If you want to add value to your home the first thing you should consider focusing on is your landscaping. Hire a professional to fix and maintain your lawn and sidewalk.

YOUR FRONT DOOR

This sounds like a simple one but it is very important. It is the point of entry for your home. Determine whether to replace it entirely or to just spruce it up a bit.

OUTDOOR LIGHTING

Outdoor lighting is a great way to showcase the gorgeous features of your home. It also illuminates dark spots and could deter potential thieves from targeting your home.

PRESSURE WASHING

This is an awesome and sure fire way to make your home look more beautiful. Over time dirt builds up on the outside of your home making it look shabby and less desirable.

Kurt has developed a unique system designed to turn renters into homeowners. Unlike most Realtors his initial focus is on the financial end of the transaction. This dynamic has allowed him to develop more buyers that were not previously in the market, which in turn leads to more listings being sold. While Kurt is constantly tweaking his programs to meet the needs of his clients, he is ever mindful that a home is not sold without a buyer. More times than not, a buyer that he turned into a homeowner.
