and collections and to get rid of items that you no longer use.

Make your lighting work for you. Potential buyers want to see your home, so make sure it’s well lit. Use a combination of overhead lighting, floor and table lamps, and wall lighting to create ambiance.

Paint. A fresh coat of neutral-colored paint can brighten a room and encourages potential buyers to picture themselves living there.
