You only get one chance to make a good first impression. Here are some easy, inexpensive ideas to help make that possible. Think about some of the first things you notice when seeing a home for the first time. Is the yard neat and free from weeds and debris. Are there any flower beds that could have some colorful flowers or ground-cover planted. If you have a mail box, is it in good repair? A fresh coat of paint or varnish does wonders. This also works for the entry door or screen door. This is especially true for families with children with lots of friends. Replacing the numerals on the exterior of the home with modern, updated styles takes a small amount of effort with great results. Lastly, stenciling the address numbers on the front curb helps first time visitors find your home easily for any type of celebration or in an emergency.
