1.  WILL THE CURBSIDE GLOW?Starting out with the front of the house.  It's a given to manicure the exterior, yard, lawn, shrubs, but to also freshen or even PAINT the entry doors, then wash all the windows in the house, inside and out.  While you are at it, clean the window sills and the bottom of the window jambs, and wash the blinds.

2.  ANY SMELLS?Thoroughly air out the home.  Because you are used to it, you may not notice weird odors in your home that may be blatantly obnoxious to visitors.  It may be a kitty litter box or a dog bed, old food under the couch, a kitchen rubbish can, mildewed baths.  If you have air ionizers, that may do the trick.

3.  HOW's THE FLOORING?  The money spent on professional carpet shampooing will be returned two for one.  Bare floors should also be waxed or polished.

4. DOES IT LOOK DINGY? Buyers like bright and cheery looking rooms the best. Install the brightest light bulbs allowed by the fixture manufacture in every socket.  You will also want to keep the drapes and shades open during the day, even if you are not in that habit, because it will make the property look bigger, brighter and better than your competition.


5.  IS THERE CLUTTER? On the required list is to clean out the garage, the basement, if any, store room and all of the closets and cabinets.  Get rid of things.  Pack up everything that you haven´t used in the past 6 months.  You are MOVING ANYWAY!  Use the phrase "When in Doubt ? Throw it out!"  Do it without conscience or remorse. With less clutter, it will make every room appear larger.
