They say first impressions last. And for real estate properties, that first impression is the curb appeal. No matter how gorgeous your home looks inside, if it looks neglected outside, the value of your home in buyers' minds will drop. In fact, according to the National Association of Realtors®, improvements on a home’s curb appeal can give you more than a 75% return on investment. This is the highest ROI the organization has seen. Properties like Charlottesville equestrian estates usually have big plots of land to take advantage of. When your home looks good and well taken care of, buyers will want to learn more. In addition, potential buyers of horse farms are usually just as concerned about their horses as they are about themselves. They will be looking at the condition of the barns,...
