To the editor:
When looking at a home, I, too, believe that if the house looks grotesque, then the house might scare away potential buyers ("Curb appeal," J-W, Thursday). It also lowers the value of all the houses in that neighborhood. That said, no seller wants to lower his/her price on their house because someone else won't spruce up their house.
Anyone who is planning to sell should always think about investing in modernizing their house. Yet, curb appeal is one trick of the trade that does get overlooked. Also, the questions people should ask are to the point and exactly what the seller needs to look at when he/she has a house on the market. Great work on this article and I hope to see more interesting articles in the future.
