- Update and (sometimes) renovate. There are projects that can be done to modernize your home that do not cost a great deal. Home sellers must realize that even though the appliances, carpeting, cabinets, paint, and fixtures may still function, they must be updated to improve the chances of getting the most money for your house.
- Maintain. And maintenance – routine maintenance – with documentation will help you compete as well. And if you are considering putting your home on the market think seriously about addressing those little things that have been "acting up."
