2.     Clean, de-clutter and simplify.  Remove large furniture to make the rooms look larger.  Clear out stuffed closets and cabinets.

You’re moving anyhow, start the process now and discard or box unessential items. 

3.     Update.  Fresh paint, replace outdated appliances and fixtures in the kitchen and baths.

4.     Hire a Home Inspector.  Know ahead of time what issues exist and make essential repairs.

Your buyer will have a home inspector, and resolving issues may avoid re-negotiation.
