A first impression is everything. When a prospective buyer sees the first picture of your home or drives into your driveway, there’s an immediate impression and “feeling” that they have. Is it excitement? Warmth? Being impressed? Or is it doubtful? Skeptical? Are they already creating a list of things that are wrong? Your curb appeal and outside of your home is essential.
