1. Emotionally Remove Yourself From Your Home.

Say to yourself, "This is not my home; it is a house -- a product to be sold much like a box of cereal on the grocery store shelf.

Don't look backwards -- look toward the future.

2. De-Personalize.

Pack up those personal photographs. Buyers can't see past personal artifacts, and you don't want them to be distracted. You want buyers to imagine their own photos on the walls, and they can't do that if yours are there! You don't want to make any buyer ask, "I wonder what kind of people live in this home?" You want buyers to say, "I can see myself living here."

3. De-Clutter!

People collect an amazing quantity of junk. Consider this: if you haven't used it in over a year, you probably don't need it.

f you don't need it, why not donate it or throw it away?

Remove all books from bookcases.

Clean off everything on kitchen counters.

4. Give Your House A “Neat” look.

Buyers love to snoop and will open closet and cabinet doors. Think of the message it sends if items fall out! Now imagine what a buyer believes about you if she sees everything organized. It says you probably take good care of the rest of the house as well. This means:

Neatly stack dishes.

Hang shirts together, buttoned and facing the same direction.

5. Remove/Replace Favorite Items.

If you want to take window coverings, built-in appliances or fixtures with you, remove them now. If the chandelier in the dining room once belonged to your great grandmother, take it down. If a buyer never sees it, she won't want it. Once you tell a buyer she can't have an item, she will covet it, and it could blow your deal. Pack those items and replace them, if necessary.

6. Make Minor Repairs.

Replace cracked floor or counter tiles.

Patch holes in walls.

Fix leaky faucets.

Consider painting your walls neutral colors, especially if you have grown accustomed to purple or pink walls.

Replace burned-out light bulbs.

7. Make the House Shine!

Wash windows inside and out.

Clean out cobwebs.

Re-caulk tubs, showers and sinks.

Polish chrome faucets and mirrors.

Clean out the refrigerator.

Wax floors.

Dust furniture, ceiling fan blades and light fixtures.

Bleach dingy grout.

Bathroom towels look great fastened with ribbon and bows.

Clean and air out any musty smelling areas. Odors are a no-no.

8. Scrutinize.

Go outside and open your front door. Stand there. Do you want to go inside? Does the house welcome you?

Does it look like nobody lives in this house? You're almost finished.

9. Check Curb Appeal.

If a buyer won't get out of her agent's car because she doesn't like the exterior of your home, you'll never get her inside.

Keep the sidewalks cleared.

Mow the lawn.

Paint faded window trim.

Make sure visitors can clearly read your house number.
