The inside of your Anchorage house might be amazing, but if the outside looks like a mess, you will turn off buyers before they even set foot inside the house. Curb appeal really makes a difference to home buyers; here's why.     

Curb Appeal: Why It Makes a Difference for Home Buyers

Potential home buyers will view images of your home's interior and exterior online or in print ads before they come to your house. If they fall in love with the images of your beautiful home interior, and pull up to a house with an overgrown lawn or a dead tree, they will be turned off. They might even decide that your home is not worth the asking price because the lawn is an eyesore. In some cases, they might even drive away without setting foot in your home because the outside looks so bad.

To generate the most interest in your house, and receive the best possible offer, spend money on generating curb appeal. Basic landscaping services to mow the lawn, trim trees and shrubs, or plant flowers in garden beds don't need to cost a lot and can go a long way toward making the best first impression possible.

Remove junked cars, falling-down sheds, or anything else that is in the front yard and is in poor condition. If your home has an old fence that is rotting, peeling, or leaning, repair or repaint the fence. You wouldn't want a buyer to assume that the inside of the property was subject to the same neglect as the outside.
