The first thing people see is the front of your house. Few people will step in your house if the front of your house doesn't look the part in reality or even in pictures. There are different levels of investments you can endure. the first one is time investment: take the time to clean up your windows, leaves, roof, and cobwebs. Garden a little: prune your trees/plants and get rid of the dead plants. A few weeks prior to the visits, water your lawn more often, spray some weed killer. If you are willing to spend some money in your garden, replace your patchy grass with artificial turf or mulch and buy a few plants if your garden bed looks empty.
Driveway and paths should be cleaned up as well so there is no mould or weed between the pavers or cracks. You can also freshen up the whole look with a brand new exposed aggregate driveway or concrete pathways or steppers. These will have a strong visual impact and do not cost as much as you think.
