When it comes to selling your home, curb appeal is everything. You can have the most lavish kitchen and gorgeous open concept inside, but if you can't get potential homebuyers past the front door, the value of those features can only go down.

The good news is you don't need to hire a landscaping company and completely revamp your yard to get homebuyers looking at your house. Here are a few simple curb appeal projects you can do in a single weekend to get your home move-in ready.

Add plants on either side of the door

About 40% of homebuyers surveyed by NAHB said they would like to live in an eco-friendly home. You can appeal to eco-friendly homebuyers by playing up the greenery just outside your door.

Consider placing two lush shrubs on either side of your front door in eye-catching pots. Blooming flowers are also a great choice to add curb appeal and a pop of color in one.

Paint your front door a bold color

It can be expensive to paint the entire outside of your house. But a gallon of paint for just your front door can cost only $25.

Consider choosing a bold color that makes the rest of your house stand out like a navy blue or an emerald green. Add metal house numbers that cost under $5 each and you'll have your home looking spruced up for under $50.

Wash away any dirt

Sometimes all your home needs to stand out on the market is a good cleaning. Consider getting a power washer and washing away any dirt or grime that's built up in your home's paneling and sides.

You can also use a power washer to clean your home's sidewalk or stone paths. Don't have a power washer? Turn your garden hose to its strongest setting, instead.
