We all know that the housing market has taken quite a beating that last few years. Google “housing market” and it’s a lot of gloom and doom. If you’re looking to sell your home, it’s a good idea to ramp up its curb appeal without spending a fortune.
Studies have shown that pouring large amounts of money into lavish remodeling projects doesn’t always guarantee that you’ll make that money back upon sale of your home. In most cases, you actually lose out. Making smart choices equals a bigger return on investment.
Curb appeal is one of the most important factors for a potential buyer. Of course – it’s the first thing they see! In addition to some basic exterior improvements such as clearing yard debris, mowing the lawn, maybe planting some flowers – you also may want to consider replacing your home’s siding – especially if you’re home’s existing exterior is looking worn or outdated.
I wanted something that would look natural to our area in New York yet get rid of the horrible stucco and help our cookie cutter raised ranch stand out. - Sharon M.
A good example of a homeowner’s success siding her house with panels came from Sharon M.. She was kind enough to share photos of the final results she achieved using Regency Stacked Stone panels to update the look of her raised ranch in New York. Not bad for a stay-at-home mom with no carpentry experience. Actually – really, really good!
Using faux paneling for an exterior siding project may be a very good option for you. Not only are the materials less expensive than using real stone, brick or wood – most average homeowners find they complete the installation themselves in a very short time. Not having to hire a contractor – Bonus!!
