How can Landlords increase curb appeal?
Jeff Sarty: A landlord can increase their curb appeal by ¬ making sure that everything is neat and tidy. The first impression that a renter will see is like based on that big impact. So making sure your garden beds are nice and edged, have nice clean line, there is some nice fresh mulch in the gardens, make sure that all the plants are still alive and not dead and weeds and stuff everywhere. So it’s really making sure that everything is looking as good as it can. Make sure there isn’t any big dead shrubs and just kind of trimming everything back so it will have that nice tidy look to it.
