Interior:  De-clutter even if you have to hire a specialist to give you advice.  Buyers want to see a room that is equal to a new construction model.  Newly painted interior in off-white neutral colors.  Non scented rooms.   Keep the walls uncluttered also.  Better to have 1 large picture than several smaller pictures.  Set up the furniture to allow buyers to freely walk around the room.  Neutral furnishings allow buyers to envision their own style furniture in the same space.

Keep all pets out of the rooms.  Don't allow the dogs to be heard barking.

Visit a new construction housing complex and see the showrooms and model units to get an idea of what the best decorating ideas are.

In 2018/2019 furniture painted in glossy white is better than natural wood.

Find 1 large tall vase that you can put on the floor and add some dried branches. Even painting the branches white.  It doesn't have to cost a lot to decorate.

Cleaning is the next important category.  Bathrooms have to be spotless.  Grout may have to be redone.  Living room and bedroom hardwood floors need sanding and replace old carpets with new (neutral color) carpets.  

If you think they will buy it "as is" and decorate after they buy it - the odds are they won't.  They want to be presented with a spotless beautiful home or they are not interested.  Also, many buyers want the remodeling and repairs built into their mortgage.  They do not have the money to pay for remodeling after they have obtained a mortgage.

With these tips you will get more money for your home AND it will sell faster.
