Curb AppealIf you are thinking buying a new home or selling yours, you may want to consider the power of “Curb Appeal”.  This simple fix can provide you with a sense of satisfaction every time you pull up to your home.

Even though the interior of the house is where you most of your time will be spent, updating the look of the outside will definitely increase the sell-ability of your home. Homes that have “Curb Appeal” may have an increased value, it may even help increase neighboring home values.

With a few cosmetic changes and possibly the addition of a small portico to the front will give it a whole new look which is pleasing to the eye and more enticing to a potential buyer.

Dress up the front entrance!

The focal point of your home is the front door, make a statement by adding a splash of color. Make sure your entry way is clean, the door hardware is polished and a welcoming swag or wreath that reflects the interior is hung.

Curb appeal may be the difference between a potential buyer deciding to take a closer look or just passing by.
