In our current market, many sellers want to be at the front of the competition when listing their house for sale. In other words, if there are four other houses on the same street for sale, it is not uncommon to want to have the best prepared and priced house. Why not and in fact, it makes a lot of sense to have a well prepared home.
First and foremost, this is a good thing most of the time. For sure you want to price your home attractively and the appearance should be second to none. Having said that please be careful that you don't over do any renovation or upgrade. If you do, it could end up costing you when you finally have to sign on the dotted line.
Here is an excellent article that you can point your mouse toward in getting more information on upgrades that don't pay. The article is actually titled, 4 Housing Upgrades That Don't Pay.

Selling Thought For The Day: When interviewing a Realtor, never be afraid to ask for references. In other words, "Would you supply me the names of three clients you've worked with in Real Estate?"
