Here are some ways to "neutralize" your home without making it boring.
Toning down the colors in your home so that it is more universally appealing is a great idea. White paint is unflattering and actually draws attention to cracks and uneven walls. Beige is a better choice because it coordinates well with popular "Keys" colors and comes in many varieties, like latte, cappuccino, and cocoa.
Take some things out of the house to reduce clutter and make the home appear bigger, but don't fully strip it of it's personality. You'll want to keep most of your furnishings neutral but keep, for example, a few of your best fishing photographs.
Think of your home as a boutique hotel: a very comfortable place to move into right now. Buyers don't want an empty shell. They are looking for homes that are finished but not offensive.
