Daily Real Estate News  |  April 6, 2009  |   8 Ways to Spruce Up Your Listing's Curb Appeal
Staging a yard can give a home the all-important, buyer-pleasing curb appeal. Here are some suggestions that are both inexpensive and easy.
  • Make it green. Balancing the pH level and feeding the lawn lots of nutrients will give it a lush and healthy look.
  • Trim trees and shrubbery. Overgrown branches hide a home’s good looks.
  • Mulch everything. Mulch gives flowerbeds visual appeal.
  • Edge the beds. Edging makes everything look neat.
  • Powerwash the siding, sidewalks and patios. Power washing gets rid of all the winter grunge.
  • Plant annuals. Lots of geraniums, impatiens and petunias brighten up the look.
  • Plant a garden. If the Obama's can do it, so can everyone else.
  • Hang a hammock. It suggests life is easy.
