  1. De-clutter: Donate it, dump it, or if you really need it, store it.
  2. De-personalize: Remove family photos, personal memorabilia and keepsakes.
  3. Remove furniture: Create the feeling of space, especially if square footage is limited.
  4. Clean: A clean home tells buyers that it is well-maintained.
  5. Paint: Keep the walls neutral to appeal to more buyers.
  6. Bring in the light: Remove heavy window treatments, clean windows, and bring in lamps.
  7. Add curb appeal: Clean up the yard, trim shrubs, add a nice doormat to welcome visitors.
  8. Minor Repairs: Replace light bulbs, fix leaky faucets, make sure closet doors are on track and clean grout.
  9. Update kitchens & baths: Buyers place a huge value on updates

Remember to create a positive first impression and showcase the best attributes of your home.
