The exterior and curb appeal of a home tells you a lot about the character of the home. How well was the property maintained, was it properly cared for both inside and outside, is the landscaping up to date.
These are just a few pointers to keep in mind when looking at the exterior of a home. This also includes the side and back of the home. Many people enjoy a nice setting in their yard to relax. While the owners may not have had the same taste as you, is there plenty of room to make the changes to suit your liking.
These are all questions I like to ask as I show properties to my clients. If you are looking to buy or sell your home, I look forward to assisting you in every possible way. I am happy to sit with you at no cost to review your goals.
