Cleaning is the single most cost effective way to make your home more attractive to Buyers. Floors, windows, walls, doors baseboards.....everything! Give extra care and attention to Bathrooms and the Kitchen. When it has been cleaned, make sure to keep it clean. You never know when your ideal Buyer will visit.
Repair as much as u can
With in reason. Some repairs are absolutely vital, like a leaky roof or basement, or unsafe electrical problems.
Otherwise fix all the little items. Leaky faucets, doors that squeak, and small cracks in the ceiling.
Depersonalize your Home
You want Buyers to walk through your house and feel like it is their Home, not yours. Cluttered family photos, Portraits, or Trophy collection, are guaranteed to prevent Buyers from emotionally placing themselves in your Home. Remove everything that is too much about you!!
