Tips for the exteriors of your home:
- Cut your lawn weekly while showing your home. Rake leaves and sweep the sidewalk when the house is to be shown. You may also want to plant more flowers or use potted plants to give more color and life to your landscaping.
- Paint or clean the front door. Also make sure there's a neat door mat in the front entrance.
- Replace cracked window panes, if any.
