Curb appeal is the idea that people will be much more liable to take a look at your house for sale if it looks good from the outside. If the house looks like the one in the picture, it could be pristine on the inside, but many buyers would never even pull into the driveway.

A friend of mine shared a link from Realtor.com with lots of great ideas for fixing up a house for maximum curb appeal. There are many fun things to do, such as adding grass (and mowing it), installing plantings of flowers, and putting in accent lighting. The article also points out that you will NOT get your money back if you’re landscaping just to sell. Hmm.
