You want buyers to focus on how awesome your space is, not how messy it looks. Remove any items that will distract the buyer.


Clean, Clean, Clean
Thoroughly clean the house with pleasant smelling cleaners.


Pay Attention To Smell
Do not overdo it with plug-ins or diffusers. Pick a subtle smell that is not over-bearing. Fresh, clean smells are the best choice.


Tackle That Honey-Do List
All those little things you’ve been meaning to do but never got around to? Buyers will notice them, and they’ll detract from the value of your home.


Repaint The Walls Neutral Colors
As much as you love your dramatic red dining room, it could turn off a good portion of your buyers. So repaint your rooms in neutral tones like tans and whites that allow buyers to focus on the spaces themselves, not the color of the walls.


Keep The Décor Simple
Get rid of any art or other décor that might turn off people with different tastes.


Get Rid Of Personal Items
Buyers want to envision themselves in your home, so remove anything overly personal, like family photos in the hallway or your kids’ artwork on the fridge.


Open Blinds
Open up all the windows to let in natural light and add floor or table lamps to areas that are dim. A bright, cheery room looks bigger and more inviting.


Bring Nature Inside
Potted plants or a bouquet of freshly cut flowers in a vase on the dining room table, or coffee table, will add color and warmth to your space.


Get Rid Of Bulky Furniture
Your furniture should fit the scale of the room, so get rid of any extra or oversized items that could make your space look smaller than it really is.


Organize Closets
Invest in some boxes, dividers and other solutions that will help you make your stuff look more organized, and remove extra items you don’t need immediately.


Give Each Room A Purpose
That spare room you’ve been using as an office / guest room /dumping ground won’t help sell your home unless you show buyers how they can use it themselves. So pick a use (office, guest room, crafts room) and clearly stage the space to showcase that purpose.


Turn Living Room Into Conversation Central
Help buyers picture themselves relaxing with family and guests by grouping your furniture into arrangements that inspire conversation.


Do a Faux “Renovation”
Some items look dated? Replace the old fixture in the kitchen or the light fixture in the bedroom. Small upgrades go a long way.


Boost Curb Appeal
Trim your shrubs, weed your flower beds, fix any peeling paint and keep the walkway clear. Just adding a row of potted plants along the walkway or a cheerful wreath to your front door can make a big difference.
