Selling Your Home? Real Estate Sales Tip #1

5 Ways to Improve Curb Appeal on the Cheap!

Curb appeal is important. When the outside turns off buyers, they may never bother to look at the inside of a home. An investment of as little as a few hundred dollars can make a huge difference in the appearance of an exterior.

Here are some simple but effective suggestions:
-Wash the windows and replace any cracked or broken panes.
-Put a fresh coat of paint on siding, downspouts, and doors.
-Fill cracks in the driveway and walks.
-Trim bushes to below window height. Edge the lawn.
-Fertilize the lawn and plant blooming flowers. Put potted plants in strategic places.
