There were good suggestions from the agents that already reply to you. but you should consider interview agents to view your house, so that your house can be priced,and your rooms stage creating a focal point and story for each room.
Many of the most impotant service and steps are performed behind the scense.

Values will be dictated by local market conditions; however simple cosmetics oftentimes do make a property more appealing, thus adding some value; fresh paint, removing any old carpeting and having sparkling clean floors, no bulky furniture therefore removing/rearranging, squeeky clean kitchen, bathroom(s) and windows, no clutter, neat and orderly closets, fresh curtains/blinds, good lighting, spruce up the exterior for curb appeal, etc.

Make your HOME BIGGER, remove unused furniture and extra clutter from closets, garage, balcony
Make your HOME HAPPY, paint with popular fresh pastel/ neon colors.
Make HOME for SALE - family PROJECT. When your family strong - each corner is clean and in good order.
Family FRIENDSHIP will increase home value. Good Luck!

Fresh coat of paint in neutral color, updated lighting fixtures, decluttered closets, cleaned or new grout on tiles - these are just a few things that will make the house pop, and increase its appeal with buyers. The value of the house is not necessarily tied with the improvements, since you never recover a full cost of improvements, but it sure helps in attracting better offers. An experienced agent should be able to give you pointers that relate directly to your property.
