    When you sell your home, you want to sell it quickly and for as much profit as possible.

    But if you want to fetch top dollar for your home, what do you need to check off your to-do list before you list your home?

    recent video from realtor.com outlined the most important things sellers should do before listing their home, including:

    • Declutter. If your house is filled to the brim with stuff, buyers may think the home doesn’t have enough storage space. Before you list, make sure to declutter any open areas (like counters or window sills) and pare down closets and drawers. The less visible stuff you have, the more spacious your home will appear—and the more attractive it will be to buyers.
    • Repaint walls to neutral walls. You may love the fuschia accent wall in your living room—but potential buyers may not agree. Before you list your home, make sure to repaint with neutral colors, like off-white or beige—which have more universal appeal than bolder, brighter hues.
    • Invest in professional photos. In the age of COVID-19, buyers are relying on online listings more than ever—making listing photos extremely important. Make sure to invest in a professional real estate photographer; a professional can take photos that showcase your home in the best possible way—and in a way that’s going to attract buyers.
