When selling:                                                                                                                                      

·         Improving curb appeal can add as much as 6-15% to your home's value and procure a sale up to 50% faster.  

Not selling?

·         Helps maintain the values of the properties in your neighborhood, adds to the overall enjoyment and pride you have in your home and makes for a good first impression.


 Where do you start? 


·         Clean out gutters

·         Wash all windows inside and out

·         Power wash siding, gutters, foundation, sidewalks, driveway, porch. Use a mold killing element


·         Hide trash cans and recycling bins

·         Stow away garden tools

·         Keep yard ornaments and yard décor to a minimum


·         Torn or sagging window screens

·         Any rotten or chipping paint

·         Fill in driveway cracks


·         Edge sidewalks and curbs

·         Trim low tree branches that block views of your home, ones touching roof and blocking windows.

·         Add inexpensive solar lighting to shine on trees, doors, architectural highlights or walkways  

Make it pop!

·         Repaint/re-stain the front door

·         Repaint shutters

·         Add a decorative doorknob/hardware

·         Paint/replace any exterior brass fixtures (bronze, brushed nickel or iron)

·         Invest in a welcoming front door mat

·         Add visible house numbers near the front door

·         Place decorative pots containing plants at front door… stay symmetrical and go yellow!

·         Hang a seasonal wreath

·         Add color the front corners of the yard, along driveways or walkways, and immediately in front of the house by planting flower beds.
