" With fall approaching (that summer did go quickly didn't it?), it's time to assess your curb appeal. Take a look at your home from across the street. How does it look? Does it appear neat and well maintained? It's a great time to clean up the annuals that might be past their prime, trim all those hedges, bushes and trees and maybe plant something to add fall colours to your garden. Why is it so important to ensure the exterior of your home looks great? Studies show that 22% of people make a decision as to whether or not they will buy a home based on curb appeal. Freshly painted exterior and garage doors, replacing that rusty mailbox and the outdoor fixtures will certainly help add that extra appeal for a minimal amount of investment. No time to do that? A professional stager/colour consultant can help to pick out the colours and get the job done. That way you will have time to enjoy your home and have it ready to go when you are ready to list with JoAnn."
