The Importance of Curb Appeal

Having great curb appeal is a must if you are trying to sell a home.  And some of the most dreary homes can be greatly improved with creative landscaping.  Take the before and after picture of the home below that we sold in Woodbridge, VA.  Which home would you consider buying?


The choice is clear.  The homeowners cleaned the siding, they repainted the shutters and the steps, they removed the storm door, and most importantly they hired a professional landscaper for the front yard.  And although a professional landscaper can be very expensive, there is nothing in this front yard that can't be done by a homeowner that is willing to put in a little bit of sweat equity.  The difference in the two pictures below is striking and it is the difference between a home buyer calling his Realtor and saying, "I want to see this house" and just clicking onto the next property.

The return on that small investment will be worth it.  If you are interested in selling and finding a Realtor that will help you sell your home at top-dollar, contact me and I will put you in touch with the best in the business.
