Today we’d like to talk about something that is imperative when selling your home, especially in today’s competitive market. Curb appeal when selling your home is critical. When someone drives by your home, you want to make sure that you create the desire for them to want to step inside and take a look at your home. I think curb appeal is dictated by gardening, landscaping and the way you maintain your grass; if you live in a desert area or in an area where you’re dealing with rocks or landscaping, you want to have nice, well-kept landscaping. You also want to de-clutter your yard and driveway; don’t leave any garbage lying around or have a lot of cars sitting in the driveway. Essentially, you want to create a showpiece for your prospective buyers. Curb appeal is crucial to getting people to look at the interior of your home. If your home doesn’t have curb appeal, it can turn away prospective buyers. If they don’t have a good feeling just from looking at the exterior of your home, they’re probably not going to want to waste their time looking inside.
