3) Doors and Windows - your front door is the major first impression to Buyers, re-paint if necessary. Make sure all windows open easily.
4) Take out the Family & Pet photos - this is better for your familiy's personal security
5) De-clutter everywhere - tidy closets, kitchen and bath cabinets, and no shoes in the entry way
6) Kitchen & Bathrooms - no dirty dishes or food in the sink, no toothpaste in the bathroom sinks or on the mirror
7) Home staging - ask your realtor for ideas on how to best showcase your home
8) Garage and Workshops - should be organized and tidy, floor cleaned, and try to make room to park at least 1 car inside
9) Odors and Pets - No Buyer wants to step in and smell wet dog, or strong cooking odors.

Selling your home takes Family effort!  Get everyone on board with helping to keep their rooms clean and tiday, as well as cleaning up after themselves in the kitchen and bathrooms.
