CURB APPEAL MATTERS

In real estate, as in other things, you don't get a second chance to make a good first impression. That first impression could mean the difference. Use the following suggestions to help ensure your property will be appealing to people shopping for a home or just driving through the neighborhood. These little things often make the biggest impression!

~ Keep the lawn mowed and the shrubs trimmed; remove dead plants.
~ Repair cracks in the foundation, chimney or walkways; resurface the driveway if needed.
~ Repaint window casings, shutters, or doors, as needed.
~ Store garbage, debris, lawn mowers, and hoses out of sight.
~ Keep the garage door closed.
~ Wash the windows.
~ Clean the home exterior, sidewalks, and pavement - it's incredible what a powerful pressure washer can do.
~ Make sure your front door & porch are clean.
~ Keep the pool immaculate.
~ Make sure the front door opens and shuts smoothly and the doorbell functions.
