To improve curb appeal, or not to improve curb appeal…

Curb appeal, which essentially makes or breaks the exterior look and feel of a home or business, is on the minds of homeowners and businessowners alike. What you get out of your home or business is largely dependent on your personal level of contentment with the property as well as first impressions from others. If you’re skeptical, we have statistics to prove it.

According to a study conducted by the University of Alabama and the University of Texas at Arlington, curb appeal can add anywhere from 7% to 14% to your sale price on average. Additionally, NAR (National Association of REALTORS) states that among homeowners who invest in curb appeal, 75% say they have a greater desire to be home since completing the project, 59% say they have an increased sense of enjoyment when they are at home, and 63% say they feel a major sense of accomplishment when they think of the project. Lastly, a Princeton research study once found that people tend to gain impressions of people and objects within a tenth of a second, and that those initial ideas can be very hard to shake over time… this rings true for homes and businesses, too.
