Curb appeal is one of the most important aspects of a property for sale, because it's the first thing people see. In fact, in many cases, a potential buyer makes their decision before they even walk in the door. In a worst case scenario, a buyer may not even get out of the car based on the appearance of the property. Make sure that your lawn is neatly cut, and that your driveway and sidewalk are as clean as possible.

Minimize odors

Many people don't realize how much of an effect odors can have on a property. As soon as a potential buyer realizes how many years they'll be likely to be living in a home, any smell becomes a very big deal. Consider bringing in someone who doesn't spend much time in your house to help detect odors you've gotten used to. If you can, eliminate any odors, and if you can't, consider covering them up with a more pleasant smell.
