Do your research by taking a drive around your neighbourhood and making notes on homes that are well presented and appealing. What is different about them. If you need extra inspiration, visit real estate sites to see how homes in your area are presented. If you are looking at selling, remember that the first image people look at is the exterior. This will motivate them to either click on your property or scroll past it.
