Curb Appeal

Looking to sell your home? Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate Dream Team member and outdoor design expert Carson Arthur shows us how important curb appeal is when making a lasting first impression.

First impressions are not being made at the front door anymore. In fact now it's all about curb appeal. Buyers are actually assessing your home from the moment they see the front yard. So what is your landscaping saying about your space? One really easy way to make a welcoming statement, put in some outdoor furniture in the front yard. Even the simple bench like this on the edge of a path in the garden under a shade tree makes a welcoming statement. Add a few decorative pillows and you've got impact. Remember, you want those buyers smiling before they get to the front door.
