not need to be a costly endeavour. Doing it yourself does not always turn out exactly as expected so the one thing we do want to stress is that you take the time to look at videos or even get a friend or two involved with a bit more expertise to make sure the job gets done properly.
