Have your home inspected for any major or structural damage, ex, water infiltration, mould, foundation cracks, chimney issues, especially if you have an older home. You do not want to find out about anything like that through the buyer's inspector.

Fresh flowers, soft vanilla scent, closets less than half full, and very organized. Oh, and pets stay with a friend or are boarded for the day, especially if you have an open house.

I think a lot depends on the area in which you live. I use to live in a desirable area that was close to really good amenities, and my house needed a lot of repairs, and new landscaping. However, I did nothing to it, but still got top dollar for it.
