The Importance of Curb Appeal

A large percentage of home buyers drive by a house before deciding to schedule a showing. Having good curb appeal can greatly increase your chances of selling your house quickly. Most buyers cannot visualize changes, and often won't take a second look at a house if the first look isn't appealing to them.

Start with these basic curb appeal tasks:

  • Kill mold and mildew on the house, sidewalks, roof, or driveway. Remove driveway stains
  • Stow away unnecessary garden implements and tools.
  • Clean the windows and gutters.
  • Pressure wash dirty siding and decks.
  • Edge sidewalks and remove vegetation growing between concrete sections and bricks.
  • Mow the lawn regularly. Get rid of weeds. Rake and dispose of leaves.
  • Trim tree limbs that are near or touching the roof.
  • A fresh paint job and new front door does wonders for any house.

The trick is to find the spots where improvements are needed, then follow through to complete the tasks as best you can.
