Beyond having a structurally sound house with good mechanical systems, not much is more important than the curb appeal. Why? It's simple, if buyers don't like what they see from the curb they are not getting out of the car. I can't tell you how many times I have been out showing a houses and when we pull up to a house the buyer says, I don't need to see the inside." The inside could have been the most stunning house my buyer would have seen the entire day. It could have been the perfect floor plan. But, because of the outside appearance the buyer pre-judged the interior.
Having a husband that is a landscape designer, curb appeal is particularly important to me. But, its also particular important to buyer. I also know that color sells. It sell the garden club and it sell the house. So, before listing your house clean up the lawn, spruce up the shrubs, plant seasonal color and mulch. Wash the front door, remove the cobwebs from the porch and power wash the sidewalks. It takes very little to create a big impact.
