HomeGain.com presented the following cost/benefit analysis for 2012 along with Realtor recommendations.
Mind you, often by doing 1 (Clean & de-clutter) and 8 (paint interior walls), 2 (Lighten & brighten) is a result.
Locally, you can have a home stager provide a consultation. Usually a hour or two, it's a couple of hundred dollars well spent. What to de-clutter, colour schemes, further services or complete service. You choose from a portfolio of assistance.
It's a proven fact. That people living in the same surroundings don't notice things they daily experience. Fresh, skilled eyes can do so much.
Home stagers, de-clutterers, decorators I know of. Speak to any or all of them.
