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!
- Paint the interior in neutral colors
