When selling your home do not forget the curb appeal.

When you are selling your home you want people to want to come in and take a look at the inside of the home. But if the outside of the home has not been taken care of very well then you will have people slow down take a look at the outside and keep on going because they do not like the outside of the house.

How can you keep the buyers from driving on by your place?

Go out, from across the street and take a really good look at your home.

* is the yard well keep up, no weeds in the flower bed, lawn is mowed and edged, shrubs and trees are trimmed so that you can see the house.
* no peeling paint on the house.
* things that need to be repaired are repaired.
* make sure that the door bell works, the door does not squeak when it is opened, the hard ware works as it should.
* clean the outside of the house with a pressure washer so that the outside is clean.
* are the side walks and drive way in good repair?
* add color to the yard with flowers.

Are you looking at your home as a buyer would look at your home. If so what impression do you get from your home when you look at the outside of the home?

If you see things that need to be changed, change them, fix them, make it look the best that you can.

This is a video that gives even more ideas to make your curb appeal look its best.

Improving your home’s curb appeal

Here are four things that need to be done on the outside of your home before you put it on the market.

* Make sure that all the repairs are done outside.
* Clean the outside of the house, windows and doors.
* Do the yard work, no weeds in the lawn or flower beds.
* Add colorful flowers and mulch to your yard to draw attention to the yard and house.

If you choose to paint the house. Paint it colors that a lot of people will like. You want as many people as possible to fall in love with your home so that you can sell it quickly and for your asking price or higher.

We hope that you getting a quick sale of your home for the price that you are asking for it or more. Improving your curb appeal is one thing that will help with this task.
