Many buyers make decisions on a home based on the curb appeal. There is an assumption that the exterior condition of the home is indicative of the interior condition. Let your buyers get started with their evaluation on a positive note by ramping up your homes curb appeal. Tame the landscaping by trimming all the shrubbery to at least one foot below the windows and away from the walkways. Cut tree limbs to at least eight feet above the ground to allow easy passage. Re-edge beds and apply fresh pine straw or pine bark as needed. Mow the law at least three inches high to allow grass to develop strong roots. Replace the mailbox, house numbers and lighting as needed for a cohesive, updated look.

On the interior apply a fresh coat of light neutral paint throughout all of the rooms and hallways. Touch up baseboards as needed. Steam clean the floors. Remove clutter and empty closet floors. If buyers see substantial clutter, they will be left with the impression that the home has insufficient storage space. Check that all appliances are in working order including the HVAC system. Finally, board any pets during showings. If there are lingering pet or cooking odors, leave the windows open to allow the odors to dissipate.
