1. If you have no idea what you are doing, bring in a professional colour specialist to help  (Call Melissa.. Say Whaaaat Who put that there)
2. Take out your personality, you are moving no need to have your touch in the space. A future buyer needs to be able to picture their life in your home, having everything to match your lifestyle will cloud that and caused your home to stay on the market for too long.
3. If you suck at painting just accept it, hire someone.

 These are just a few of the big details you can do to add more to your home value. In doing just one of these you are able to add thousands to the value. The most important thing to keep in mind is, to remember that you are moving. This will no longer be your home, so when choosing new finishes, colours and tiles don’t go with what you like, go with something neutral. Everyone has their own personal style, so don’t take it too personally when someone doesn’t like what you have done. You put your home up for sale for a reason, leave the past in the past and be excited for the new beginning in your new home.
