Before listing your home, and even before a listing appointment for your home, if time is on your side, it's a good idea to take steps to prepare your home for it. If in doubt about something even the slightest, ask your agent or wait for your agent's guidance, and if they don't say something about it, ask.
Marking Items You Plan to Adjust or that You Have Questions About
Cost-effective interior preparations for your listing include the following:
Paint & Caulk
Clean, Deodorize, & Place Equipment for Future Cleaning
Photos & Religious Items: you may want to make the home welcoming to as diverse of an audience as possible.
