Dollar for dollar, no improvement has more impact on the future sales price of your home than dollars spent enhancing its exterior, also known as Curb Appeal. You’ve seen it on all the TV “fixer upper” shows, curb appeal is what brings attention to your home and many times can help raise its value!
Luckily for you, it’s also one of the easiest places to make a swift impact. A coat of paint, some landscaping improvements, shutters and planter boxes, neighborhood-appropriate fencing, and a decent lawn guy are all affordable fixes that will do wonders for the foot traffic you get when your home is on the market. And we all know once a prospective buyer is in the door, anything can and usually does happen. That doesn’t mean interior improvements and amenities don’t matter, because they do, but creating a wow factor before a prospective buyer steps out of his or her car is the biggest bang for your buck you can buy.
