Curb Appeal Is Key

curb-appealCurb appeal remains the standard. A Michigan State University study estimated that good landscaping adds 6 percent to 11 percent to the eventual sales price of a home.

Ways to Spruce Up Your Listing’s Curb Appeal

  • Make it green.
  • Trim trees and shrubbery. Overgrown branches hide a home’s good looks.
  • Mulch everything. Mulch gives flowerbeds visual appeal.
  • Edge the flowerbeds so everything look neat.
  • Powerwash the siding, sidewalks and patios to get rid of all the winter grunge.
  • Plant a garden to brighten up the look.
  • Ensure both the front door and storm door are in good condition
