Home Stagers Need to Remember the Exterior, Too!

Stagers focus much of their time on the interior of the home. A good stager, however, remembers the exterior as well. Potential buyers see the outside first and will decide in 10 seconds or less if they are even going in. If the exterior doesn't bring them in, all the interior work you have done will go unnoticed.

What to look for?

* Overgrown shrubs and/or lawn
* Weeds
* Lack of color in the yard
* "Sad" looking door mat
* Is the welcome mat look like it has seen to much welcome?
* Exterior that needs to be washed
* Dirty windows
* Cluttered yard (too much yard art)
