Make sure the lawn is free from leaves, branches and other debris and prune and trim trees to make them look prim and proper. Consider adding chairs and flower boxes to your front porch to make it look more welcoming.

Clean Your Interiors
Once your windows and home exterior are clean, it’s time to focus on the interior. Clean commonly used but overlooked areas including ceiling fans, the tops of kitchen cabinets and fireplaces. As you clean, test your home’s smoke alarms to make sure they are in good working order.
