Often the first step in selling your home is making sure it's ready for the market in the first place. Some sellers rush a home onto the market without properly preparing it for the public. By considering early on improvements that you may need to make, you can save yourself future headaches.
The amount and kind of work that you should do depends largely on the price you intend to ask, the time you have to sell, and the current condition of the house. If your house is in good condition and you're pressed for time, do the small things that can make a big cosmetic difference. New paint, re-grouted tile in the bathroom and kitchen, new carpet in the major traffic areas-these are the kinds of things that can be relatively inexpensive for you yet important to potential buyers.
As far as major projects are concerned, avoid making improvements that may come down to a matter of taste. For instance, most buyers will appreciate newly tiled bathroom floors or brand new professional roofing, but not all buyers will be swayed by an expensive swimming pool in the back yard. Make sure that the investment in time and money you make for any project will be recouped in the sale of your house.

"Heather helped my wife & I purchase our first home. She is experienced and not afraid of a fight. We ran into an issue on the day of our closing during the final walk through...the HVAC system blew. She never stopped fighting for us to get into our home, and continued to negotiate with the seller's party to help us remedy the situation. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone purchasing a property, especially if it's their first home!
