Clean Floors and Carpet 
One item that often need addressing in order to sell your property fast are the floors. Ensure the floors are in good condition and clean. Dirty and non functioning floors will turn off a home buyer. Dirty floors and carpet could make the whole home seem dirty. 
There less expensive ways instead of replacing floors or carpet. Consider buffing wood floors. As far as carpets, consider steam cleaning and use of stain remover to bring the carpet to its glory days.
