so reducing clutter helps to set the stage. Start by reducing clutter on your shelves and refrigerator. Sort through boxes and items in your garage, basement, or attic and decide whether you are going to keep, donate, or sell them. Even if you end up boxing up items, it will help make your storage rooms appear larger.

Give your home a spruce. Make sure you put your best foot forward for the market. Touch up trim and paint that may need it, replace old or rusted fixtures or hardware, and keep up on cleaning.
