There’s no steering around it—driveways play a big role in your home’s appearance. Small wonder: They’re sizeable features. A typical 20-by-40-ft. suburban driveway occupies about 800 sq. ft. of front yard—almost half a tennis court. Yet we often regard these hardworking necessities simply as slabs of concrete. With a little imagination, however, you can cook up a great-looking driveway that’ll boost curb appeal and help preserve the value of your property. Here are some ideas:
Knobs and pulls are kitchen jewelry that can dress cabinets up. Note that cabinet hardware can get very fancy and expensive — costing $30 and up for a single ornate knob. But you’ll get a huge bang for a few bucks by buying 10-packs of simple, contemporary hardware at big box stores for less than $20 (that’s $2 a knob!).
To save time and money, replace 1-hole hardware with 1-hole upgrades; 2-hole with 2-hole. That way, you won’t need to drill or patch.
A sorry-looking shack, with deep cracks in the cinder-block walls and busted windows, that looks like it’s ready to collapse: You wouldn’t pay a dime for that, would you? OK, say it’s nestled in the gorgeous hilltops of the San Francisco Peninsula with no shortage of pristine mountain views. Now how much would you pay? More than $1 million? Well, that’s how much it’s going for.
Even rundown, shabby homes in the San Francisco Bay Area are fetching prices that top-notch single-family homes do. The reason is simple: those gorgeous mountain views. It seems that a great view can get homebuyers to pay top dollar — even if the home itself is nothing to look at. The aforementioned shack? It’s going for $1.275 million. Another home in San Jose, Calif., has a bathroom that hasn’t had any work done to it since the 1930s, a kitchen that’s falling apart and a shabby exterior. The listing agent even admits that he’s “looking for someone to come in, remodel, probably flip this house.” Well, hope the flip nets a big profit because to buy this house as it is, you’ll need $585,000. See the video above to learn why such decrepit homes are going for such high prices.
