- Create Curb Appeal
Mow your lawn twice a week, trim the bushes, plant flowers, scatter mulch. Sweep your sidewalk or porch and create a welcoming entrance.
- Decorate with Summer Accents
Open your blinds to let in the summer sun and bring the light inside. Use summer shades for rugs, accent pillows, table runners, and towels.
- Beat the Heat
Avoid having a hot room by keeping the air moving with fans. Keep your AC turned down so it is cooler inside so buyers don’t want to go back outside. Supply a decorative ice bucket with bottled water for guests.
- Use Summer Scents
Instead of overdoing it with too many air fresheners, cut fresh flowers and use them for display.
- Liven up the Outdoors
Power wash your deck, take off the grill cover, place your cushions the outdoor furniture, and set the mood for summer entertainment.
