The Importance of Curb Appeal

Spring is finally here! House sellers have been waiting a long time for the snow to melt. Seeing a little bit of (green) grass always goes a long way in improving the curb appeal of your home. There are other things you can do to help though too. If you're going up for sale, be the first one to have your yard cleaned, power raked and cut. Sweep all the sand and grit off your driveway. Don't stop there! Cleaning the exterior side of your windows won't take long but it probably hasn't been done in at least 6 months! Lastly, tidy up the flower beds or spruce them up by laying down mulch or stone. Every little thing helps and you want your home to stand out at every opportunity when it is for sale.

No matter what time of year it is, if your house is for sale, be on top of all lawn, driveway and sidewalk maintenance. Always keep a fresh cut lawn, rake frequently in fall, and keep the snow of your driveways and sidewalks.There are also plenty of companies you can hire to take care of this for you if you wish.

When a potential purchaser does their first drive-by - good curb appeal makes a big difference!
