One of the biggest curb appeals indicators is how well a home's yard work is done. Sometimes simply cutting the lawn more frequently can make a huge different.

Make sure that leaves, debris, and dust are kept off of your roof and gutters. One of the biggest reasons for this is that it enhances the durability of your roof and can add years to its life. Leaving debris on your roof not only decreases the longevity of your roof, it also provides an instant facelift for your home.
You should also clean out your gutters regularly. Leaves and dust can form a "mud" in gutters, which reduces their effectiveness. It also increases the likelihood of leaks and damage to your home from water overflow.
