    My mom just sold her house and some of the things she was told to do was to minimize all pictures on the walls and any knick knacks. Any rooms that have a non-neutral color on walls are better repainted a neutral color. Curb appeal is important so make sure the front of the house is cleaned up. You want to be careful not to do any major updates unless necessary for passing inspection, because you won't always get your money back on major updates/remodeling. Good luck:)

    old buffets can be transformed into entertainment centers, I've seen them painted with milk paint and distressed and resold for upwards of 350

    kitchen is the seller of many homes, I'd put money into the cabinets and floor, declutter overall and cleanup the front door, fresh paint garage door and look at the seals to your front side door.

    In addition to the above hints, delivered the closets. Take out as much as possible so the are clean and organized. People want storage space and if it is crammed full it looks much smaller.

    We all know kitchens and baths sell homes. Color is key. There are a few articles online about 'which colors sell best' this year, Google it. Depersonalize/uncutter all spaces, including closets. Potpourie is your best bet to keep the smells fresh (just not too much) and citrus smells are better than floral. But remember #1 is your front door and entrance. It is the first and last thing the buyer sees.

    We were told to de-clutter, put away personal items and photos, thin out the items in closets, make the curb appeal "appealing" and if you are going to do anything major it should be update kitchen and/or bathrooms. And clean, clean, clean. Have someone with fresh eyes come and look, you won't always see everything.

  • Kitchens and bathrooms. Tidy curb appeal, sparkling clean on the inside.

    Thanks so much. I thought that was the case but with changing I wasn't sure.
