Tips for a Successful Showing: The Exterior – Think Seasonally

Have you taken stock of your yard and exterior as the seasons have changed?

  • Take advantage of the current season and decorate your yard appropriately
    • Make sure your garden is in beautiful shape in the summer, and that any extra features you have, like a pool or a fire pit, are cleaned and ready to go.
  • Stage the outdoors
    • Even if your home has a small patio or balcony, play it up with a cute cafe table and chairs, a cheerful tablecloth and even a little tray of dishes or a vase of flowers. When people look at this scene, they won’t be thinking “small,” they will be thinking, “What a charming spot to have breakfast!”
  • Create a lifestyle people are looking for
    • Generally speaking, you want to play up what your neighborhood or area is known for. Have a house in a quiet, grassy suburb? Hanging a hammock in your backyard and a bench swing on your porch could be the perfect touch.
