I know it seems like a dream that we will actually be in a place soon to undertake these items, but before you know it, we will hear the robins chirping and see the lawn.
Make sure your front door is in good shape, repair cracks in the driveway and front walk, clean out gutters and trim the lawn and shrubs.
Decorate for a quick sale.
Spruce up your walls with a fresh coat of neutral paint. Make sure to also touch up the molding and ceilings.
De-clutter every room in the house.
This includes everything from top to bottom-kitchens, bedrooms, attics, garages and basements! Closets, cupboards and every nook and crannie.

Loose knobs, dripping faucets, sticking windows, warped cabinet drawers and other minor flaws detract from a home's value.
If you are considering selling your house in the near future, now is the time to roll up your sleeves and get to work.
