Curb appeal is key for home sellers

    First impressions are everything, particularly for individuals looking to sell their home. August has been designated National Curb Appeal Month, and while sellers will want to take note, all homeowners can learn a lesson or two about making their home more attractive from the street.

    Local realtor Susan Keller explains that keeping a neatly trimmed and edged yard is a first step in making your home stand out from others.

    Trimmed and edged lawns not only look nice, but also help to reduce weeds and improve a lawn’s overall health.

    Keller also adds that fertilized and watered grass will stay green and therefore be more attractive to passersby. Seasonal flowers that are in bloom, as well as manicured shrubs, add to the appeal of the landscape.

    In addition to making the lawn and gardens more attractive, attention should be paid to the home’s exterior. Rotting wood trim and broken shutters should be replaced.
