1. Clear clutter. When you have too many appliances on the counters in your kitchen or piles of magazines on every flat surface of your living room or too much furniture in your rooms, it turns buyers off because they're not able to visualize how they will use the space. 

2. Hire a cleaning service. Buyers won't notice if your home is spotlessly clean, but they will notice if it isn't.

3. Remove family photos. 

4. Neutralize odors. 

5. Make repairs. Buyers are looking for the imperfections in your home, so now's the time to fix that leaky faucet or slow-running drain, replace broken window panes and replace burned out light bulbs. 
6. Buy new towels. Spruce up your kitchen and bathroom for your guests with top-of-the linen plush linens.

7. Set the table. (DON'T DO THIS ONE!)

8. Enhance curb appeal. Trim your lawn, weed your beds and prune your shrubs. 

9. Organize cabinets and drawers. Storage space is a vital selling point of any property. 

10. Leave. Buyers will feel more comfortable asking questions of your agent if you're not hovering in the background.
