Unfortunately, I think the bad weather is coming and we should make sure we're ready. If you haven't done that yet, turn off the water to your outdoor spigots. Also for anyone who has a house on the market that is empty, make sure that if you don't have the heat on, your house is winterized.
If you're ready to put your house on the market, it can still look really inviting. You may not be able to place flowers outside, but you can have a nice wreath on the door or something decorative outside that will make your house more welcoming. Remember the first thing that a prospective buyer will see is the front of your home.
