Curb Appeal (1).png

The first impression of a home from the street is what motivates you to look further.

Tips to spruce up your curb appeal:

1. Grab a friend. Make a list of work for the exterior. Ex. torn screen, cobwebs, chipped paint. A 2nd set of eyes helps.
2. Mount house numbers in an area of visibility that match the style of your home.
3. Look Up. Repair or replace the roof to remove any major expense for buyers.
4. Walk Around the house. Check out rain gutters, shutters, foundation footings, deck boards, plant beds. Remove, repair or refresh.
5. Stuff. Bikes, yard equipment? Put in garage or stack in corner. Try to put things out of site.
6. Clean. Rent a pressure washer. Wash everything, deck, siding, driveway, walkways. 
7. Lighting. Replace old/outdated lighting fixtures on front door/porch.
8. Paint. If you are not going to paint the entire exterior, refresh doors-trim-shutters. Touch up where needed.
9. Landscape. Trim along drive/walkways, install edging, trim plants, mulch beds, use potted plants, repair driveway, patio or sidewalk cracks, replace missing bricks.
10. Plant. Add color to flowerbeds. Add potted greenery or flower pots to front door area.

Make buyers want to view the interior of your home!
