With the challenges of the pandemic, curb appeal is more important than ever. Buyers may be limiting their in-person tours or otherwise placing more emphasis on what they can see from the outside.  Consider these steps to make the most out of your listings:Start With the LawnA tidy lawn always looks appealing. Make sure it’s mowed and edged regularly, and consider filling in any bare spots with seed or fresh sod. Give Space to Shrubs and Trees Shrubs and trees near the house should accent the structure, not cover it. Cut them back to make space between the plants.Add Color and MulchPut colorful flowers in front beds and remove any weeds or dead plants. Pour a fresh layer of mulch on all beds and around trees. Consider Paint or RepairsTake a critical look at the front of the house. You may not care about a crooked shutter, rotten siding, or fading paint, but buyers will. Calculate what it would cost to make a few high visibility improvements.  Power Wash Hard SurfacesGet rid of dirt or mold on patios, walkways, and driveways with a pressure washer and some gentle soap. Remove ClutterPut away children’s toys, park vehicles in the garage or down the street, and store tools and yard equipment out of sight. Ask for Another OpinionYou can’t fix every flaw or please all potential buyers, but taking these steps will go a long way toward improved curb appeal.
