Even if you aren’t selling your home, we all want our homes to look great inside AND out. Some of the issues preventing us from having homes with beautiful curb appeal are glaring and obvious but it’s easy to overlook others – especially when our homes are something we look at every day.
Think about your roof, chimney, gutters, windows and trim. What does your driveway look like? How about your front door? Perhaps you need a new paint job, a few simple repairs, or maybe some landscaping. If you’re selling your home, your real estate agent can be a valuable source of advice on how to make your home look as appealing as possible from the first moment a prospective buyer sees it.
