Make Repairs

Now is the time to fix all of those nagging things that you've just lived with for too long.

Outside, look for broken or missing shingles, patio pavers and tuckpointing. If you have a deck, check for cracks in floor boards and loose railings.

Think Neutrals

If you decide to do some interior painting, stick to neutral colors. You've heard it before, but it's the truth. Neutrals don't distract and they allow potential buyers to imagine their things in your home.

Create Curb Appeal

It's important that your home makes a good first impression. When potential buyers drive up to your home, you want them to think, "Wow! I could live here!" To make sure buyers want to see the inside of your home with a well-kept, tidy and inviting exterior. Keep the grass cut, maintain flower beds and keep the yard tidy.

Choose Materials

Wisely

If you're doing some last-minute upgrades to sell your home, like replacing flooring or countertops, choose low-maintenance materials. Many potential buyers don't want to spend a lot of time with cleaning and maintenance. Also, make sure the yard is low-maintenance too so.  potential buyers aren't can be intimidated by upkeep needed.
