We’ve been talking about your home’s curb appeal. What does it look like from the street? There are upgrades and repairs that can really help the sales effort. Cut the lawn at least twice a week and keep the hedges and shrubs trimmed. Walkways should be swept frequently and plant colourful flowers to add accents. The appearance of exterior siding is important, too. A new coat of paint or a pressure wash is worth the extra expense. Buyers always notice the roof – is yours in good shape, or does it need de-mossing or even replacing? Don’t forget to clean all windows and pressure-wash the decks. Finally, the front door provides the first impression. Install a new one if necessary, or repaint the old one and replace the hardware. A good impression on the outside will help to get buyers inside!
