7 Curb Appeal Mistakes to Avoid
Don't sabotage your home sale with outdoor decor that turns buyers off before they've even walked through the door.
Homes, like people, are often judged by the company they keep, says Rick
Hoffman, president and COO of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in
San Diego County and Temecula Valley. "Unfortunately, a
home with a less-than-tidy next-door neighbor or an adjacent vacant
home lacking in the lawn care department can have a negative effect on a
potential homebuyer. It's worth the effort to politely ask for some
neighborly support in keeping their lawn mowed, or even offering to lend
your own elbow grease," he says.
