In response to Toronto and the GTA’s rapidly growing population, more and more initiatives like developing under-utilized land, creating affordable living spaces, and extending public transportation systems are in place to mitigate the needs of the city’s expanding populace. Real estate is still a formative part of Toronto’s economy – with homeowners understanding the importance of maintaining and elevating their homes for the sake of resale value.
Opting for certain exterior home improvement tricks can boost curb appeal and contribute to a healthy resale value.
For many Torontonians, their home is their biggest asset. From re-doing your roof, new window and door installation, or something as simple as landscaping – you don’t need to break the bank to re-claim the value you’re looking for.
The following are a few ways you can boost your home’s curb appeal.
If your home’s roof looks like it needs help – it’s probably time to opt for roof repair. Whether it’s missing or damaged shingles, rusty flashing, or eroded gutters and downspouts, it’s worth taking the time to repair any roof-related issues. After all, it’s one of the first things prospective home buyers will see when they first drive up to your home for a viewing.
Window and Door Installation
Opting for quality window and door installation can elevate both the exterior and interior of your home. New windows can add natural light to your home, in addition to better regulating warm air in the colder months, and cool air in the summer.

When it comes to selling your home, first impressions matter – especially to prospective home buyers. Choosing to landscape your home will effectively boost your home’s curb appeal, but you don’t need to go all out to get the result you’re looking for. Making a walkway to the front door of your home, planting, maintaining your front lawn, and removing fallen leaves can make all the difference.
