The aesthetics of your home’s exterior affect potential buyers. Curb appeal will either spark the buyer’s interest or discourage them from viewing the property. Improve curb appeal before selling by following these easy steps.

2. Replace Exterior Fixtures
Many homes have outdated outdoor lights, faucets and door knobs that need to be update. Updating these features modernizes your home’s exterior and creates a fresh look. This is a cost-effective way to modernize the exterior.
3. Power Wash the Exterior
Winter can take a toll on your home’s exterior. For many homes, power washing it creates a brighter, fresher look.
4. Clean Up Your Garden
After the winter your flower bed needs some TLC. After pulling weeds, place a weed control fabric across the surface before planting any new flowers or bushes. Then, cover the weed control fabric with a good amount of fresh mulch.
