Time spent preparing your home for a sale is never wasted and can make the difference between a good price and a disappointing one. Look at the exterior and interior through a potential buyer's eyes. Every room should sell itself and have an obvious function. Create a sense of space and remove clutter; make sure the house is clean and smells fresh; repair any damages, particularly to original features; and respect the type and period of your property when decorating. Above all, remember that first and last impressions count, so ensure that appropriate attention is given to your entrance and driveway.
