FIVE FALL CURB APPEAL IMPROVEMENTS Fall is here, and with it comes a prime time to sell your home. Summer is a great time to sell, but if you weren’t able or ready to list your home at that time, the fall is a great option as well. And as lovely as your home may be, there are always things you can do to take it to the next level, especially when it comes to curb appeal. Fitting in a few simple exterior home improvements can add value to your home before the weather turns cold, helping to snag those end-of-season real estate browsers. So what upgrades can you make that are easy, cost-effective and will make potential buyers “fall” in love with your home this season? Here are a few tips: Front door décor – The front door leaves a lasting first impression of your house. While completely replacing the front door is an option, simply sanding and repainting your existing door can make a big difference and save on costs. A bright or bold color like red can really make your door pop, especially against a white or tan exterior. For a little extra: Add a nice fall foliage wreath, or a doorknocker to accentuate your home’s entrance. Sync hardware – Mismatched exterior hardware can make your home appear disheveled and create a non-cohesive aesthetic. By streamlining your house numbers, lock, door handle and exterior light fixtures with matching finishes, you can give your home a consistent, put-together look in less than a day without a large investment. For a little extra: Upgrade your lock with a high-end deadbolt with cover plate for added curb appeal and security.

The Real Estate Book Portland & Southern Maine - Vol. 33, Issue 12 - Page 9
Great greenery – A well maintained lawn can tie together the overall look of the outside of your house, presenting a clean and sleek front to accompany your home’s entrance. With fall being a transition time for many plants, adding mums or ornamental grasses in hearty autumn colors like gold or orange to complement changing leaves can bring depth to your yard. For a little extra: Add reusable window boxes and porch containers filled with gourds, cornstalks and leaves to create an autumn feel. Light the way – A well-designed walkway leading to your front door can make your home seem even more warm and inviting. Make sure the path is well lit by installing outdoor lighting that not only provides illumination and value, but also security. For those without a walkway, installing a lamppost or lantern at the end of our driveway is a good option. For a little extra: Incorporate solar lights along your front door walkway for an easy and cost-effective makeover that is also energy efficient.
Make-over your mailbox – Sitting at the end of the driveway, the mailbox is often forgotten about when it comes to your outdoor décor. Making sure your mailbox complements your look and feel is yet another way to catch the eye of a potential buyer. If you don’t live in an area with strict rules, spruce up your standard letter holder with trim, new paint or fancy finish (and steer clear of novelty sport or hobby mailboxes). Pay attention to the mailbox post as well. If the wood is weathered or showing signs of rot, it should be replaced. Consider a post made out of polymer, treated wood, iron, bronze, or even brick. For a little extra: Add a trellis behind the mailbox for extra landscaping and a pop of color. Preparing your home for sale, especially as the busy summer season is ending, can seem stressful, but with a few quick, easy and cost-effective improvements you can increase your home’s curb appeal no matter the season, especially in the fall. Doing so will boost your home’s value and attract more potential buyers, which will help the stress of selling your home slip away! Reprinted with permission from RISMedia. ©2018.

M PREPARING YOUR Movers HOME FOR AUTUMN: MAINTENANCE TIPS FOR THE END OF SUMMER
BY ANITA ALVAREZ
It’s almost time. Sigh. Summer is drawing to a close, like it or not. Before the leaves fall and the wind turns chilly, it’s a good idea to do some seasonal maintenance on your home. Here are some things to add to your fall “honey-do” list.
HAVE YOUR FURNACE INSPECTED. It’s smart to have your heating system serviced before you actually need to use it. Experts say that as much as 75 percent of the calls they receive about homeowners without heat are a result of not having the furnace serviced and cleaned. It will also keep your heating costs down and help keep the air in your home healthy. INSPECT YOUR ROOF. You’ll want to check for shin-
gles that are cracked, buckling, or missing. Check for caulking that needs to be replaced, or moss or lichen, which could indicate deterioration underneath. If you don’t trust your own assessment, work with a certified inspector.
CHECK THE AIRFLOW. Focus on areas like vents, the
hood over your stove, dryer vents, baseboard heaters and room fans. Not only is a buildup of dust a fire hazard, but you also want to keep the air flowing and the allergens at bay.
GET CONTROL OF GUTTERS AND DOWNSPOUTS. Clogs
in gutters and downspouts can cause the roof to leak, which can lead to a host of other problems. It’s a slippery slope from clogged gutters to water damage in your home!
REPLACE WEATHERSTRIPPING ON DOORS. There could be gaps that you can’t see and that can jack up your energy costs.It’s a simple fix that can be done with items found at your local hardware store. APPLY A FRESH COAT OF PAINT. Interior painting re-
quires good ventilation, so the best time to tackle a paint spruce-up is the time of year when you can open up your windows.
INSPECT YOUR INSULATION. The most important
area to check is your attic. You should have the highest concentration of insulation here. See if there are any gaps that need to be filled. You don’t need to check the insulation in your walls unless you notice heating issues.
CHECK FOR MOLD. The humidity of summer can cause mold to flourish. Check locations such as around leaky pipes, basements, or areas that don’t get good ventilation. You will want to remove the mold as soon as possible. It’s wise to have this done by a professional. LOOK OVER YOUR SIDING. You’ll want to look for any areas on vinyl siding that are buckled or warped. If you have wood siding, look for curling, splitting or cracking. Should you find an issue, you’ll definitely want it taken care of before the weather gets cold! MAKE SURE YOUR DETECTORS ARE WORKING. Ensure both smoke and carbon monoxide detectors have fresh batteries. It’s smart to test them, also. Both are especially important once your furnace is in use. Heather Motes,
