I know it’s cliche, but you really never get a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression, so take a few minutes and a few bucks and make a great 1st impression!
Boost #1: Front door
Clean all of the cobwebs out and givie it a fresh coat of paint. Maybe even brighten it up by painting it a brighter-than-usual color, like red or blue. Pick a color that will stand out but also complement your home’s exterior. Be sure to ask permission from your HOA, if you have one.Keep in mind people stand at your front door while waiting to come in and they look around the whole time they are waiting.
Boost #2: Highlight your front porch
Many homeowners use their backyards for outdoor living and forget about their front porches. Even if you personally never sit on your front porch, adding a little furniture can help future homeowners envision themselves in your home before they ever step foot inside. Some inexpensive, secondhand wicker furniture and bright pillows will make even a small front porch look enticing. Maybe even add a small table.
Boost #3: Lighten up
Potted flowers brighten up the space and are very welcoming. Get a few from your local nursery, and of course, don’t forget to water them.
