More kerb appeal hints

Additonal hints for great kerb appeal.

Buy a new doormat. Not a cheesey one with welcome or beware of the dog on it, but a plain new doormat.

Check the gate shuts and closes. You'd be surprised how often you just don't notice the state of your own gate! Make sure it doesn't squeak. A fresh coat of paint on gates and fences can make all the difference.

If you've got hanging baskets then please water them! Nothing worse than dead plants hanging by your door.

Remove any stickers from the windows of bedrooms. And avoid garish curtains too. Go and stand across the street and look at your house. Does it need something doing to it to make it look smarter? Does your front door need a lick of paint?

Don't leave these things till after you've had viewings. Do them before!
