Underestimating curb appeal can be a big mistake for many homeowners. In this post, we will go through a few Do's and Don'ts.

Do's:

  • Windows and Trim - Clean all windows, inside and out and replace all broken glass, if any. If any paint seems to be peeling, scrape and repaint. 
  • Gutters - Repair and clean all gutters.
  • Roof/Chimney - Make sure that all shingles are intact and none are missing.
  • Wash Your House - Quick and simple wash could increase curb appeal immensely.
  • Landscaping - For free you can remove weeks and overgrown plants, trim tree branches and prune shrubs.

Don'ts:

  • Extreme Paint Colors - Always choose neutral colors.
  • Driveway Clutter - If there is a garage and there are cars parked in the driveway, buyers may think that there is not enough space to store everything. It can also cause for distraction in online photos.
  • Personal Possessions - Lawn ornaments, kids toys scattered in the yard could become a distraction.
  • Dead Gardens - We all know garden do not look the greatest out of season, but you can always make sure that it is free of dead leaves and plants.
