Front Walkway Improvements that Boost Curb Appeal


Your front walkway is one of the first sections of real estate a buyer will set

foot on when coming to see your home. So, it makes sense to make that

pathway to your front door as appealing as possible.


The obvious way is to make it as clean and clear as you can. Ensure there

are no obstacles in the way, such as overhanging branches, kid's toys, or

potted plants. What you want is a clear, unobstructed and pleasant walk to

your main entrance way.


If your walkway needs deeper cleaning, consider a powerwash. There are

special detergents available that are designed specifically for stone, asphalt

or cement walkways and other outdoor surfaces.

A deep cleaning isn't a major project. In most cases, the job can be done

within an hour. Yet, the result can be stunning.


If you're selling in the spring or summer, another way to make your walkway

look better is to add flowers or other plants along the sides. Don't overdo it.

You only need a few flowers or a couple of shrubs to make a big difference.

The great thing about adding a few flowers or shrubs is the impact they can

have on your entire frontage making it more attractive, and adding to your

home's overall curb appeal.


Making your walkway look better may seem minor, but keep in mind that

when buyers make their way to your front door, they're forming their first and

often most important impression of your property. The walkway plays a small

but important role in making it a good one.
