1.  Define the Space

Try and eliminate confusion in the space; roll the exercise equipment out of the way, corral the toys into a basket or bin, remove appliances from the kitchen counter


2.  Make a Path

Create an easy to navigate path in all rooms for buyers and agents.  Keep in mind that some buyers may have medical equipment such as walkers, so leave room for optimal maneuverability


3.  Use Color for Direction of Eye

Colors such as Reds and Yellows are known as "Advancing Colors" and blues and greens are "Receding Colors".  If you want to draw the eye to a beautiful counter top, place a bowl of vibrant apples or peppers on top.  To direct the gaze to the fireplace, hang a painting with yellow hues above the mantle.  Is there a darker, dreary corner nearby?  Place a green plant in that location


4.  Flattering Lighting

Replace stark light bulbs with warmer light bulbs, especially near mirrors


5.  Oil that Hinge

Keep squeaks down to a minimum and oil door hinges, and try to dampen the sound of a creaky floor
