Your home at a glance

Have you ever driven up to a restaurant and your first impression was

disappointing? Perhaps the windows looked dark and gloomy, the façade

was worn and unattractive or for some other reason it just didn’t look like a

tempting place to eat.

It could still be a fantastic restaurant – a real gem. But, your first impression

has soured your anticipation. If you still walk through the front door, it will

likely be with the expectation of being disappointed.

This scenario often plays out in the real estate market as well.

A buyer drives up to a home for sale and quickly forms an impression based

on what he sees “from the curb”. That’s why you’ll hear real estate experts

talk about the importance of “curb appeal”. It’s one of the most important

selling points of a property.

If you plan to put your home on the market, you obviously want your home

to look as attractive as possible from the street. Fortunately, there are many

simple things you can do to improve curb appeal.

For example, you can trim shrubs and hedges, plant flowers, clean the

walkway and driveway, paint the front door and garage door, and clean the

exteriors of the windows. All these projects are relatively easy and

inexpensive. Yet, each can make a dramatic improvement to how your

home looks at first glance.

Don’t be like the great restaurant that’s hidden behind an unkept façade.

Make sure your curb appeal reflects the overall value of your property.
