Curb Appeal: It Starts with Cutting Back Overgrowth

Last summer, I sold a really great single family home in Gainesville’s community of Virginia Oaks to some first time buyers.  It was a colonial with a great floor plan and a fantastic back yard.  Even had an inground pool.  Problem was, the beauty of this home was not readily apparent.  There were mature trees and shrubs covering the home from view as we approached. 

 

Driving by this Virginia Oaks home one year later you can actually SEE the house.  To begin, the shrubs on either side of the garage were taken out entirely.  Second, the lower limbs on the large tree on the right were removed.  Some smaller flowers were planted to accent the right side of the garage.  And I personally think having the American Flag hanging on the side of the garage gives just enough splash of color. 

 

If you want the most money for your Gainesville, VA home, give it a great face. Start getting your curb appeal in order by cutting the overgrowth that keeps buyers from SEEING your home.
