Professional “staging” may include the exterior, but if you’re doing it all yourself, try the five things outlined in this video.
1 – Landscape & 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 & Repairs
Small visible problems can become large mental objections and change how someone feels about your house.
Fix ‘em beforehand.
4 – Pets
Some people have allergies and concerns.
Time for Fido to visit a friend.
You weren’t including him with 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’ so you can present the best first impression to the real ones.
