Preparing your Home for sale

Exterior

The condition of your home's exterior is most important when it comes to buyer appeal.

Litter picked up.
Cracked or broken window panes replaced.
Doorbell and door hardware in good repair.
Touch up trim paint on doors, window frames, fascia, etc.
Mow, edge and weed the lawn frequently until the home is sold.
Overgrown shrubbery should be cut back to show as much of the exterior as possible.
A low-cost investment in seasonal flowers or ground cover will add a personal touch.
Inspect the roof for necessary repairs and any visible broken shingles or tiles.
