I can go on and on.
I read your other post.
I assume you mean toning down the color in one of the bedrooms. We have already repainted our darker bedroom into more neutral color and I'll update the pictures within a day or two.
Remove your valuables and empty the medicine cabinet. I would recommend a basket (or a plastic bin) where you can put medicine and smaller items including you mail and stuff with personal info, before someone comes, and lock it away in your car. Secure your computer/laptop with passwords and possibly move your laptop to a safe place, or your car.
Have as much info as possible regarding your association, budgets, heating and or cooling expanses, electric bills etc. to be able to answer questions.
Your bathrooms are the next item. Old tiny tile or pinks and other dated colors are a turn off. Update the fixtures,lighting and tile. Everyone uses their bathroom daily but not everyone is a gourmet cook. and in the city, they may eat out a lot. So I would choose to do the baths before the kitchen which is a much costlier item and more personal. I see many properties with really tired baths.
Good luck and I have some great Realtor friennds in Newton if you'd like a referral.

Home values have been reduced by almost 50% in the past few years due to unemployment, foreclosures, and short sales in the Southwest Florida area. With this reduction in property values, many homeowners are deciding to remodel rather than move.
Whether you are planning to stay in that home or move, the 20 best ways to add value to your home according to HGTV are:
â€¢ Update or add a home office with an inviting workspace and built-ins
â€¢ Add square footage such as a lanai or sunroom
â€¢ Update a master suite with cozy open space with a really nice closet
â€¢ Add a new family room with an open floor plan for the entire family to gather
â€¢ Keep the roof in good working condition or replace it
â€¢ Update your landscaping
â€¢ Remodel the kitchen
â€¢ Add or remodel a bathroom
â€¢ When putting on an addition, make sure it blends with the rest of the house
â€¢ Install new windows and/or doors
â€¢ Remodel a basement
â€¢ Add a deck, patio or other outdoor living space
â€¢ Paint the interior in classic and neutral colors
â€¢ Remodel your attic or above the garage space
â€¢ Add a second story to your home
â€¢ Include a specialty room
â€¢ Replace the siding or repaint the exterior
According to Dave Beck The Handyman, a local residential contractor in Charlotte County, Florida, kitchens and baths are what most people are choosing to remodel in this area.
A kitchen remodel can be anything from new cabinets or cabinet fronts, to changing faucets and fixtures, replacing countertops and opting for energy efficient appliances.
Bath remodels include complete tear downs to replacing cabinets, toilets, countertops, light fixtures, and tiled baths and showers. Many retirees are opting for walk-in showers rather than bath tubs.
Just be sure to hire a licensed residential contractor for any major projects you choose to encounter, unless you are handy enough yourself. To search for a licensed contractor go to http://www.myfloridalicense.com.

Spruce up the exterior first to make buyers want to come in. In the interior, your efforts are well spent on painting walls and trim. Warm, neutral tones, not off white.
Are there any other units for sale? If there's no discernible differences between the units, then focus on the lighting and other fixtures to make yours stand out.
All of this assumes you have equity in the home and there's an upside for you financially. If not, focus on cleaning and decluttering which is a no cost effort which will improve it's appearance.
