  1.  Give your entry a facelift with either a new coat of paint or a new front door.
  2.  Don’t forget to landscape your yard.  A well groomed lawn shows buyers that the home was taken care of.
  3.  Make sure all exterior lights are in working order and replace all outdoor light bulbs.
  4.  Wash all windows (inside and out).  You don’t want to take away from a great view with dirty windows!
  5.  Clean out your garage.  Consider getting a storage unit to store any non-essential items.
  6.  Depending on the climate in your area, add a pop of color by planting flowers.
  7.  Remove any lawn ornaments that you will want to take with you to your new home.
  8.  Replace a worn out welcome mat to welcome buyers as they tour the home.
  9.  Paint or replace the street numbers on the house, making them more visible.
  10.  Power wash any outdoor surfaces to give them a “like new” feel (siding, sidewalks, driveway).
