Paint


Fresh paint can work some serious magic, but keep the paint neutral.

Clean everything


The furniture. The window sills. The appliances. All parts of the house should pass the white glove test.

De-clutter


Every room should be expansive and airy. No clutter. If it’s a living room, keep the sofa, coffee table and flat screen TV. If it’s a bedroom, keep the bed, end tables and a dresser. That’s it. Put everything else in storage.


De-personalize


You never see family photos on the walls of the homes featured in home design magazines, You only see art. Do the same.

Place some artwork


Borrow some great paintings and large photographs of nature or an urban region from friends and families, and decorate the walls.

Add fabric or furniture


Borrow or buy some plump, fresh linens and pillows for the beds. Invest in some large rugs. Rugs are great for covering up spots and anchoring a room with some depth and color. If the house is vacant you can rent furniture. Better yet consult with your agent or an interior decorator. Look at the following before and after pictures of a living room.


Invite in light


Remove the blinds, and drape over-sized curtains from poles.
