Over at Credit.com, they list three “quick fixes” that could bring a higher sales price. This includes sprucing up the exterior, “neutralizing” the interior and managing minor repairs.
As for making the outside of your home more attractive, Credit.com notes a properties “curb appeal” is vitally important because it is the first thing a potential buyer sees. Some will formulate an opinion on the home before they ever step foot inside. Most importantly this means you need to make sure your lawn is in a healthy state. You may also want to think about adding flowers and other shrubbery.
The interior decoration of the home you will want to keep largely generic, or “neutral.” This entails toning down any brightly-colored walls and, if the amount is excessive, removing family pictures and other mementos. As Credit.com notes, “give them a clean slate so they can picture themselves (and their own sense of style) in your home as soon as they walk in.

Obviously, you want to put your best foot forward when selling a home. By following these simple pointers, this can be accomplished with just a few days of preparation.
