Getting your house ready to go on the market requires a vision of identifying how your house will show best to potential buyers. Here are four simple and cost effective improvements you can make that will have a major impact. 1. Add some trees/plants: Want to add some curb appeal to your home and feel better when you’re pulling into the driveway after work? Or walking out onto that backyard patio?
