If you feel like you are not doing a good job of it, get a friend or a neighbours to do it. This way, you will see the areas in your house that needs improving such as the paint on the walls from outside, the garden and the driveway etc. If the paint is peeling off on walls or are the walls are stained, start repainting them. Keep a clean driveway and a groomed landscape.

You might have a lot of memories attached to the place but it is time to let that go and make the house ready for its next owners. Remove any personal items such as family photographs, small souvenirs and other trinkets you have collected over time. Keep the home as simple as you can. Let the buyers who visit the house imagine themselves living in that space without their imagination being distracted by any personal item that belongs to yours.
De-Clutter and Clean
Removing personal items isn’t enough. You need to make sure the house is well cleaned as well in order to create a welcoming vibe for anyone who visits to inspect the house. Take a good look around the house, every room. Remove any unnecessary stuff that had been collecting in the corners such as old newspapers and magazines. Dust the countertops and shelves, make sure the doors and windows open and close properly. Clean and vacuum the floors. If there are any problems with the plumbing or the electricity, repair them before you put the house on sale.
