You can potentially add $40,000-$100,000 in value by improving the facade of your home! (source: www.domain.com.au) It is the first thing that potential buyers will see so it is worthy of the attention. I know that when I have been house hunting over the years, there were multiple times when I almost didn't get out of the car because the front of the house was so overgrown with vegetation and in need of a big clean up. What did I do - I pointed it out as an area that would have to be 'fixed' (an expense for the buyer), hence adding to the list of my other items aimed at negotiating the price down. There are multiple things that can be done and the exact improvements will vary depending on each home but there are some common simple things that can be considered.
