Potential buyers will look at the exterior of the home and this is even easier for them to do in the great summer weather, so make sure everything is in tip top shape. Also, what the curb appeal and the exterior of the home look like, will give potential buyers an idea what the interior of the home is like, so make sure to meet their high expectations. Keep the lawn mowed and watered, prune trees, shrubs and bushes, keep flower beds neat and blooming. Fix up any exterior paint problems, clean the driveway and keep it debris free and make the front entrance appealing and welcoming.
