We are getting ready to sell and I need all the help that I can get. I am in the process of trying to depersonalize the kids rooms and get everything ready. So I was thinking a ton of your Mom have bought and sold houses so what are some things that you look for when you are buying a new house. What is appealing to you? What would totally turn you off? Help me please.

We packed up all personal items and knick knacks that might make the space seem smaller and cluttered. Cleaned out closets and pack up what you don't need so the closets seem really big. We put several pieces of furniture in storage so the rooms looked bigger. We painted a couple rooms that needed to be freshened up. We sold our home in less than 20 days. I usually baked some cookies so the house smelled really good and left a plate for the potential buyers on the counter.

I agree with the other posters. And in addition, make sure the house has beautiful curb appeal (first impressions and all). Plant flowers, get a yard service, wash windows and make sure the front door is polished, painted and cleaned. Baking cookies is a great one- we did that many times. Be patient, especially if you're in a high end home-those loans are hard to come by during these economic times.
