GOOD MORNING, GREAT TO BE HERE.

LET'S SAY YOU ARE ASSESSING YOUR HOME.

WHAT ARE THE TOP THINGS YOU SHOULD DO TO GET YOUR HOME READY? WE SURVEYED MORE THAN 300 REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS AND ASK THEM JUST THAT WESTERN.

A COUPLE OF THINGS ROSE TO THE TOP, BUT THROUGHOUT THE HOME, IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO DE-CLUT TER AND DEPERSONALIZE.

THEY NEED TO BE ABLE TO IMAGINE THEMSELVES IN YOUR HOME.

THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THAT IF EVERYTHING IS ON THE WALLS.

ANYTHING THAT REPRESENTS YOUR FAMILY, WHAT YOU DO FOR FUN, TAKE ALL OF THAT OUT? EXACTLY.

I AM SURE YOU HAVE THE CUTEST KIDS IN THE WORLD, BUT THOSE BUYERS DO NOT NECESSARILY WANT TO SEE THEM.

IF YOU HAD TW ROOMS TO FOCUS ON, WHICH WOULD YOU FOCUS ON, AND WHICH WEDGEWOOD YOU POUR MONEY INTO — WHICH ONES WOULD YOU POUR MONEY INTO? FIRST THE KITCHEN.

IT IS A CLICHE THAT THE KITCHEN SELLS THE HOUSE, BUT IT IS PARTLY TRUE.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO RENOVATE THE WHOLE KITCHEN, BUT A FEW SMART THINGS LIKE PAINTING THE CABINETS, PUTTING IN NEW CURTAINS.

IF IT IS SEVERELY OUTDATED, INVESTING IN NEW APPLIANCES, WHICH YOU CAN DO FOR UNDER $2000.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ABOUT COUNTERTOPS, IS IT WORTH IT TO UPGRADE, OR FOCUS ON THE WALLS AND APPLIANCES? IF THE COUNTERTOPS ARE VERY OLD AND BEAT UP, IT CAN BE A WORTHWHILE INVESTMENT.

THERE ARE SOME VERY INEXPENSIVE OPTIONS.

LAMINATE HAS GOTTEN A LOT BETTER LOOKING.

THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE INSTANT MAKEOVER WITHOUT BREAKING YOUR BUDGET.

THE EXTERIOR IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE INTERIOR, ISN'T IT? YES, FIRST IMPRESSIONS.

MOW THE LAWN, TRIM THE SHRUBS.

A FRESH COAT OF PAINT ON THE FRONT DOOR CAN REALLY IMPROVE THE CURB APPEAL.

THE ROOF IS ANOTHER THING.

IF IT IS OLD, THAT IS THE FIRST THING EVERY BUYER ASKS ABOUT.

IT MAY COST YOU SOME MONEY, BUT IN OUR SURVEY, WE FOUND YOU COULD GET $10,000 TO $15,000 BACK IN TERMS OF THE ASKING PRICE.
