  • I notice if the yard is clean and the grass is cut and edged around the sidewalks...trees trimmed. I like it when the lower branches are cut off so that the tree grows up and creates shade. I also like it when there are lights up in the trees so the branches glow. I also notice if the window coverings are tidy and if the windows are clean. I like the front door to be clean and painted nicely.

  • The landscaping captures my eye first. I guess everything else pales, if the grass isn't cut, edged and weeds pulled. Flowers and shrubbery also stand out.

  • The color of their trim, doors and shutters. I like red, navy, and dark purple best for some reason.

  • A nice green ,neat lawn and a few flowering bushes and a colorful and freshly painted facade. I wouldn't like a home with a weedy,unmowed lawn and peeling paint or damaged siding. It is important to have the exterior in great shape.If the exterior is a mess, you will assume the interior is yukky too.

  • I notice the bushes blocking the view of the windows, makes it easy for people to break in. I notice if the toys are all over or nicely up by the house. I notice the colors of the house and the flowers and fall in love with any house that has window boxes with flowers flowing from them. I used to install gutters so I notice those as well, lol,
    I will also notice the fact that the curtains are open and I can see inside, I notice the playset,if the garage is open and whats inside. yeah it sounds like I'm a stalker but really I'm not.... I am just observant
