Everybody knows the rules about curb appeal and getting rid of clutter. The other thing that people really pay attention to is cleanliness!
Nobody lives in a perfect house and in the world we live in where everybody is so busy with working full-time and activities with the kids no house is ever perfect!... This is where they have come up with the phrase "lived in!" ... And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that! .. Until we want to sell our home! .. Keep in mind that there are a lot of houses out there for sale and if we want people to choose your house instead of one of the others out there a big part of it is that people want to be able to move in and not have to do anything! .. We often hear that people don't want to replace carpet in case a buyer wants to choose something different than what they would buy.
Depending on how bad the carpet is it's usually best to go ahead and replace it. Just be sure to use a decent quality of carpet and a neutral color.
Freshen up your paint and make sure your bathrooms and kitchen sparkles!! .. (Including your oven!)
