If you cannot bring a buyer to the front door, you cannot sell the house. To create optimal attraction, make sure the reasons are well maintained. Fences must be trimmed and flower beds must be weed free. New layers of mulch or stone help improve the expanse of flowers. Make sure there is a direct path to the entrance and that the road is free of obstacles, such as toys, gardening tools, newspapers, milk boxes, etc. Terrace art must be minimized or, to get the best results, completely eliminated. House paint and prints must be in good condition. This is especially true in the case of the entrance, because the buyer will spend a few minutes there while the agent opens the door. Neutral welcome mattresses are a nice touch: stay away from problems, because they affect the perception of home buyers.
