Lawn maintenance:  A well mowed lawn adds instant appeal to a property.  If your lawn is patchy or has bare areas, some lawn repair may be needed.

Pruning:  Prune any overgrown shrubbery or trees on the property.  If you are unsure how to do this properly, contact a local landscaper for help.a_man_raking_fallen_leaves_royalty_free_080818-095072-962018

Weeding/mulching:  Weeding flower beds and mulching right before listing your house also adds instant appeal to your property.  Also remove weeds between pavers and concrete cracks.

Storing the extras:  Remove any kid’s toys, bikes, etc. and put in storage.  Get rid of any trash, junk or anything else that is cluttering the lawn and toss any dead plants left in containers.

Plants:  Plant areas of color to last throughout the growing season.

Miscellaneous:  Sweep porches, decks and other hard surface areas and remove any cobwebs in corners.  If necessary, powerwash the house, wood and concrete surfaces to remove caked-on dirt and possible mold.

Follow these quick, simple tips to help your property appeal to buyers and be prepared to start packing!
