• Colour has the power to attract. A tub of colourful flowers on the front step adds a welcoming touch.
  • If you have a front veranda or deck, set the stage with attractively arranged outdoor furniture.
  • Consider using an attractive welcome mat to greet buyers when they come through your front door. It can also encourage them to wipe their feet and keep dirt from tracking through the property.

  • Replace any broken or cracked windows.
  • Screens should be free of any tears, holes, dust and cobwebs.
  • Inspect all locks to ensure they are functioning properly.
  • Check for loose or missing tiles and clear out gutters and downpipes. Touch up peeling paint on gutters. Check for mildew or stains on exterior bricks or concrete. Power clean if necessary.
  • Remove dust and cobwebs.
  • Ensure the grass is neatly mowed, raked and edged.
