Plant flowers

2. Create a Welcome Moment With Your Front Porch
Even if there is only a tiny stoop, make it say “welcome home”
Use potted plants in bloom
Secure and put out a clean doormat
If there is room, add one or two pieces of furniture
Keep your porch lights on in the evenings
Illuminate the front walk with solar lights

3. Schedule A Deep Home Cleaning

4. De-Clutter
Don’t just shut the closet door!
Clean out and organize closets
Remove unnecessary items from counter tops and tables
Take down personal photos from walls and tables
Use an off-site storage unit if needed

5. Create a Warm and Welcoming Environment
Use items like a vase of cut flowers, a basket of fresh farmer’s market produce on the kitchen counter, or a bowl of lemons beside the sink

6. Consider the Pets
Steam clean all carpets and rugs – you may not sense your pet, but strangers likely can
