Increasing Curb Appeal

When a potential buyer arrives at your home for a showing, your home had better be dressed for success.  If their first impression of your home is one that hints to your house being less than well-kept, it isn't likely that they'll be following up with an offer.

My theory is that if your home has less than average curb appeal, the buyer immediately has a bad impression.  So, if your home does not blow them away on the inside, you have no hope of getting the buyer to break away from that first impression.

On the other hand, if your curb appeal is outstanding, there is far less that the inside of your home has to do to get the buyer into a positive frame of mind.

First impressions are everything!  Take some time in the next few weeks to dress up the outside of your home.  Spread fresh mulch, trim bushes, clean the walkways, touch up paint, spray for weeds, and be sure the lawn is kept at a presentable length.  Those are easy and cost-effective ways to give your home a makeover.

The article linked below is for the more ambitious folks that are looking to put a little something extra into their landscaping this summer.  Enjoy!

Take care,
