Should you fix your home up before selling? The answer is "yo!"

That's yes and no, by the way. If you're thinking about carpet, paint, flooring, and your yard, it can get really expensive as a renovation project. I would advise you put the brakes on.

There are, however, things that I think you should consider. For example, a professional cleaning throughout the house is an absolute "yes." Brightening up the house with nice new lights and opening up the house with blinds and curtains are good ideas, too. You want it to be bright and airy.

Extensive renovations can get pricey if you're not careful.

Put some air freshener out to make it smell nice, too. Remember, when buyers walk into your home, you want them to have as good of an experience as possible when they imagine themselves living in the house.

Another inexpensive thing you can do is remove clutter and personal items from your home, as well as any explicit or inappropriate materials or decorations that are exclusive to you and your tastes.
