(NewsUSA) - In the midst of today's soft housing market, and during a time when saving money is top-of-mind, many homeowners are embarking on small, do-it-yourself improvement projects around the home instead of extensive overhauls or making the move to a new home.

In fact, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry reports that many of today's homeowners, apparently reacting to current market conditions, are opting to undertake a series of "partial" improvement projects as their schedules, budgets and lifestyles evolve over time.

While many of these updates are intended to make the home's interior more functional and aesthetically pleasing, homeowners can also make simple improvements to the outside of their home. For example, homeowners seeking an added sense of security can take steps to increase their awareness of what is happening outside the house -- from the driveway to the doorway to the backyard patio or pool. Now, enhancing your knowledge of any movement on or around your property can also be a manageable DIY improvement project that any weekend-warrior can tackle in no time.
