Curb Appeal

 You must make a good first impression or some buyers may not even step inside! Take as much time as possible to update the outside of your home with the following tips...


  • Edge, Cut, and Water the lawn

  • Weed lawns and flowerbeds adding red mulch around trees or certain flowerbeds to liven things up and add more color
  • Check the doors and windows for peeling paint and then touch-up
  • Apply a fresh coat of paint to the front door as it's the first thing your future home buyer will touch!
  • Clean those gutters!
  • Are there any loose or damaged shingles? Take the appropriate action.
  • Liven your doorway up with potted plants!
  • If you have a front porch, clean it up, add some decorative furnishings, and take advantage of the extra square footage!

Overall, make sure your home is inviting!

Toni, a wonderful checklist in the curb appeal department. We have to work on the gutters in our own house here soon. Another idea is to clean all the windows to a sparkling level too.
