Are you planning to sell your home soon? If so, you will want to take a good look at the outside of your home and be sure that it presents as nicely as possible for a potential buyer. Most buyers will first view your home online, which means you will want quality photos done after you have prepared the outside of your home. Next, if the potential buyer lives locally, they will do a drive-by of your home. Is the exterior of your house ready to be viewed?

12 item checklist:

  1. Clean your entryway of all debris.
  2. Check your porch light(s); it’s the easiest thing to change out and offer a fresh look.
  3. Paint your front door, click here for instructions on the best techniques. If your house has shutters, do they need a new coat of paint as well? Keep in mind that your front door and shutter paint color do not have to match, but they should complement each other and go with the style of your home (and observe any Homeowners’ Association rules that may apply.)
  4. Do you need new hardware on your front door? If you plan to paint your door, this is a perfect time to remove and replace any hardware.
  5. Add a spotlight to illuminate a walkway, or add a featured focal point.
  6. Remove all toys, garden waste, etc.
  7. Plant beautiful seasonal flowers and mulch your beds.
  8. Trim your bushes and trees.
  9. Have your house and sidewalks power There should be no signs of mold!
  10. Seal your driveway.
  11. Add a new and inviting solid black Welcome mat.
  12. Add vibrant colored (ensure that they can be seen from the roadway) flowers to your entryway.
