Buyers can reject a home before they even step into it. Why? Curb Appeal. We are living in an HGTV generation and no one wants to be the "ugly duckling" of the neighborhood. Here are some time tested ways to improve your curb appeal:
Fresh Paint: A fresh coat of paint is usually one of the very best ways to boost curb appeal as it makes the porch look inviting and give the impression that you've been maintaining your home.
Landscaping: Landscaping generates an average of 215% return on investment! This is my Top Pick for Curb Appeal Enhancement. If it's not in the budget to spend money on landscaping, put some sweat equity into the home by edge the lawn, keep it green, rake the leaves, trim the bushes & bushes, and address the weeds.
New Front Door: A new front door helps give a great first impression of the home.
Pressure Wash the Walkway & Driveway: Keep the driveway stain-free & sidewalks clear! Power wash them even if you think you don't need it!
Mailbox: It's one of the first things buyers see. Painting, straightening, & replacing numbers are a few easy fixes.
Repair/Replace Garage Door: When potential buyers pull up into your driveway, it's one of the first things they see! Be sure it's in good shape!
