Well the answer would be more specific if and when having seen a home, as the reasons of where to put the money is different for each home, as some work has been done and some not and that differs in each and every home, the size, price range and age of home also will require different items to be considered.
But in general the home should be uncluttered and personal items removed
Clean clean and extra clean, sparkling windows, clean floors (whether removing carpeting or cleaning or replacing it
If appliances are truly old and outdated, that may be a great place to replace, nice new and clean
And one of the easiest and probably least expensive ways of upgrading and getting a home ready for
sale is PAINT, may be not all the rooms, not even all the walls, just depends, but a few walls, a bathroom with an interesting en vogue color, will make a huge difference....
And if the home is decorated with outdated old curtains, may be removing them and replacing them
with shutters or mini blinds will bring the home to a more modern state.
But the places where money needs to be put could be very very different for another home.
A good Realtor will be great to give the right advice!
