Use Curb Appeal to Your Advantage

Selling a home can be a lengthy process, but increasing home value and lessening the selling period may be easier than you think. Curb appeal plays a large role. The better the curb appeal, the higher the selling price, and less time the house spends on the market.

Freshen Up

Washing the front of your home is a quick and easy way to improve curb appeal. Warm, soapy water and a soft bristled brush can remove dirt and mildew from your home. This simple step can remove years of dust, giving your home a fresh face that will appeal to potential buyers. The following listing, 1310 Armstrong, Longmont, CO is an excellent example of how a “fresh face” can make all the difference when it comes to curb appeal.
