Add curb appeal to your home

Add curb appeal to home when selling

If you're trying to sell your home, making the home look attractive to potential buyers should be a main priority. Here are some tips from Better Homes and Gardens to help improve curb appeal and drive potential buyers to your property.

Your top priority should be cleaning the front of your home as much as possible. Once you're finished with the general cleaning, stand back and determine what needs to be fixed or upgraded. You should also inspect light fixtures and doorways for symmetry.

Pay attention to details like the mailbox and outdoor décor to make the house more aesthetically pleasing. Some buyers may want to plant things outside the home, so sprucing up a garden - or even creating one - could help your home sell.

Be sure to inspect paint, fencing and gutters for signs of aging or defects from being exposed to nature. Even the driveway should be examined to make sure it's in good condition.
