Curb appeal should be important to all homeowners, not just the ones looking to sell their homes. Attractive views from the street can help sell your home as well as extend your property’s value and the neighborhood’s.
Curb appeal is described as the visual attractiveness of a house as seen from the street. This applies to the exterior of the home as well as the landscaping, outdoor fixtures, sidewalks, and driveway. Check out this selection of Curb Appeal Inspo!
