These are tips that won't cost a lot but can make a big difference on the appearance of your home. It is amazing how just a little attention to the details will add that special appeal that the buyer is looking for!

Clean up the outside.
Curb appeal is the first impression of your house. Keeping the grass cut and the area tidy will help make a great first impression.

Paint or wash the exterior of the house (including window casings, shutters, and doors).

Wash the windows inside and out.

Check the gutters and chimney.


Touch up the interior.

Put a fresh coat of paint in the most used areas of the home. This will clean as well as brighten up the rooms.

Wash the walls where paint is not appropriate (i.e. wall paper, paneling).

Wash all floors and bathroom tiles.

Shampoo dirty carpets.

Get rid of clutter. Clean out your closets, garage, basement and attic. Use self storage if necessary.

Replacing air filters will help keep the dust down.


Replace bathroom and kitchen fixtures that are worn or leaking.

People will notice a leaking or worn-out faucet. By replacing these items, you will give a new look to the room.

Clean under the sinks. If there is any leaks fix them. Then clean up the damage using contact paper or paint.


Get rid of any bad smells in your home.

Pay attention to pet or cigarette odors.

Place scented potpourri around the house.

On the day you're expecting a potential buyer, pop a batch of frozen cinnamon rolls or home-made bread into the oven for a great aroma.


Use a title company to handle the closing.

A title company can handle the title search and paper work for a very small fee. It is well worth the cost.
