A well watered and groomed lawn and garden improves the look of any home. The better your home looks the more likely someone will be interested in purchasing the home.

Question 2

It is okay to hide any problems the home has from the potential buyer.

Letting the potential buyer know of any current problems with the home is a very good idea. This lets the buyer know how much of a investment the home my turn out to be. It is also a good idea because if you hide a potential problem that could become a big problem in the future the buyer could potentially cause you problems even long after the property has been sold.

Which is better to remain in the house during a showing of your home or to leave the home?

Remain in the home during the showing.
Take you and your family out to a park or something during the showing.
If you have a realtor or agent showing your home for you then is it better to be out of the house while you are trying to sell it. This way the prospects do not feel awkward or free to speak about the house in front of you. There is no worries of hurt feelings and such.

If you have pets or smoke consider Fabreeze for all of your cloth furniture to remove the pet smell and some kind of carpet deoderizer for the carpets. This way you can spray the Fabreeze all over the furniture and courtains about an hour before the buyer comes and sprinkle the deoderizer on the carpet and vacuum it up. Maybe even have a bit of potpourri on the coffee table.
