There are many reasons people decide to sell their home. For some it might be a growing family or just a need for more space or perhaps the owners are just moving to another area.

What curb appeal means is that when someone drives by your house, from the curb it looks like a nice place to live. Over time, while you may not see the changes the look of the front of your home may need a bit of a refresh.Don’t think that means breaking the bank, you can make your front yard and your home look much better for a lot less than you are thinking. A good place to start is with the landscaping, cut back shrubs and trees, if you were considering replacing the lawn with sod, you may consider just tilling it up and reseeding it. If you have flower beds, ensure they are clean well maintained, replacing things like beauty bark as needed.
If you have shrubs that don’t look as good as they used to you might just choose to dig them up and replace them.

Make sure you start with the lowest setting and work your way up you do not want to accidentally remove paint from the exterior of the home.
