Choose Low-Maintenance Materials
If you’re doing some last-minute upgrades to sell your home, such as replacing flooring or countertops, choose low-maintenance materials. Many potential buyers don’t want to spend a lot of time with cleaning and maintenance. Also, make sure your yard is low-maintenance so buyers aren’t intimidated by potential upkeep.

Remove Personal Items
If you have a lot of family photos on the wall or several pieces of your child’s artwork on the refrigerator door, you should take them down and store them out of sight. This will help buyers see the home as a clean slate they could make their own. It might be sad to take those personal items down but it will help you sell your home in the meantime.
