Selling Your Home? First Impressions Count!
Sprucing Up Driveways and Walkways

Selling your home? First impressions count!

When selling your home, don’t forget that the very first thing a potential buyer will see is your driveway or walkway. Be sure to make a great first impression by ensuring these important areas of your home are up to par! Maximize “curb appeal” by keeping your front lawn mowed, and driveway and walkway clean and free of cracks. You may even want to add some colorful flowers or shrubs to attract potential buyers. 

“A well-built, well-maintained asphalt driveway adds curb appeal to your house,” explains Steve Fradianni of M&S Paving and Sealing Inc., in Danbury, Conn. “It’s the first impression of your home that people see and it should look as good as it could. Asphalt driveways are easy to keep free of snow and ice in the winter and relatively dirt-free in the summer. They are economical, durable and long lasting, and they are easy to maintain.” 

Once potential buyers leave their car to head to the front door, the walkway begins to play an important role. That’s why it’s vital to make sure both the driveway and walkway are in tip-top shape.
