Make a great first impression. You’ve heard it before–it’s all about curb appeal. Make a statement with a pretty front door, great landscaping and updated paint colors. If your shutters are sunfaded, paint them. If your front windows need cleaned, clean them. Add pots of flowers to your front porch or spruce up outdoor furniture with new pillows or cushions. Be sure that when the potential home buyers step out of their cars that your home makes a great first impression.

Take advantage of daylight. Summer sunshine lasts well into the evening. Remove dark or drab draperies from window and let natural light filter into your home. Keep window blinds open to maximize the light and airy feeling that summer sunshine provides.

Expand your outdoor living space. Whether it is a patio, pool deck, screened in porch or deck facing the woods or lake, add pops of color with flowers and comfortable furniture to show potential home buyers the beauty of your outdoor living spaces. Add lighting so that the spaces are accented even after the sun sets.

Eliminate clutter. Store your daily mail and office paperwork out of sight. Remove personal family photos from the walls and replace them with art. Keep the home free of personal items that may distract the home buyers from seeing it as their potential new home.

Grow your garden green. Now is the time to maximize on the “wow” factor of your landscaping by professionally landscaping your flower beds and gardens as well as your lawn. Be sure plant materials are trimmed and in good shape. Utilize summer’s color by planting annuals or adding pots with flowers to give pops of color throughout your landscaping.
