Everything you've heard about curb appeal is true.
First impressions matter - expecially if your house is one of eight or nine a buyer has seen in one day.
Buyers will be more excited to look at the inside your home if the outside looks clean, charming and inviting.
Mow the lawn, trim the hedges, pull the weeds and plant some flowers, bushes or shrubs for the biggest impact - and be diligent about keeping your landscaping very well-manicured throughout the time your home is on the market.
Be sure to keep it low-key, relatively low maintenance and neutral, though. This is not the time to indulge your personal fantasies of living in an exotic paradise, unless that matches the existing look and feel of your home, nor is it the time to install a time-intensive English garden that buyers will love, but not want to take on.
Think clean, simple and elegant for the biggest boost in value.
