To your porch… AND BEYOND! More Tips for a Successful Showing:

  • Welcome visitors with an inviting porch
    • Even if you have only a tiny stoop, make it say “welcome home” with a clean doormat, potted plants in bloom or seasonal décor and — if you have room — one or two pieces of neat porch furniture. Keep your porch lights on in the evenings, in case potential buyers drive by. Illuminating the front walk with solar lights is a nice extra touch, especially if you will be showing the house during the evening.
  • Boost curb appeal
    • This is something you always hear, and with very good reason. Many people thinking of touring your home will do a quick drive-by first, often deciding on the spot if it is even worth a look inside. Make sure your home is ready to lure in onlookers with these tips:
      • Power wash siding and walkways
      • Hang easy-to-read house numbers
      • Plant blooming flowers and fresh greenery or decorate seasonally (not too over-the-top)
      • Mow lawn, and reseed or add fresh sod as needed
      • Wash front windows
      • Re-paint or stain the porch floor as needed
