NEW YORK – April 30, 2012 – First impressions matter, especially when it comes to selling a home.

A home’s curb appeal – how its exterior looks to a buyer from the street – can either provide an inviting enticement for a prospective buyer or produce a negative impression.

Several websites offer a host of information for improving the curb appeal value of a residential property. Here are a few with good insights:

• Bankrate.com: Covers eight tricks to improve the curb appeal of a home.

• Good Housekeeping: Lists five ways to boost curb appeal.

• HandyAmerican.com: Serves up extensive list of home improvements to maximize a home’s curb appeal.

• Home Gain: Offers spending considerations and guidelines for remodeling a home.

• Kiplinger.com: Spotlights curb appeal beautification options for free, $100 and $500.
