The old adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” doesn’t apply to real estate. In fact, any good real estate agent will tell you that the exterior of your home greatly impacts its resale value.

Of course, a cleaned-up curb is not just for potential buyers. It also creates a warm and welcoming environment for you and your houseguests.

If sprucing up your outdoor space seems like an overwhelming — and expensive — undertaking, we’re here to help. Below are several items that cost less than $50 and will instantly boost your home’s curb appeal.

We do recommend checking prices around the web first, though, to be sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck.

Also, note that although the prices you see here will almost always be accurate, they sometimes differ slightly from what you will find at Amazon.
