A property's curb appeal very naturally can make a great impression when selling your home. If everything out front is in perfect reapir from the mailbox to house numbers to the walkway and landscaping, buyers will think "this house is obviously well cared for" according to Realtor Magazine. These little things can be just as important as tending to yard work, trimming trees and shrubs, etc.

Other tips include: keep your front door looking good- this may include a fresh coat of paint as long as it compliments the home. If necessary, replace it! Windows should be clean! Garage door- see front door tips! Front porch- don't overlook "selling" your front porch with a swing, bench,etc. as long as it doesn't look cluttered. Also, keep it swept and clean. Driveway- Is is covered with cracks and oil stains? Repair and clean if at all possible. After dark- evening curb appeal matters. Place outdoor lights near the entrance or around trees/shrubs. Put them on a timer. This will give a warm glow from the curb.

Follow these tips to increase your chances of selling your home!
