Make Sure the front yard is cut and clean.
Keep the grass cut, trimmed, and edged. No one wants to see a jungle waiting for them when they pull up and remember you're trying to make a good first impression. If the front yard has trash or is unkempt, buyers will immediately feel like the rest of house is not taken care of either.
Make sure the front porch and or doorway and the walkway leading up to the house is tidy and uncluttered.
Again edging the walkway if there is one goes a long way toward a neat appearance. If you have furniture at or near the entrance, make sure it's clean and presentable.
Make sure the exterior and siding of the homes for sale is clean.
No matter what type of siding is on the house, it can get dirty. Be sure you pressure wash the exterior of the home before you put the home up for sale. After it has been listed it's too late.
Take a good look at the front door and determine if it looks good.
If the front door it not a flattering color or if it has faded or the paint is damaged, you should really put a fresh coat of paint or two on the door. It's all a part of the curb appeal, so a fresh coat of paint can go along way toward making you home for sale in Blythewood, SC more inviting to would be buyers.
Along the same lines as trimming and edging, be sure any and all plants, shrubs, or bushes are neatly trimmed and shaped as well.
Properly placed bushes and shrubs can go a long way toward improving the looks of your landscaping, but that will backfire if they are not properly maintained. If bushes hang or block walkways or cover windows, they really need to be trimmed back and cut to a nice level height.
