Barbara Corcoran's latest:
5 things to do before you hold an open house

GREEN: Nothing makes a better first impression than pulling up to a home for sale that has one of the nicest yards on the block. Creating a beautiful yard is inexpensive, but it does require a bit of dirt under the fingernails. A green lawn that's just been mowed, with trimmed bushes and a pretty flower border or potted flowers on the porch, tells buyers the inside will be as neat and tidy as the outside.
This is quite a flip from her previous advice to "get a cement truck over there fast". Bravo, Ms. Corcoran.
