Looking outside today ... gray skies, intermittent snowflakes and semi-sleet accumulated into a pretty white wintery picture.   For those selling their homes or those looking at them, this is not a wonderful environment.  There's nothing like driving up to a property, excited customer in tow, to find that the lovely white stuff has amassed into at least an ankle-deep pristine pathless carpet with no way to the door but right straight through it.  Only the most adventurous and determined of agents and clients will brave the task and abandon their comfort and safety.   So to increase your odds of not inadvertently turning interested people away at the curb, make sure to clear those driveways and paths directly to your engaging front door.  That welcome is a subliminal good will message that will pay off in a good first impression ... that one time opportunity to make a positive impact from the start.  If you want to check that weather report, just in case, you can check your area at www.weather.com!
