Things to do OUTSIDE!

Remove any clutter in the yard

Repair cracked or uneven driveway or walkway surfaces

If the lawn has bald spots, apply some top dressing and re-seed. Prune trees and shrubs of dead wood. Weed and mulch flower beds, if you have them. Consider buying some flower-filled planters to enhance the eye appeal of the property. Make sure the lawn is mowed.

Are the windows and walls clean?

Does the front door need paint?

Ensure the eaves and downspouts are clear of debris and in good repair. Buyers don't want maple trees growing out of the eaves.

Is the backyard deck and walkway clean? Consider power washing.

If there is a swimming pool, are the deck and pool clean

Do all outside lights work? Replace any burned out bulbs, and clean fixtures of dirt and cobwebs

Is there a shed? Does it look presentable?

Do windows and exterior doors need recaulking? Even at 6-7 years of age, the caulking may be dried out and in need of replacement.

If you have a gate, is it well oiled?
