Home Staging from the curb: Here in the Midwest we are dreaming of springtime and a final snow melt. As lovely as 45 degrees and sunny sounds, though, this new season brings with it a list of chores that every homeowner needs to do. There are windows, decks, and siding to be cleaned. Wet leaves and remnants of salt and sand need to be cleared from the lawn. The front stoop may need a cleaning, and the pot a change. If your house is on the market, these chores are even more imperative. Your pre-showing checklist may have just gotten longer. Think neat and tidy. Bushes and trees should be trimmed. Your front door should be impeccable…does it need a fresh coat of paint? It has been said that you never get a second chance to make a first impression, so how your home appears from the curb is crucial. Don’t be a drive-by!!!!
