Add Curb Appeal to Your Chattanooga Home

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) gives many tips on how to prepare your home for sale.  The following list is a great list of items to do on the outside of your home to improve the curb appeal.  The way the home looks on the outside determines whether a home buyer will book an appointment to see your home or even look at the interior photos of your home.  Here are NAR's curb appeal tips:

Trim bushes and branches so they don’t block windows or architectural details.
Set a pot of bright flowers (or a small evergreen in winter) on your porch or front walkway.
Install new, matching locks and knobs on your front door.
Repair any cracks or holes in the driveway, and clean oil spots with degreaser and a steel brush.
Edge the grass around walkways and trees.
Stow your garden tools and hoses out of sight, and clear kids’ toys from the lawn.
Buy a new mailbox.
Upgrade your outdoor lighting.
Purchase a new doormat for outside your front door.
Clean your windows, inside and out.
Polish or replace your house numbers.
Mow your lawn. Also, turning on the sprinklers for 30 minutes before the showing will make ?the whole yard sparkle.
Place a seasonal wreath on your door.
