Your house gets only one chance to make a good first impression. That’s why “curb appeal” is one of the most critical points in selling. Buyers are apt to fall in love at first sight–or not at all. If your home lacks curb appeal, chances are the first impression will not be counteracted by the most perfect floor plan or the most tasteful interior. Spruce up the view of the house from the street, including lawn, shrubs, shutters, windows, front door, mailbox. Add potted flowers out front, a wreath on the door, new outdoor lighting fixtures–whatever will enhance your home’s “buy me” look.
