Let's face it. If you're selling your home, you probably don't want to spend the time or money on a complete landscaping project. Luckily, you probably don't need to. There are a number of affordable ways to improve curb appeal and impress buyers who drive up to your home.
You can make a big impact by creating a more welcoming entrance. For example, paint the front door and frame, and place potted plants on either side.
You can also signficantly improve your curb appeal by not only mowing the lawn, but also pruning trees and shrubs.
Use a power washer to clean the walkways and driveway. A good cleaning can make them look almost new.
And, don't forget the front windows. Make sure window coverings look just as good from the outside as they do inside.
