How to Create Quintessential Curb Appeal
While we proudly keep and manicure our yards, when it comes to impressing a home buyer, we may need to go beyond the norm. We should start with cutting back hedges and trees. Flowers here and there help. We can add interest with contrasts in ground cover and keep edging impeccable. There’s a lot we can do to enhance the entrance area or walkway, such as with accent lighting.
How to create quintessential curb appeal includes taking pictures of your home from the street. Step away by the curb and take a good long look at it yourself. Put yourself in a buyer’s shoes that would be driving up and seeing it for the first time. A lot will strike you when you look at it from that perspective.
