When it comes to real-estate, curb appeal is your greatest asset.  This can easily be enhanced by repaving your driveway or by chip sealing your driveway.  Indeed, nothing says buy my house like a well paved, sealed or chip sealed driveway.  So although repaving, sealing or chip sealing your driveway may seem like an unwanted expense upfront, it will most likely pay off in the long, not only if you plan to sell or even stay in your house for curb appeal, but also for safety concerns.
