Curb Appeal Checklist

Inspect the outside ground. Remove any building materials, scrap wood, discarded household items, etc. from the property. Store garbage cans in the garage.

Curb appeal is key. Would you believe that the red front door remains popular; however, yellow has become quite popular too. Likely because of the gray tones that are a favorite now. In addition to proper grooming of the lawn and shrubberies, add color to the landscaping and freshen up the much. Turn the front porch into an area where people imagine themselves relaxing on a nice Spring afternoon. Add a bistro set that complements the color of your front door. Add hanging plants sparingly because you don’t want to attract insects. Do the same for the deck or patio. Make it look like an oasis. The curb appeal only starts at the front. It should cover the perimeter of your home. So, when buyers pull up, they are wowed, when they view the home’s interior they are wowed, when they decide to look at the backyard, they are wowed and when they walk back to the car, they remain wowed.
