While staging and cleaning up your interior is important, it may be equally as important to clean up outside. Touch up chipping paint on porches and front doors, hang modern house numbers, power-wash the siding, spend a few dollars on colorful flowers, and trim back overgrown bushes and tree limbs. You can also make a big impact by staging your front porch with some outdoor furniture if the space allows. Make sure your pride in ownership translates into your yard, as well as inside. First impressions can easily make or break a showing!
