Thanks to Tom Benisch of State Farm for this episode of Tips from the Pros on pool safety.

Dreaming of a more leisurely, escape-worthy backyard? For many, that dream includes a swimming pool — either above-ground or in-ground — or a hot tub. Plenty of American homeowners already live that dream every day.

3 Surprising Things That Affect Curb Appeal

Adding curb appeal will help sell your home faster.
Curb appeal is an important aspect of selling your home.

Thanks to Clean Sweep for this episode of Tips from the Pros about curb appeal.

One of the most critical parts of a house is evaluated before the car is put in park—the exterior. Investing in curb appeal is an excellent decision, as it ensures the home makes a great first impression and has been shown to recoup the most value of almost any project.
