Exterior Tips

Lawn: The yard should be neatly mowed, raked, and edged.

Trees/Shrubs: Should be pruned and shaped to compliment the property.

Flowers: Consider adding seasonal flowers.

Sidewalks/Driveways: Should be swept and washed to remove debris, dirt, and stains. Cracks should be repaired and patched.

Painting: Check the home for any needed maintenance just as a buyer would. Repaint or touch up as necessary. You can't find a better investment when you are selling your house! Don't let the outside turn buyers off before the inside turns them on.

Doors/Windows: All doors and windows should be in good working order. Clean and paint doors if necessary, wash all windows and replace any broken or cracked window panes. Screens should be free of any tears or holes. Inspect all locks to ensure that they are functioning properly.

Roofs/Gutters/Downspouts: Check for loose or missing shingles. Clean out gutters and downspouts. Touch up peeling areas on gutters.
