The ‘For Sale’ sign is up and viewings will be scheduled soon. Now’s the time to add the finishing touches to how your home looks when seen from the street – by boosting its curb appeal. Improving curb appeal needn’t cost a lot – it’s just about making smart changes.

A lick of paint on the front door, fence and gate can lift and brighten the appearance of your property -it is also anearly indicator of what the rest of home might look like – first impressions are critical!

That lawn that you won’t miss – mow it! A tidy, well presented garden with trimmed hedges and well cared for plants and shrubs will inspire buyers. Flower boxes, hanging baskets and a few colorful plants can also make your property stand out – all for just a few dollars.
