  2. Curb Appeal Comes First - What potential buyers see from the road is their first impression. If you have great curb appeal, you'll get interested buyers.
  3. Open Up Living Spaces - Potential buyers need to be able to imagine themselves living in a space their way. Leaving it open leaves room for their imaginations to take over.
  4. Depersonalize - Your home has been decorated and furnished to suit you, not your buyers. Depersonalizing removes doubts that they will be able to make it suit their tastes.
  5. Paint With Neutral Tones - Finally, repaint with neutral tones. This is the most important part of depersonalizing a space.
