You listed home needs to make a strong first impression.  Take a serious look at what buyers see when the approach the outside of your home.  

Is the yard well manicured?  Are the shrubs trimmed?  Does the front porch/entryway have curb appeal?

Now is the time to spruce up the yard, sweep walks, remove cobwebs, and add a few details that will leave a lasting impression.  Put up a new porch light.  Freshen your front door with a coat of paint.  Add a large pot of colorful flowers especially fragrant ones that buyers will notice while the front door is being unlocked.

Inside the front door, your interior entry should also be welcoming.  Make sure it is well lit.  This may be a good time to spruce up the paint and add an interesting light fixture.  Make sure the fragrance inside is appealing -- use the plug in frangrances from Bath & Body works in Linen or Apple -- something that is soft and fresh but not overpowering. 

These small inexpensive tips will pay off in the offers submitted!
