Hands down the single best and most cost effective tool EVERYONE has for getting your home ready for the market is PAINT. Most everyone can paint and here's a hint: USE BENJAMIN MOORE PAINT!! They have the best colors and cover beautifully. Use a matte or eggshell sheen and paint in monochrome to enlarge the space. Don't chop it up with a bunch of colors and remember the ceilings! 

  1. Paint the interior in neutral colors 
  2. Paint the exterior doors and window trim 
  3. Paint the shutters 
  4. Paint the exterior if it's been 5-7 years
