1. Boost curb appeal. If a potential buyer drives by and is turned off by the exterior of your house, you can be sure they won’t be interested in seeing the interior. Before you list your home, make sure you install easy-to-read house numbers, power wash your siding, walkways and driveway, and repaint the exterior as needed. On a weekly basis, be sure the front windows are washed, the lawn is raked and foliage is well-tended.
