As we all know, the first impression is the last impression. The statement doesn’t only fit to measure the personality of a person but it is also applicable to all the things which have an outer look. Likewise, before entering the house we must look at the outer appearance of the house. If it is not attractive and maintained, it gives an impression that the inner look of the house would also be the same as outside, dirty and messy.
