Create the curb appeal
The first thing a buyer will notice is the façade of your home. Make sure the landscaping, lawn, driveway and walkway are clearly trimmed and well-maintained.

Keeping it clean is the easiest and economical way to paint a rosy picture in the minds of the potential buyers. Pay special attention to the bathroom and kitchen area.

Use neutral palette
There must be a transition of colour scheme in different rooms of your home. But now, it is not the right time to experiment with various palettes. Home buyers will have different taste and choice; hence, try to keep neutral shades on the walls. Darker shades make the area appear small; therefore, it is important to use light colours to make the area look more spacious.
Brighten it up

There are some small changes that you should stage, such as keeping away your personal belongings, rearranging your furniture and keep your pets in place. Staging these small things can help impress homebuyers help you grab the best deal.
Appeal to their senses

Mentally prepare yourself
