Seal Coating AFTER Cold Patch Repair?

Hello everyone,

I am currently doing a 'live in' flip where I'm almost done and ready to put it on the market. One of the last projects I have is my driveway. The garage concrete slab is about 2-3 inches higher than the settling asphalt apron.

My plan is to diamond cut out about 2 ft back and fill it with cold patch or possibly hot mix if I can get my hands on some. My only concern is curb appeal; if I coat the patch, will it still be very noticeable? How about if I seal it two times in that one spot? Any sealers super black compared to others?

The other option is just to leave it as is and pray no one sees it as a huge issue for the time being. Rest of the house is extremely updated now.

Thanks for your time,

It's always going to be very noticeable. If you make your cut very square in the entire patch is square and symmetrical it won't look bad however. It really depends on how noticeable it is to prospective buyers. Your best bet me just be to leave it and fix it if somebody puts that as a contingency on their purchase offer.

From the sound of it, even hot mix wouldn't work very well, let alone a cold patch. I think I'd leave it alone as well.
