We have our first open house tommorow. We have had enough rain that the front lawn is green again. I spent a bit of time cleaning up the weeds that have also grown in during all the rain and and sweeping the front driveway. I know that when we look at a house I never look at the front driveway and see how clean in is, so I don't know why I feel that sweeping it myself will make a difference.
I alsor remember being told that the smell of fresh baked cookies is good when people are looking at the house. I do not want make the mess of making dough when I am trying to clean up, so I bought pre-made cookie dough to throw in the oven.
