How to prepare to Sell a House

Often people wanting to sell their houses just don't know where to begin.  They know they have a lot of work to do, but are looking for advice on how to get started.  Because sellers are used to seeing thier clutter and volumes of trinkets and trash on a daily basis, they often just don't get the need to eliminate these items from their house. I call it the "wallpaper effect" - it's such a part of their daily lives that they don't notice it anymore. I often suggest that sellers take a really good look at each room in the house from the perspective of the doorway of each room. This is the first impression each prospective buyer will get. Even better, take a photograph. It will speak volumes. It's a great way to get a new perspective and to see where to begin to get the house ready to sell.
