Painting is the cheapest renovation with highest return. It's very common to walk into a property that needs the walls to freshened up. A coat (or two) of neutral paint makes a huge impact on the first impression a potential buyer has with your house. Bold colors are fun to live with but not for selling. Keep it light, warm and neutral.
Lighting is just as important. Light and bright rooms make the space feel bigger than it actually is. Square feet or space equals dollars...in your pocket so we want to fool the eye using layers of light. Updating any fixtures can help modernize a property instantly and also create interest in a dull room.
Furnishing vacant properties is very important in showing buyers how they can use the space. It's all about marketing the home, not just how the realtor describes it on MLS but how a property looks and feels to buyers. Without furniture inside the rooms it makes it difficult for people to visualize themselves in the space. Buyers need to have that warm and inviting feeling as they walk in the door. The goal is to have the house feel like a showhome.
