How To Prepare The Outside For An Open House.

Professional “staging” may include the exterior, but if you’re doing it all yourself, try the five things.

1 - Landscape and lawn.

That’s the first impression, make it a good one.
Mow, prune, edge and get rid of junk!

2 - Paint And Clean!

You don’t have to do the whole house, but the front door and lintels should either be painted or cleaned.

3 - Leaks and Repairs

Small visible problems can become large mental objections and change how someone feels about your house.

Fix them beforehand.

4 - Pets

Some people have allergies and concerns.
Time for Fido to visit a friend.

You weren’t including him in the house anyway.

5 - Get Fresh Eyes

Have your realtor or a friend who’s willing to be candid tell you what you missed. Or pay a staging professional for a report.

We don’t really see familiar things well - so let them be your ‘test buyer’ and so you can present the best first impression of the real ones.
