I once heard a saying that went, "You never get a second chance to make a good first impression." As I was driving around Ashburn today I noticed that there was not a lot of life. The trees were bare, and the yards were empty. With the spring market quickly approaching, now is the time to think about first impressions.

In our technologically-driven age I'm guessing that when people come to see your home in a showing, they've already toured it virtually dozens and dozens of times. Because of this, you're going to have to make your home stand out straight from the get-go.

One way to get ahead of your competition is to spruce up your yard this spring. Cut the grass, plant some flowers, repaint some shutters or siding if necessary. Make your home look beautiful, and think critically about its curb appeal while you are transforming it.

The next step in this process would be to take a picture of your newly manicured property and post it on a real estate site. This will help to make it stand out to the other pictures of properties, which are probably photos from the fall or winter. Your picture will contrast with these and make a potential buyer want to know more about your property.

Of course, be sure to maintain the condition of your home all spring and summer to make sure that potential buyers see the same home that you advertised online. The benefit to taking this updated and more colorful picture of your home is that you can save it so that when you sell in the future, you can just reuse it without any hassle.
