Since you will be moving anyway, pack up unnecessary items to remove the clutter around the house. Remove most of the personal type items since you want the buyers to be looking at your home, not your personal life. Make sure the home is thoroughly clean so there is a feeling that the home is well maintained. Walk through the house with the eyes of a buyer and look for the things you could repair, touch up, or showcase. Remember why you liked the home in the first place and make sure you showcase those same things. Your realtor is a good resource to help you decide what needs to be done with consideration of the probable sales price of the home so you won't invest more than you should.

Curb Appeal, think when you bought a home and what is the first impression when you drive up.
Nice front door creates anticipation of what is inside. Open the door and house looks and smells wonderful, nice music softly playing, and of course immaculate. Make the actual visit that buyers have pleasant and wonderful. That feeling does not go away.

Additional, nice Realtor flyers appropiately placed, nice picture and realtor tours if you have.
