Ready to get to work? Start with the front porch. Curb appeal is not just for selling homes. Imagine your potential renters scrolling quickly through pages and pages of vacation house listings — often with only a thumbnail photo of the front of the house to lure them in. Make sure that front-page photo is a winner. Refinish the floors, scrub the siding, fix the lights and style the porch or yard with cute furniture and summery props. Do whatever you need to do to make the front of your home look as charming as the inside.
