If you’re looking to sell your house in the near future, it’s a good idea to give a paving company like Prime Paving Contractors a call. Unfortunately, we’re not going to buy your house from you, but we do want to help you get more money for it, and a brand-new asphalt or concrete driveway is an easy way to increase your home’s value.

As we all know, first impressions are key. That’s why curb appeal – the general exterior attractiveness of a home – significantly affects the value of property. Smart Money magazine estimates that investing 5% of your home’s current value into jazzing up the appearance –  by paving the driveway or getting some landscaping done – can increase your home’s value by 15%. Luckily, your favorite Atlanta paving company knows curb appeal.

A fresh driveway will not only increase your home’s value, but it can also decrease the amount of time your property sits on the market. You could have the finest mansion in all of metro Atlanta, but if your driveway is a mess of loose gravel or is full of cracks and weeds, that’s all potential buyers will notice. This is important, because when people think about buying a house, they also think how much additional work it needs. By getting an asphalt resurfacing before you put your house on the market, you increase your odds of a quick turnover. Buyers are more likely to chose a house that requires less work when making their final decisions, especially if they’re stuck between two properties.

Before you put your house on the market, be sure to talk to Prime Paving Contractors. A little investment in your driveway will increase your home’s value, so give us a call today.
