Make sure to move furniture to best accent a room making the room look the largest possible. But again, make sure that all the clutter is gone, and that the house is clean, clean, clean! Don't forget the front yard & front door! Curb appeal is SO important, and so is the first impression, when they walk up.
My advice would be to start by eliminating any form of clutter you might have accumulated. Be sure to remove any table leafs you might have on the kitchen and dining room tables, this will help to make the room look more spacious. If you have multiple oversized pieces of furniture in your living room, consider storing or relocating any pieces that "shrink" the appearance of the room. This applies to bedrooms too! Not a bad idea to start packing seasonal clothes not in use, and removing them from the closets to expand the appearance of the closet space.
