5 ways to increase the value of your home (Step 2)

2. Exterior clean-up 

One of the most obvious, and yet generally forgotten tips, is to do a general tidy-up of the exterior. The basic fact is that the majority of potential buyers will judge a book by its cover, and the outside appearance of your house is therefore, just as essential as the inside. Overhanging trees and plants will not only drop leaves and create mess, but they will also shadow the yard, and portray a look of shabbiness. It’s cheap and easy to trim the trees and mow the lawn, and this will help to increase the value of the house.
