While these factors do not necessarily impact "value" in the same way, they do each impact marketability and consumer appeal.
I recommend going on a property tour with your agent to see those properties that received contracts in your area in less than 30 days that are still in an active option/pending status (available to show.) This will give you an idea of the elements that each home offered (beyond price) that contributed to a quick purchase offer - then compare to yours, decide what your home lacks, set a budget, and implement the improvements.
Basically, it's a good idea to do things to make your house seem bigger and brighter with open space floor plans.
This may incude cleaning, getting rid of clutter, and good natural light coming in from the outside.
Don't forget your curb appeal clean up too, as this is what all people see before they enter your home.
Then get rid of all your junk even if you think you don't have much, less is better and will make the space look bigger.
Before you go and start spending 10's of thousands remodeling or upgrading a home you need to discuss this with a Realtor who can help you evaluate the market in your area and to evaluate several different avenues.
It can be anything from freshening up with paint and refinished flooring, to fully staged or just sell it â€œas isâ€. If you are planning on staying in the house for a while yourself then appropriately upgrading the kitchen (donâ€™t just add Granite onto old cabinets or use 5 different types of tile) and bathrooms can be the most effective. Remember large projects such as these do not mean that you will get all your money back.
Best of luck,
