  Thinking about selling your home? Step outside and look at the first impression your home is giving. Most buyers are looking at homes online first, and lack of curb appeal in that first photo could prevent potential buyers from seeing your listing. You can increase your curb appeal by doing some of these 7 things. 

1)Landscape- mow the grass, weed the yard, and trim the tree. If there is room in your budget, think about planting some fresh plants with flowers. 

2) Power wash- rent a power washer to clean up the exterior of the house, the walk way, and the driveway. 

3) Clean windows- clean the inside and outside of the windows so your home is sparkling. 

4) Color to the front door- add a bright contrasting color to your front door to bring life to your entry way.

5) Repaint the exterior- freshen up existing paint or try a new color for the exterior. Look at your neighbors and get a feel for what would suit your home. 

6) Paint the Trim- if you can't paint the exterior, think about painting just the trim or windows in an accent color to make the house pop

7) Replace fixtures- out of date lights can seem unappealing. Even replacing housing numbers with a modern font can do wonders for curb appeal. 

8) Add outdoor lighting- add lighting to a pathway and spot lights to special features can be very easy be done in one afternoon with solar lights.
