If you are getting ready to sell your home, take time as the season begins to change take time to clean the windows outside and inside. To sell your home it needs to sparkle, so make sure the windows do too. In addition, take the drapes or curtains and have them cleaned.  Also, clean the blinds. If you have screens, this is a great time to clean those, as well. During open houses and showings, keep the blinds raised and the drapes open, so the home has as much natural light as possible.
