Someone did this study and found out that bright doors increase curb appeal - especially red. I have personally found that having everything well trimmed and mulched with seasonal flowers is a great way to make a great first impression. ... more

Is your home listed for sale?? If so, you need to contact your Realtor. However, I have a feeling you're just referring to an old listing or the public records info on your property. If that's the case...why do you need to change the photo?? Most people on here are asking to have their photos REMOVED for obvious security and privacy reasons.

Keep in mind, this site is really just a marketing site for us agents, and it's basically a database of properties -- for sale, for rent, or just old public records. If your home isn't listed for sale, I'd ignore this website completely. It's notorious for inaccurate, outdated info. Frankly, I wouldn't waste your energy on it.

HI Jeffrey,
It will probably cost about $200 to power rake, and is a great investment in terms of adding curb appeal to your home, which will raise the value of your house. Contact me if you have more questions.

Celine Sanderson answered:
Honestly, if you're worried about the other high-end people with their nice houses, don't be. Metal roofs have so many pros compared to other expensive materials for roofs. You also said you have a green metal roof. Does it match anything else on your house? Sometimes to create a better curb appeal, you could paint the front door or sides of windows on the front of your house to make a cohesive matching house. Your neighbors would be jealous of your cute green accented house without costing your a fortune to replace the whole roof. I'd also recommend to get the metal roof inspected as well!

Jackson Willis answered:
First impressions are always important, but if the seller doesn't want to invest in it, you can't force anything. Beyond that, if there is a landscaping allowance, people will have a chance to hire a company they like and design things the way they want. Ultimately it won't matter that much what you do. If you have trouble selling though, you might want to change your strategy a bit.

It's important to match your neighbors, but I'd consider repaving with asphalt as well. It sounds like concrete isn't the best option for your slope of driveway and the climate. If you do use asphalt, though, you'll probably still need to repair or remove the concrete underneath. ... more
