Tip1
  1. Move all materials including garbage cans and gardening supplies into a garage or shed
  2. Mow the lawn and weed and maintain all planted areas
  3. Replace any outdoor light bulbs that are not working
 
Tip2
  1. Sweep walkways and steps and remove all small items from the porch or patio
  2. Wash and repaint the front door if necessary
  3. Replace worn or badly stained door mats

  2. Clear all unnecessary small appliances from kitchen countertops
  3. Rearrange or remove furniture to highlight the space in a room
