There are many ways to spruce up the inside of your home some cost money and some are very cheap to do. In today's buyers market buyers are looking for a turnkey property. Unless they are getting a great deal on the property most are not looking to buy and remodel. Here are some interior tips on preparing your home to sell in the Orlando real estate market.

Clean your home - This is the cheapest way and one of the most important things you can do for your house. Buyers want to know that a home has been cared for. Your home should be immaculate and inviting when a potential buyer views your home. Make your home shine as if it were a model home, clean like you have never cleaned before. Most buyers want to move right in not spend a week getting the home clean after closing.

Paint - Does your home need to be painted? Painting is an affordable way to spruce up any home. Choose light neutral colors. This will give the home a fresh feeling and make your house look larger at the same time.

Carpets -Are your carpets looking like they need to be cleaned or replaced? Having your carpets professionally cleaned may be all it takes but if they are still look like they have seen their day consider replacing them. Consider a neutral style carpet which is very attractive, plush, durable and best of all the latest trend.

Clean up the clutter and get organized - Homes in Orlando are notorious for not having enough storage space. We typically do not have basements, attics and garages can fill up very quickly. Get rid of all your junk, donate it or have a garage sale. Having a garage sale may free up some extra money that can be put towards getting your home in better shape for a pending sale.

Light fixtures - Updating outdated light fixtures can make a remarkable difference in how your house shows.
