To a prospective buyer this is the first impression.Â Would someone take a look and keep on driving or want to see more?Â Nice curb appeal can go a long way.
Take a look at your yard.Â Is there cleanup to be done?Â Think weeding, raking up leaves, trimming back overgrown plants or replacing dead ones.Â Could your landscaping use a little updating?
Take a look at your house.Â Any cracks, hanging gutters or other exterior repairs to be done?Â Howâ€™s the paint?Â A fresh coat of paint can really brighten things up.
Howâ€™s the roof?
Take a look at the entry, front door and porch area. When walking up to your house is it inviting?Â Â Does entry need to be swept or cleaned?Â Howâ€™s your porch light?Â Is it bug-free?Â A potted plant or other dÃ©cor could be nice.
The way the exterior of your home looks sets expectations for what the interior will be like.Â Make the most of that first impression!
