Besides a good window cleaning, there’s another way to boost your curb appeal and get those windows shining: Remove the screens.
Home stagers love this trick, and it’s taken straight from the film industry. Remove the outside screens on your windows in the front of your home prior to your home being photographed, or prior to an open house. Your windows will look shiny and clean.
After all, a window screen can make a window appear filmy and dark.
But whatever you do, don’t throw away those screens! Keep them in the garage, and don’t forget to reinstall them later. The new homeowners will most certainly still want those.
