Curb appeal will ensure that your home gets seen by the most prospective purchasers in a competitive housing market. Within seconds of seeing your home, buyers will have formed their opinion.

Here are five easy and inexpensive updates to boost your home’s curb appeal:

While making these decisions, you might decide to skip using a Buyer's Agent. Here's why this isn't a good choice:
