Why Curb Appeal Matters
 

First impressions matter. Adding curb appeal to your house not only makes it easier to sell, but it also gives your house that finished look that you can take pride in. Here are some of the most important things you can do to ensure that your home has maximum appeal from the curb:

Plant some Color
Spruce up your flower containers, window boxes and front beds with some colorful flowers for instant lift. Consider adding a small seating area on the porch or front yard. Adding cushions, candles and table décor will give a modern and fresh look to your home.

Paint or Replace the Front Door, Trim or Shutters
The front door is the main focal point and definitely worth the time and effort to repaint or replace. A well-lit front door makes a home look warm and welcoming, so install or update your front-entry lighting if needed. Pull the entryway together with fresh hardware – a doorbell, doorknob and shutters. Consider a new mailbox and a new welcome mat.

Install new House Numbers
New house numbers will spruce up your home's curb appeal, especially if your house has faded or dated house numbers, or if they're difficult to see. Consider the style of your house – traditional, transitional or modern – and create a harmonious or contrasting effect with new house numbers.

Pressure-Wash your Driveway
If you're eager to clean your oil-stained driveway and spruce up faded walkways, pressure-washing is a very cost-effective way to increase your curb appeal. Don't own one? They're available for rent for a day from a local home improvement store.

When in doubt, or for more specific direction, enlist the help of a professional landscaper, stager, or color specialist.

Testimonial
 
Tammy was the best agent my wife and I have ever worked with, and we have bought and sold quite a few houses. She was hard working, patient and extremely knowledgeable. She understood our unique situation and came up with solutions to help. I could not possibly give a higher recommendation than I give Tammy.
