What the buyer sees when he first looks at your home for sale, stays with him for a long time. Be sure your home makes a good first impression. Don't ignore the front yard and entry way of your home. Buyers who see a home for sale that looks unappealing from the outside, just move along to the next listing without ever going through the door! Once the buyer goes through the door, staging your home with a few decorating changes will help him feel this is a home he might want to live in.
