Be pro-active! Evaluate your home and do the repairs you’ve been putting off, de-clutter by organizing shelves, table tops, closets, pantry and cabinets. Invest in inexpensive updates; door knobs and or pulls, analyze your lighting (track lighting dates a home), are your faucets the shiny brass ones from the 90’s? What about your shower heads, have they turned green? Bring in the light by adding timers to your lamps; it’s not inviting for clients to walk into a dark house and fumble for the lights. How about updating or removing window treatments? Clean your windows inside and out. A fresh coat of paint will go a long way. Step outside and take a deep breath, now step inside and take a deep breath, what do you smell? Food and pet odors can turn anyone away. Replace the air filter in your A/C and your vacuum. Add life with inexpensive colorful plants, but don’t forget to water them!
