The condition of your home's exterior is most important when it comes to buyer appeal. The condition of your interior is entirely irrelevant if a prospective buyer won't even get out of their car because they don't like the exterior of it. Inspect the outside grounds. Remove any building materials, scrap wood, discarded household items, etc. from the property. Store garbage cans in the garage or behind the fence.
