Have you ever driven up to a restaurant and your first impression was disappointing ? Perhaps the windows looked dark and gloomy, the facade was worn and unattractive or for some reason it just didn't look like a tempting place to eat ? 

 

It could still be a fantastic restaurant - a real gem. But, your first impression has soured your anticipation. If you still walk through the front door, it will likely be with the expectation of being disappointed. 

 

This scenario often plays out in the Real Estate market as well. 

 

A buyer drives up to a home for sale and quickly forms an impression based on what he sees "from the curb". That's why you'll hear real estate experts talk about the importance of "curb appeal". It's one of the most important sellling points of a property. 

 

If you plan to put your home on the market, you obviously want your home to look as atttractive as possible from the street. Fortunately, there are many simple things you can do to improve curb appeal. 

 

For example, you can trim shrubs and hedges, plant flowers, clean the walk way and driveway, paint the front door and garage door, and clean the exteriors of the windows. All these projects are relatively easy and inexpensive. Yet, each can make a dramatic improvement to how your home looks at first glance. 

 

Don't be like the great restaurant that's hidden behind an unkept facade. Make sure your curb appeal relfects the overall value of your property.
